Statistical data set

Energy data useful to local authorities

List of datasets containing information on energy generation, transport, area wide emissions and buildings at UK and regional/local level.

The Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) have developed a database which contains a selection of data sources that have been identified being useful for analysis at local level. Some of these datasets cover the UK as a whole, while some are more specific, at local level.

The data, captured in a spreadsheet, cover energy generation, transport, area wide emissions and buildings. The spreadsheet also contains some high level information such as ownership of the data, the latest release, a brief description of the dataset, coverage, type of activity the data can support, limitations, further information and the location on the web.
