Findings from the sixteenth quarterly wave of the DECC Public Attitudes Tracking survey.
The sixteenth wave of data was collected between 9 December 2015 and 13 December 2015 using face-to-face in-home interviews with a representative sample of 2,121 households in the UK. Full details of the methodology are provided in the technical note.
Wave 16 includes new questions on fracking, energy use and concerns about energy dependence. In comparison to the previous survey, questions on renewable energy development, renewable heat, energy awareness and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) awareness were deliberately not asked. These questions will be asked again in the next annual survey (wave 17) as part of a planned approach.
