The main aim of the 2011 Energy Follow-Up Survey was to collect new data on domestic energy use to improve our modelling and better inform policy. The survey consisted of follow-up interviews with a sub-set of households that formed part of the much larger 2010/2011 English Housing Survey. Some of these households were then selected to have temperature loggers and electricity meters installed and this was combined with information from gas and electricity meter readings. The data gathered is now being used to inform updates to the BRE Domestic Energy Model (BREDEM) and DECC’s own National Housing Model. It is also directly informing energy efficiency policy including the Green Deal.
