National Energy study 2: How people use energy in the home 07/01/2016

Building on the findings of the first National Energy Study,  Sustainable Homes' second National Energy Study (NES 2) evaluates real energy use from over 520 homes over the period of the 2014/15 winter. The homes were spread across the country. 


The findings have implications for landlords, asset managers, those commissioning installations of boilers or other energy efficiency measures, energy efficiency advisors, housing staff and those working on fuel poverty.


This report provides useful insights including:


  • interesting insight into the interaction between various demographic, technical and social factors that affect energy use; 
  • A challenge to the assumption that combi-boilers are always the most efficient solution.
  • the surprising impacts of draughts - an issue not captured by EPC assessments
