Domestic energy price statistics

Data on average prices paid by United Kingdom households for their energy, and the methods used to pay for it.

These domestic energy price statistics focus on the average prices paid by households for their energy (predominantly gas and electricity) and the methods they use to pay for it. We present regional customer number proportions to illustrate the state of the UK domestic energy market.

They provide data on:

  • households using gas within Great Britain, by region
  • households using electricity within United Kingdom, by region
  • payment types
  • types of contract households have with energy companies

Data on competition in the market is presented through the energy company switching statistics.


Previous editions of the data are available from The National Archives. ​ ##Contact us​
