Energy consumed for space heating is responsible for the majority of UK domestic energy consumption.
Thie information below is adapted from The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change's digest of Energy Statistics, 2011. This shows that, while solid fuel heating is now only about 2 to 3% of the UK market, its share has risen very significantly over the past few years. See: http://www.decc.gov.uk/en/content/cms/statistics/publications/ecuk/ecuk.aspx
Between 1970 and 2009 use of coal, coke and other solid fuels decreased by 96 per cent to 738 thousand tonnes of oil equivalent.
