DECC published a special feature article in Energy Trends December 2013 proposing to change the consumption levels used in bills.1 This article requested user’s views on the proposals. The feedback received was supportive of revising consumption levels in light of changes in recent years, whilst some also requested that DECC align consumption levels with Ofgem, who publish bills using both median and mean consumption.
Historically DECC have used mean household consumption levels of 3,300kWh/year for electricity, and 18,000kWh/year for gas. The exact source for these initial estimates is unclear, as they have been used by DECC and its predecessor Departments since at least the early 1990’s, but until the past few years have been reasonable estimates of annual use.
