Annual electricity consumption statistics for Stroud and the Gloucestershire area are available for the years 2005 to 2008 and are shown in the following table. The statistics include both domestic and non-domestic consumption and, as they are supplied to DECC by electricity suppliers, they are therefore a measure of the electricity supplied from the national grid.

1 Gloucestershire is defined here as comprising of the following local authorities: Cheltenham, Cotswold, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud and Tewkesbury.

Similar data are also available for 2003 and 2004. However there are methodological differences in the production of the datasets before 2005 and therefore the data for 2003 and 2004 are not directly comparable with the later datasets. The changes in methodology were recognised as improvements and as such the statistics from 2005 are classified as National Statistics. Details of all methodologies used to compile the statistics can be found at:
