Household Electricity Survey

This series brings together all the documents relating to the Household Electricity Survey.

The Household Electricity Survey (HES) was the most detailed monitoring of electricity use ever carried out in the UK.

Electricity consumption was monitored at an appliance level in 250 owner-occupied households across England from 2010 to 2011. Extensive analysis has been undertaken on appliance ownership, labels, actual efficiencies and potential for savings in different social groups. The study has also examined the scope for reducing peak electricity demand.

Three spreadsheet tools to allow users to examine the data themselves.
