The 2022 Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Baseline Study report produced by SPR (the SPR report) provides a comprehensive, national scale representation of the non-residential building stock by type and energy consumption. This will be an important national resource to support applied buildings research, planning and policy development by government and industry.
Drawing together diverse sources the SPR Report provides a national scale representation of the non-residential building stock by type and energy consumption. It yields detailed statistics of value to researchers and policy advisers though limitations in sources mean caution should be used in replying on analysis.
Findings of Interest include:
- the total non-residential building stock count is larger than previously understood, comprising approximately 1,000,000 energy-consuming non-residential buildings at the end of FY2020
- commercial buildings account for approximately 24% of national electricity consumption and approximately 10% of national greenhouse gas production.
