62. Energy intensity in the residential sector measures the amount of energy required per household. Therefore, if energy intensity falls this means that on average households are using less energy.
63. Emissions intensity in the residential sector measures the amount of emissions per household. Therefore, if emissions intensity falls this means that on average households are emitting fewer emissions.
64. Energy productivity in the non-domestic sector measures the level of economic activity for each unit of energy being used. Higher energy productivity means more economic activity for each unit of energy being used.
65. Emissions intensity in the non-domestic sector measures the amount of emissions per unit of output. Therefore, if emissions intensity falls this means that fewer emissions are emitted per unit of output.
