Total monthly electricity consumption in the United Kingdom (UK) 2014-2019

Monthly electricity consumption from all electricity suppliers in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2014 to 2019 (in terawatt-hours)

by Ian Tiseo, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Total monthly electricity consumption in the United Kingdom (UK) 2014-2019 Electricity consumption has varied from month to month and year to year during the period in question. Demand was consistently higher in the winter months, especially January. Consumption in January 2019 amounted to 28.46 TWh, an increase from the previous year.
Domestic users consume the most electricity

  Although the industrial sectors electricity demand was higher in 1990 and 2000, domestic consumers have been the majority end users of electricity in the UK since the 1970’s. Domestic electricity consumption was on average highest in the South West of England, at 4,279 kilowatt-hours.

Electricity demand in decline

Electricity use in the United Kingdom has seen a significant decrease since the turn of the century. Demand peaked in 2005 at 357.2 TWh but had fallen to just 305.93 TWh by 2018. This is despite the population of the UK growing by approximately five million people during this period. In 2017, the UK was the only EU country to reduce its power use. Despite the demand for electricity falling, projections show this won’t last. Whilst consumption will continue to fall until approximately 2020, it is expected to increase in the following decades, rising in 2035 to similar levels recorded in 2005.
