Energy and Climate Change Public Attitudes Tracker

The findings from the 20th quarterly wave of BEIS’s Energy and Climate Change Public Attitudes Tracker (PAT) have been published.

The report presents summary headline findings from December 2016 and makes comparisons primarily with data from the previous quarter and with data from Wave 16 which was conducted the same time last year. The 20th wave of the data was collected from a representative sample of 2,138 households in the UK.

The topics that are examined in the report are: energy bills, energy suppliers and switching, energy saving and wasting, renewable energy, nuclear energy, radioactive waste, shale gas and renewable heat. The excel summary tables and dataset can be accessed to see full responses to all survey questions, these can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/energy-and-climate-change-public-attitudes-tracker-wave-20

Context:

In March 2012 the Department of Energy and Climate Change launched a tracking survey to understand and monitor public attitudes to the department’s main business priorities. On 14th July 2016, the Department of Energy and Climate Change merged with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, to form the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. As such, the survey is now BEIS’s Energy and Climate Change Public Attitudes Tracker. The survey runs 4 times a year. A subset of questions is asked quarterly with the other questions asked annually. Data are collected via an omnibus survey using face-to-face in-home interviews with households in the UK.
