This model was developed by Cambridge Architectural Research for DECC to underpin the 2012 Housing Energy Fact File and Energy Consumption in the UK, and to inform housing policy decisions. It is being published to encourage scrutiny of the model, and in line with Government policies on transparency. The model is still being developed, and we welcome feedback and comments about it.

The model uses English Housing Survey 2011 data, coupled to a SAP-based energy calculator, to estimate energy use and CO2 emissions for all homes in England, broken down by final use.
