Domestic Heating (Oil & Gas) – Actual vs Target

This is a calculation of total parish emissions from heating based on averages per house. Each year, we will ask everyone to enter their latest usage data, so we can see actual performance against target

Please enter your usage for 2019 with the chance to win one of three fantastic gifts. Each extra house improves the accuracy of this data, helping us understand what we need to do to hit Net Zero carbon – which in turn helps us in lobbying for more financial assistance, particularly for lower income households.

Submit your data

Alternatively, bring your bills to one of the Saturday markets and we’ll do it for you.

NB in response to feedback, we are now starting with 2019 not 2018

Graphs and data on this page will update automatically 5 or 10 mins after you enter your data.

In January 2021, we will ask people to enter their 2020 data, and we’ll repeat the exercise each year until 2030. Actual data will accumulate on this graph, giving us a sense of whether the parish is on track in its aim to achieve zero carbon. This is a bold target and it won’t be surprising if we’re behind target, but that will provide great ammunition for lobbying SHDC & DCC for more funding support for people upgrading heating etc.

The more people that participate, the better our estimated emissions will be. The following graph shows how many households have participated so far, out of a total of 356 houses.

Methodology

If you want to review the calculations behind the above graphs, the following table shows the data used to generate the above charts. Any feedback gratefully received.

NB No individual data will be shown. This project is about reducing the carbon emissions of the whole parish.
