Powering the Nation 2 summarises the main findings and recommendations from research undertaken on the potential for energy savings and reducing peak electricity demand.
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, potential for savings in different social groups and the potential to reduce peak electricity demand. “Powering the Nation 2” summarises the main findings and recommendations from the project.
