Average domestic consumption of electricity in Great Britain 2019, by region

The East of England records the highest average household electricity consumption in Great Britain. In 2019, this came to 4,125 kilowatt hours. In comparison, households in the North East of England used the least amount of electricity.

End user consumption

From 1970 to 2005, domestic electricity consumption increased significantly. However, since 2005 consumption decreased from approximately 125.7 terawatt hours to 104 terawatt hours in 2019. Despite this decline, domestic consumption was consistently higher than industrial user consumption, the latest amounted to 93.2 terawatt hours in 2018.

Projections show an increase

Electricity consumption from all electricity suppliers in the UK has seen a dramatic decrease, and in 2019 fell to approximately 306.6 terawatt hours. Although consumption has been in decline, projections show that it is expected to rise again over the following two decades, with consumption in 2035 reaching similar levels those seen in 2005.
