<p class="x_x_x_MsoNoSpacing"><span>The Smart Energy Research Lab (SERL) Observatory facilitates a broad range of energy demand research and is a unique data resource for research where access to high resolution, large scale energy data linked to relevant contextual data is required.&nbsp;</span>Further information about SERL can be found on the&nbsp;<a href="">Smart Energy Research Lab</a><a href="" target="_blank" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"></a>&nbsp;website.</p><p class="x_x_x_MsoNoSpacing">This dataset of aggregated statistics is available under standard Safeguarded (End User Licence) access conditions. It contains around 110,000 rows and describes domestic gas and electricity energy use in Great Britain in 2021 based on data from the Smart Energy Research Lab (SERL) Observatory, which consists of smart meter and contextual data from approximately 13,000 homes that are broadly representative of the GB population in terms of region and Index of Multiple Deprivation&nbsp;(IMD) quintile. This aggregated dataset can be used, for example, to show how residential energy use in GB varies over time (monthly over the year and half-hourly over the course of the day); and can be broken down by occupant characteristics (number of occupants, tenure), property characteristics (age, size, form, and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)), by type of heating system, presence of solar panels and of electric vehicles, and by weather, region and IMD quintile.&nbsp;</p><p class="x_x_x_MsoNoSpacing"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Secure Access data</span><span style="font-weight: 700;"><br></span>A more detailed set of SERL data, including smart meter data and additional contextual data, is available under restricted Secure access conditions under&nbsp;<a href="" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">SN 8666: Smart Energy Research Lab Observatory Data: Secure Access</a><a href="" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"></a>. It is a longitudinal dataset containing records from August 2019, with updates provided to researchers on a (roughly) quarterly basis. Users should download this safeguarded access statistical study first to see whether it is suitable for their needs before considering an application for the Secure dataset.</p> <div> <div id="x_x_x_ftn1"></div> </div>
