Research on household electricity use

DECC have finally published all of the research which I conducted with Cambridge Architectural Research Ltd analysing the Household Electricity Survey. This dataset includes monitored use of 5860 appliances in 250 households for one month to a year. The results include how much energy is wasted in standby mode, what our peak consumption consists of, how much energy appliances use compared to their rated energy consumption, how electricity use varies between ages, socio-economic groups, working status and many other interesting much more.

Also there is an article in Buildings magazine based on some of our analysis of this data: What Can We Learn from the Household Electricity Survey.

If it is my workshops you are interested in, you can download the slides from this page. You might also like to play a game to test your knowledge of energy use or carbon savings. If it is my boook Energy and carbon emissions: the way we live today that has brought you to my site, then you will find information and extra resources here.
