Energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions in the Solent Region

SERG researchers have produced a set of maps of domestic carbon emissions for the Solent region which are available to browse online, using MangoMap. The maps are based on data released by DECC and ONS. the maps will be updated periodically when new data becomes available

The maps currently include the following variables for the Solent region in 2011:

  • Domestic electricity and gas consumption per capita per year,
  • Population
  • Total domestic CO₂ emissions per capita per year

The energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions were calculated based on medium super output areas (MSOA), where each small area has a population around 10000 and 4000 households. The CO₂ emissions were calculated according to the domestic electricity and gas consumption of each area in 2011.
