    The social-psychological aspects of energy use in UK households have been
    reviewed. A major survey, which focused on identifying environmental attitudes
    and beliefs, energy-use hehaviour, ownership levels,for certain appliances and
    their utilisation patterns, was undertaken among householders resident in
    the south-east of England. The results indicute that members of the general
    public are (i) interested in receiving informution concerning household energy use
    and the associated environmental impuct, and (ii) willing to modify their
    hehaviour in order to reduce household energy consumption and environmental
    damage. Therefore, there is an urgent need to provide end-users
    with accurate energy-consumption und environmental-impact information.
    persuasively presented, to stimulute energy-rational and environmentally sustainable behaviour. For each major domestic electrical appliance, the
    survey data permit estimates of the variations in energy consumption per
    household and of the aggregate annual consumption nationally.
