The English House Condition Survey (EHCS) was a national survey of housing in England. It was originally called the National House Condition Survey and covered England and Wales. From April 2008, the EHCS merged with the Survey of English Housing (SEH) to form the English Housing Survey (EHS). The English House Condition Survey (EHCS) was a national survey of housing in England, commissioned by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). The survey was originally called the National House Condition Survey and covered England and Wales. The EHCS ran quinquennially from 1967-2001. From 2002, the survey moved to a continuous basis and the data were provided as a two-year rolling sample of approximately 16,000 cases. From April 2008, the EHCS merged with the Survey of English Housing (SEH) to form the English Housing Survey (EHS).
The English Housing Survey (EHS) began in 2008 as a continuous national survey collecting information about peoples 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. The survey has a complex multi-stage methodology consisting of 3 main elements: an initial interview survey of around 17,000 households with a follow-up physical inspection and a desk-based market valuation of a sub-sample of 8,000 of these dwellings, including vacant dwellings. The interview survey sample forms part of the Integrated Household Survey (IHS), and the core questions from the IHS form part of the EHS questionnaire.
The English Housing Survey (EHS), 2012: Fuel Poverty Dataset is derived from the 2012 EHS database. 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. 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.
Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) has published a complete list of Great Britain postcodes that are not connected to the mains gas grid, up-to-date for 2017. Also included are the census area and the co-ordinates of the centre of each postcode on the list. NB There are over 381,385 postcodes in this dataset. Please be aware that conversion to other file formats such as .xls may result in loss of data, because not all spreadsheets support a sufficient number of rows. After conversion, please check the number of records before you use the data (the final postcode - ZE3 9JZ - should be in row number 381,386).

Rights: Milton Keynes Energy Park Dwelling
Hourly energy consumption data gathered from 94 (originally 160) low energy homes in Milton Keynes Energy Park (1989-1991). These homes were of conventional design for the UK (35 different designs) but included energy efficiency features (primarily increased insulation in the roof, wall, and flooring and energy efficient boilers) so that they correspond with SAP values of 75-90. The results were used to generate a database of energy consumption data to assist in development of the Building Research Establishment Domestic Energy Model (BREDEM). The ReadMe_MiltonKeynes.html file contains more detailed information about the datasets. Registration with EDC is required for access to the data. This data was originally collected by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) during a project in 1988-91 in an area then known as Milton Keynes Energy Park, located some 75 km north-west of London. The study monitored more than 100 sites for hourly electricity and gas consumption; the dwellings essentially follow conventional UK housing design, but were built in 1987 to higher standards for energy performance than were required by the building regulations at that time (Edwards, 1990). They incorporated energy efficiency features, such as increased floor, wall, and loft insulation, double-glazing, and in some cases condensing boilers, so that they broadly corresponded to UK building standards of almost a decade later. The data has been rescued off the original 5.25 inch floppy disks by Steve Pretlove of UCL towards his PhD thesis and has since been cleaned and further processed by Alex Summerfield. Data were successfully retrieved for 94 sites with more than 200 days of valid date each. Some building data, including floor areas and U-values were recovered, unfortunately related social data, such as the number of occupants in each household, were not available. Reference: J. Edwards (1990), Low energy dwellings in the Milton Keynes Energy Park, Energy Management v26 p32-33. See also: numerous internal Buildings Research Establishment (BRE) reports. Note that there are some missing data points largely due to problems of recovery from the original media (the data from July 1989 are missing from many data sets) but nonetheless there are many sites with > 12 months of data.

The Survey of English Housing (SEH) was a continuous annual survey series, which began in 1993 and covered a sample of 20,000 responding households each year. The survey provided key housing data on tenure, owner occupation and the social rented sector, and regular information about the private rented sector. It was a multi-purpose housing survey which provided a comprehensive range of basic information on households and their housing and full information on the private rented sector. The SEH was subsumed into the English Housing Survey (EHS) in 2008.
