National Household Model

The National Household Model (NHM) is delivered by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). It was developed on behalf of BEIS by the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) as an open-source tool for projecting the effects of policy and other legislative changes on the energy and emissions of the UK domestic housing stock by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). In order to be able to set up scenarios model users need to learn a specialist scenario language based on S-expressions (such as those used in the Lisp language) using the instruction manual found on the BEIS GitHub site. This will allow them to run the model which acts on the data in the various UK housing surveys. UK Data Archive stores the datasets for this model on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). Users need to register at UK Data Archive in order to access the raw data and run a conversion program to create a full dataset. The NHM team encourages feedback on all aspects of the model and documentation.
