STATE ENERGY DATA RELEASE—May 20, 2011

State-level estimates of consumption for non-combustible renewable energy through 2009

State Energy Data System (SEDS) estimates for noncombustible renewable energy, for data year 2009, are available at SEDS Updates.  Noncombustible renewables include hydroelectric power, geothermal energy, wind energy, and solar thermal and photovoltaic energy.  Data highlights include the following:
  • U.S. consumption of hydroelectric power totaled 2,669 trillion Btu in 2009, a 6% increase from 2008.  The top consuming States were Washington, Oregon, California, and New York.
  • U.S. consumption of geothermal energy totaled 200 trillion Btu in 2009, a 4% increase from 2008.  California, the largest consuming State, accounted for 64% of all geothermal energy consumed.
  • U.S. consumption of solar thermal and photovoltaic energy totaled 98 trillion Btu in 2009, a 10% increase from 2008.  California and Florida accounted for 71% of all solar energy consumed.
  • U.S. consumption of wind energy totaled 721 trillion Btu in 2009, a 32% increase from 2008.  Texas, the largest consuming State, accounted for 27% of all wind energy consumed.
SEDS provides annual State-level estimates of energy consumption, prices, and expenditures by sector and energy source.  A full set of State-level estimates for all fuels, all sectors, and all years through data year 2009 will be released by the end of June 2011.
