Verisk provides valuable insights to inform a range of decisions such as targeting customers for renewable energy incentives or developing strategies for improving housing stock. Verisk has a wealth of experience supplying land and property data to financial, property management, commercial, and research organisations working in these areas.

Our unique, comprehensive national database allows you to access information about individual houses and buildings or entire property portfolios, or to analyse large areas.

The dataset has been used extensively to facilitate the delivery of energy efficiency measures for residential and commercial buildings in both local and national government projects. For instance, it has informed models that predict long-term energy use across local authorities and has been a vital quantitative input to the Scotland Heat Map.

Verisk’s property data can enable organisations to understand potential financial impacts of energy efficiency legislation, identify and assess potential opportunities for retrofitting, and maximise conversion rates for these measures.
