30 June 2011: DECC has today published some initial analysis on the domestic sector from its National Energy Efficiency Data (NEED) Framework. The initial report covers:
- How take up of energy efficiency measures has varied between types of property and household.
- Statistical comparisons of gas and electricity consumption in 2008 by property and household types.
- Analysis of the savings made by households that have installed energy efficiency measures(for example cavity wall insulation or condensing boilers).
The analysis report finds that “There are large differences for insulation measures with only 4 per cent of properties in London receiving insulation measures compared to the national average of 13 per cent.“
The initial analysis report and two accompanying spreadsheets are all downloadable from DECC’s Energy Efficiency Statistics webpage. A summary of the findings are provided in an article in the June issue of DECC’s Energy Trends journal.
