Alex, I looked through the TFL APIs, documentation and datasets. The station list (KML) format indicates it has locations for light rail (DLR), tube and overground. But as you observed there are no entries for overground stations. I also did not find anything on National Rail in the documentation. I did find some additional resources. Below is the National ...

All open data are good, but some are better. In a colloquial way: open means that everyone can use it, for any purpose. The idea is that you have as few technical, financial and legal barriers as possible. Quite a popular definition is the one from the OKF: “A piece of data or content is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — ...

The Office for National Statistics website is going to be your friend here. The current Population Estimates Dataset includes (under 'Mid-2016 detailed time series') national and regional population estimates going back to 1838.

This is not a direct answer, but you could try to extrapolate the data using openstreetmap. As far as I know, the data contains also information about the usage of the building (housing, industrial). Based on the size and the usage you could estimate the energy use of the building. How it is done for the heat demand is described e.g. in this IEEE paper.
