Unit consumption for households can be expressed in energy consumed per dwelling (toe/dw) or energy consumed per floor area (koe/m2). The floor area per dwelling for EU27 is extrapolated from the weighted average floor area of dwellings of 19 countries (9 EU-15 countries and 10 new members) which represent around 85% of the total EU stock of dwellings; the weighting factor is the stock of dwellings.

Additional information

The change in energy use per dwelling for space heating (measured in %/year) is decomposed into a change in floor area and a change in specific energy use per m2.

Due to the fact that the average dwelling size increases , the energy consumption per dwelling decreased less (1,1%/year) than consumption per m2 (1,5%/year) in the EU-27.
