The rise in oil prices has been good for Greenergy, which supplies petrol and diesel to supermarkets, local councils and bus companies across Britain. By buying oil from the Continent, South America, Russia and Africa and mixing up low-carbon versions for supermarket pumps, it has grown with its customers, the largest of which is Tesco. Founded by Andrew Owens, it claims that competitive prices and good service – it will often deliver within the hour – has led to sales growing 64% a year, from an annualised £54.1m in 2001 to £239.5m in 2004, though margins are slim.
