  • The methodology used in this publication was updated on 21 February 2014 to include the number of Economy 7 electricity meters with the number of ordinary electricity meters in the denominator of the calculation of mean household energy consumption. This provides a better proxy of the number of households and therefore better estimates of average household energy consumption.

This publication contains analysis of domestic energy consumption data, produced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change and available on the Neighbourhood Statistics Service website, to explore the geographical variations in average (mean) total household energy consumption in England and Wales over time.

Energy consumption statistics are an important means of assessing the impact of changes in environmental policy, structure and regulation of energy companies, public awareness of environmental issues and energy saving initiatives. The publication will be of interest to those involved with environmental and energy policy-making and research, particularly at the regional and local level.
