‘Energy Consumption in the United Kingdom’ (ECUK) is an annual statistical publication that provides a comprehensive review of energy consumption and changes in efficiency, intensity and output since the 1970s, with a particular focus on trends since 2000.

ECUK is split into five chapters:

  • Chapter 1: Overall energy consumption in the UK
  • Chapter 2: Transport sector energy consumption
  • Chapter 3: Domestic sector energy consumption
  • Chapter 4: Industrial sector energy consumption
  • Chapter 5: Services sector energy consumption

Each chapter contains an Excel workbook and a factsheet summarising key trends and information within that sector.

Published alongside these chapters are two additional Excel workbooks which contain all of the ECUK tables. These figures are provided in thousand tonnes of oil equivalent and terawatt hours.

A user guide is also available. Readers are advised to utilise this booklet to help them understand complex terms and concepts used throughout the publication. As ECUK is presently updated on a phased basis, this guide also contains publication dates for each table in the series.
