What is the Average Gas Usage in the UK?

05-22-2018 10:27 AM CET | Energy & Environment

Press release from: Smarter Business

The latest figures released by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) give an indication of the average gas usage and cost for domestic customers in 2017, broken down by region with average unit costs.

Where does the BEIS get its data?
The BEIS receives data directly from the main energy companies that supply gas throughout the UK. The suppliers provide the BEIS with figures for each tariff:

Standing charges
Unit costs
Split levels
Number of customers
Tariff changes

They then split the tariff information by region and payment types.

Average gas usage has changed…

The BEIS bases its data on fixed consumption of 15,000 kWh per year. Interestingly, previous domestic gas estimates (from the 1990’s) were based on standard consumption levels of 18,000kWh. In recent years, however, the average gas usage of typical households has changed, leading the BEIS to revise the levels to 15,000kWh for gas.

Average domestic gas costs in 2017*

Region Unit Cost Bill
East Midlands 4,10 615
Eastern 4,18 627
London 4,37 656
Merseyside & North Wales 4,20 630
North East 4,12 617
North Scotland 4,20 630
North West 4,16 624
South East 4,28 641
South Scotland 4,16 624
South Wales 4,25 638
South West 4,27 640
Southern 4,31 647
West Midlands 4,15 623
Yorkshire 4,06 609
Great Britain Total 4,20 630

How do these figures compare to 2016?

Average Direct Debit gas bills in Great Britain decreased by £6 in 2017 compared to average bills in 2016.

The average Standard Credit gas bills dropped by £10 in 2017.
What about average gas usage for businesses?

A simple way to compare your businesses’ gas to the average gas usage of other businesses is to break them down by size.

Here are the average gas usage figures for UK businesses, broken down by employee size:

1-10 employees: 5,000 kWh – 15,000 kWh
11-50 employees: 15,000 kWh – 30,000 kWh
51-250 employees: 30,000 kWh – 65,000 kWh
251+ employees: 65,000 kWh +

Although these figures and indicative of average gas usage for UK businesses, remember that every organisation has unique consumption habits. And no matter whether your business falls below or above these averages, it’s likely that your business stands to save on gas by having an effective energy strategy in place.
