Research in spatial energy diversity using thermal images is an interesting and a useful notion, but further work is required to determinate whether it truly correspond to a dwelling's energy consumption. Nevertheless, the technique is a simple and potentially powerful one, provided the appropriate attributes are correctly weighted. We argue that such techniques may also in the future be used in conjunction with results from more rigorous modelling. In this paper the thermal images are used to show the possible association between land use and surface temperature and domestic energy consumption.
