In this chapter, issues relating to energy and carbon emissions in housing are discussed. The chapter starts by discussing issues of energy consumption in housing. This is followed by the energy policy and emissions targets issues. Following on, the chapter discusses the trends in housing energy and carbon emissions research with specific focus on the theoretical framework underpinning energy consumption and carbon emissions in housing. This includes some sociotechnical variables influencing energy and carbon emissions in housing. The chapter also reviews the literature relating to the method of modelling energy and carbon emissions in housing. This entails issues pertaining to the epistemic modelling approaches which are the top-down and bottom-up modelling techniques as well as their benefits and limitations. Additionally, the chapter reviews some notable models for energy and carbon emissions in the UK housing sector. A critique of these modelling approaches concludes the chapter.
