BEIS has collected and compiled estimates of gas consumption at regional (NUTS1) and local authority levels (LAU1 – formally NUTS 4) using data at meter-point level from the re-structured gas distribution network.

The data is an aggregation of Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) readings throughout Great Britain as part of our annual meter point gas data exercise. Key points about the data are:

  • the figures relate to gas consumption in Great Britain
  • covers the gas year (1 October 2010 and 30 September 2011)
  • subject to a weather correction factor

In March 2008, this gas consumption dataset gained National Statistics status. This status applies to all data from 2005 onwards. Please note that the 2004 data are still classed as experimental. Gas consumption statistics for 2004 (experimental), and 2005 to 2016 (National Statistics) are available below. Included in the dataset are estimates of:

  • sub-national gas sales for all MPRN’s in Great Britain
  • number of gas meters in Great Britain
  • domestic gas sales and meter numbers
  • non-domestic gas sales and meter numbers
  • average domestic consumption per meter (at a regional level)
  • average non-domestic consumption per meter (at a regional level)

Figures for the domestic and non-domestic sectors:
