GB postcodes off the mains gas grid

Off-gas GB postcodes, 2013

CSE has published a complete list of Great Britain postcodes that are not connected to the mains gas grid, up-to-date for 2013. We've also added the census area and the co-ordinates of the centre of each postcode on the list.

The households in these areas do not have access to mains gas for heating or cooking, and are likely to be reliant upon more expensive forms of heating.

NB There are 412,696 postcodes in this dataset. Please be aware that conversion to other file formats such as .xls may result in loss of data, because not all spreadsheets support a sufficient number of rows. After conversion, please check the number of records before you use the data.

This data was produced using Xoserve's list of off-gas postcodes, which was released late last year with little fanfare. Before this, off-gas postcode data had not been available for around 10 years. Xoserve's list is available to download here.

This report from DECC's Energy Trends special feature articles, December 2013, has more information about the Xoserve data. It also contains information about DECC's estimates of off-gas households at LSOA level and an analysis of characteristics of properties without gas meters.
