The data includes energy use, floor area, emissions and efficiency ratings for 40,000 public buildings of over 1,000 m2 floor area in England and Wales. The dataset contains data from 2008 (the first year of the register), 2009, and 2010.

  Energy Consumption in the United Kingdom (ECUK) is an annual statistical publication that provides a comprehensive review of energy consumption and changes in efficiency, intensity and output since the 1970s, with particular focus on trends since 2000. ECUK is split into five chapters: (1) Overall energy consumption in the UK; (2) Transport sector energy consumption; (3) Domestic sector energy consumption; (4) Industrial sector energy consumption; (5)Services sector energy consumption. Each chapter contains an Excel workbook and a factsheet summarising key trends and information within that sector.
DECC Energy Trends
Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC)

  A set of maps, graphs and other figures showing countries power consumptions, population densities, and areas, and comparing power consumptions per unit area with the power production per unit area of various renewables.
Decarbonising the UK
Tyndall Centre
  2015 energy and emissions projections: projections of greenhouse gas emissions and energy demand from 2015 to 2035. The Decarbonising the UK scenarios were the first to fully integrate the energy system and include carbon dioxide emissions from air, sea and land transport. The scenarios integrate the perspectives of energy analysts, engineers, economists and social and environmental scientists to provide a whole system understanding of how the UK Government can achieve a true 60% carbon dioxide reduction target by 2050.
Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES)
Department of Energy & Climate Change
  DUKES is an extensive collections of tables, charts and commentary with separate sections on coal, petroleum, gas, electricity, renewables and combined heat and power, providing a comprehensive picture of energy production and use over the last five years, with key series taken back to 1970. 2013 to date are online here, while older data is available at the National Archive.
Energy Company Obligation data: low income and rural areas eligible for CSCO
Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC)
  Data to help with targeting measures to households and stats about progress to date. The Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) is an energy efficiency programme introduced into Great Britain at the beginning of 2013, which places legal obligations on the larger energy suppliers to deliver energy efficiency measures to domestic energy users. ECO replaced two previous schemes, the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP). The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) published this list of over 4,800 Lower Super Output areas judged eligible for ECO funding in 2012, asserting that the original publication by the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) in June 2012 was not in an easily accessible format.
English House Conditions Survey (EHCS)
Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG)
  The English House Condition Survey (EHCS) was a national English survey which covered "all tenures and involved a physical inspection of property by professional surveyors". The EHCS was subsumed into the English Housing Survey (EHS) in 2008. Key data includes energy performance indicators, building demographics, and socio-demographics.
English Housing Survey (EHS)
Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG)
  The English Housing Survey (EHS) began in 2008 as a continuous national survey collecting information about people's housing circumstances and the condition and energy efficiency of housing in England. The EHS brought together two previous survey series - the English House Condition Survey (EHCS) and the Survey of English Housing (SEH) - into a single fieldwork operation. The EHS covers all housing tenures and provides valuable information and evidence to inform the development and monitoring of government housing policies.
English Housing Survey 2012: Fuel Poverty Dataset
Department of Energy and Climate Change
  The English Housing Survey, 2012: Fuel Poverty Dataset is derived from the 2012 EHS database created by the DCLG. This database is constructed from fieldwork carried out between April 2011 and March 2013. The midpoint of this period is April 2012, which can be considered as the reference date for the fuel poverty dataset. Guidance on use of EHS data provided by DCLG should also be applied to the fuel poverty dataset. The dataset is the outcome of analysis conducted to produce estimates of the number of households living in fuel poverty in England in 2012. Previously, a household was defined as being fuel poor if they spent more than 10% of their income on fuel.
Fuel poverty statistics
Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC)
  Statistics relating to the demographics of fuel poverty in England, where fuel poverty is defined by the Low Income / High Costs balance, which considers a household to be in fuel poverty if: (i) the household has required fuel costs above average (national median level) and (ii) was the household to spend that amount it would be left with a residual income below the official poverty line.
Homes Energy Efficiency Database (HEED)
Energy Saving Trust (EST)
  HEED's primary purpose is to capture retrofit energy efficiency measures in the UK housing stock (over 15 million homes and 150 million data items). The largest volumes of data derive from government-mandated schemes (e.g. EEC, CERT) or industry bodies (e.g. FENSA, CIGA). Data are captured and stored at the address level with a date stamp. Operated by the Energy Saving Trust.
Household Electricity Survey (HES) - Sample
Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC)
  The HES measured electricity consumption at an appliance level in 250 owner-occupied households across England from 2010 to 2011, the most detailed monitoring of electricity use ever carried out in the UK. Extensive analysis has been undertaken on appliance ownership, labels, actual efficiencies and potential for savings in different social groups. The study has also examined the scope for reducing peak electricity demand.
Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) data with eligibility data for CESP
Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE)
  The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) combined census data on neighbourhood statistics with fuel poverty indicators to develop this database of Lower Super Output Areas (LSOA) in England as a tool for targeting the lowest income households eligible for assistance under the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP) in 2009. The Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP) was designed to target the lowest income households living in homes that need significant investment in energy saving measures and low carbon technologies

United Nations Energy Statistics Database
United Nations Statistics Division
  The Energy Statistics Database provides statistics on production, trade, transformation and consumption (end-use) for solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels, electricity, and heat. The database contains data in their original units (e.g. metric tonnes, GWh) as well as calorific values to allow interfuel comparison in a common energy unit (terajoules). The most recent four years in the database are disseminated through the Energy Statistics Yearbook and the Energy Balances and Electricity Profiles. Downloadable views of the data from 1990 to 2012 are available free of charge on-line through the UNdata portal.
