Abstract

The objective of this report is to provide Gwynedd Council with the foundation needed to develop robust strategies to improve the energy efficiency of dwellings within the Local Authority. A database of all available EPCs for the area is analysed to provide a picture of the current state of the housing stock. These analysed dwellings are then used to approximate the state of all dwellings, taking into account the location of properties and typological differences. Consequently, the model formed provides information on the condition of all properties within the Local Authority broken down to smaller geographical areas. This alone is a valuable knowledge base for future housing energy efficiency plans whatever the upcoming national and international strategies might be. Pathways for improvements are provided in line with current Welsh and UK energy efficiency schemes and targets. Information about each Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) is used to identify the suitability of schemes. The costs of the improvements, energy consumption reduction and SAP rating distribution improvements are calculated for each suitable scheme and target for each LSOA.
