“More than half” now commuting

Analysis of energy use patterns suggests more than half of all households could now be travelling to work again,

City AM quotes energy brand Bulb, about 54% of households are now commuting into work, up 13% from the beginning of January.

It says Bulb uses data from its smart meters to track when people are using the most energy in their homes and that according to the firm, those commuting to work can be distinguished by using more energy in the morning than at lunchtime.

Now, Bulb’s analysis suggests that there are more households for whom that is the case.

The City AM report adds that figures from Transport for London, 1m tube journeys were made last Friday, about a quarter of pre-pandemic levels, that’s about five times more journeys than were made at the start of the first lockdown last March.
