Energy Performance Certificates for all UK domestic & non-domestic buildings. The dataset combines surveyed EPC registry data for England, Wales and Scotland with a methodology to infill missing data for buildings without EPC certificates.
Full Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) coverage for UK domestic and commercial buildings. Only 50% of UK buildings have an EPC certificate. We use statistical techniques to match un-surveyed buildings to surveyed-archetypes cross referencing multiple data sources.
The dataset combines property attributes, geographical factors, such as region or rurality, and socio-demographic information, such as tenure and fuel poverty. Combining this wide range of variables provides a unique dataset of homes throughout the UK, with detail available down to the level of individual addresses. This information can support local authorities and businesses in targeting intervention strategies, growth plans, product and energy efficiency initiatives.
Project RESOP (Regional Energy System Optimisation Planning) aims to take a ‘whole system’ approach, by drawing together data from multiple sources into a single tool that can be used to plan retrofit and roll out of low carbon technologies (LCTs) like electric vehicle charge points.
In November 2021, following a public tender process, Advanced Infrastructure was appointed to provide an energy mapping tool for project LEO utilising Advanced Infrastructure’s LAEP+ software service. This provided an excellent opportunity to test and validate the value of geospatial solutions for local area energy planning.
In June 2021, Advanced Infrastructure and EB Charging were awarded funding from the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles to specify and build a cloud-based siting tool for EV charge points. The output was EV Site, an EV focussed instance of our planning tool LAEP+. Advanced Infrastructure’s Head of Product, Lily Cairns Haylor, discusses the challenges of siting EV charge points at scale and the ways digital approaches might accelerate the tricky process.
In collaboration with the Centre for Net Zero, Octopus Energy's not-for-profit spin out, we examined the impact of heat pump uptake between 2021 and 2031. For London Climate Action Week 2021 we visualised and compared a winter's peak in 2021, where Londoners are primarily kept warm by gas, to a winter's peak in 2031 where the rollout of 40,000 heat pumps shift heating demand from the gas network to the electricity network.
