Assumptions and other factors

Assumptions and other factors

  • Replacement Rate of houses:

    • 50,000 -100,000 new, more efficient houses built each year

    • Conservation effects from this not seen till after 2010

  • Conservation measures:

    • In 1987 only 3% of homes had full insulation

    • In 2002 this had gone up to 15% of all homes

  • Lighting and appliances have all made homes use more energy

    • More homes have central heating


Factors affecting future energy use in the uk domestic sector

Factors Affecting Future Energy Use in the UK Domestic Sector

  • Size of population and number of households

  • Average Area of each household

  • Comfort level desired by each household

  • Demand for non-space heating process (water heating, cooking, appliances) by each household

  • Efficiency with which energy is used to meet space and water heating demand
