Average domestic consumption of electricity in the UK 2017, by region In 2017, the average household domestic electricity consumption in the United Kingdom was highest in the Southwest of England, at 4,279 kilowatt hours. In comparison, consumption in the North East of England amounted to 3,347 kilowatt hours, the lowest consumption of all regions.
End user consumption
  From 1970 to 2005, domestic electricity consumption increased significantly. However, since 2005 consumption decreased from approximately 125.7 terawatt hours to 105.4 terawatt hours. Despite this decline, domestic consumption was consistently higher than industrial user consumption, which amounted to 92.9 terawatt hours in 2017.

Projections show an increase

Electricity consumption from all electricity suppliers in the UK has seen a dramatic decrease, and in 2018 fell to approximately 306 terawatt hours. Although consumption has been in decline, projections show that it is expected to see a recovery over the following two decades, with consumption in 2035 reaching similar levels those seen in 2005.
