Home Analytics is our unique proprietary housing stock database, covering over 27 million properties across Great Britain and incorporating 120 energy variables for each site. This includes suitability for renewables and risk of fuel poverty.
The Home Analytics database has continued to grow since it launched in 2013, using Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) records as its primary data source. Other datasets include the Home Energy Efficiency Database, managed by Energy Saving Trust and incorporating 10 million records, and the Home Energy Check tool, which is used by householders to improve their energy profile. Land Registry and Ordnance Survey records add to the picture.
The great thing about Home Analytics is that it creates a complete profile for every region and then builds predictive models to fill in any missing gaps of information, making it the most accurate and comprehensive database out there.
“Wirral Council would certainly recommend Home Analytics, PEAT and the non-domestic buildings report to other local authorities looking for similar information, to assist them in improving buildings in the transition to low and zero carbon.”
– Ed Kingsley, principal strategic housing and investment officer, Wirral Council
Local authorities use it to baseline their housing stock as they tackle the climate emergency, using our Portfolio Energy Assessment Tool (PEAT) to analyse the raw data to identify the best carbon reduction actions for every property.
Commercial businesses use it as a lead generating tool to understand which of their products or services would be most relevant for a particular area. This works well with our product certification or energy communications consultancy.
