Main heating fuel
EPCs indicate that half of non-domestic premises use electricity as their main heating fuel. Approximately 17,000 more non-domestic premises rely on electricity as their main heating fuel than rely on natural gas. However, the choice of heating fuel can vary depending on building type. For example, the retail and financial category contains around 32,000 more premises reliant on electricity than on natural gas. The most common heating fuel in all other categories except for storage and distribution and restaurants, cafés and takeaways is natural gas.
