EDC Serial Number EDC0000164
Title Spatio-temporal heat demand for LSOAs in England and Wales
Data Location
EDC Stored Dataset
Description Annual heat demand data for England and Wales at Lower Layer Super Output Area (LSOA) level, before and after energy efficiency measures. Normalised half-hourly profiles for heat production and energy consumption of different heating technologies. Costs for energy efficiency measures by local authority.
Sector Domestic
Coverage England and Wales
England and Wales at Lower Layer Super Output Area (LSOA) level. LSOAs based on the 2011 census data.
Start: 20/05/2021
End: 01/01/2049
Modeled heat demand data created in 2021, using 2018 dwelling data and 2013 air temperature data.

Other Information The three datasets available for download include:
  1. Annual heat demand data before and after adopting energy efficiency measures for 16 dwelling categories for all the LSOAs in England and Wales.
  2. Normalised half-hourly profiles for the heat production and energy consumption of air-source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, gas boilers and resistance heaters based on the UK average daily outside air temperature profile from 2013
  3. The estimated costs to implement the energy efficiency measures to reach the annual heat demand displayed in the annual heat demand dataset, for each local authority in England and Wales.
