Review of Typical Consumption Figures – Decision Paper

The CER has today 21st of March 2017, published a decision paper concerning typical domestic consumption values for electricity and gas customers. This decision paper updates  the recommended typical annual consumption figure for electricity to 4,200 kWh and the typical annual consumption for gas to 11,000 kWh. Both these figures represent a decrease over previous typical consumption figures.  
The CER will begin to use these figures in all of its materials from the publication date of this paper. An obligation is now being placed on CER accredited price comparison web sites and relevant industry stakeholders including suppliers, to update the common industry figures to the revised figures by 1st of August 2017 at the latest.  The CER will engage with Price Comparison Websites regarding further work to make information about consumption values for different meter types in electricity and different house types in gas available to consumers.
