Monthly Energy Review June 2015 release
Summary data on energy production, consumption, stocks, trade, prices, and emissions
The June 2015 Monthly Energy Review (MER), EIA's primary report of recent and historical energy statistics, was released on June 25, 2015. Preliminary estimates indicate that for March 2015:
- Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from U.S. consumption of energy (excluding biomass) totaled 456 million metric tons. Of this total, petroleum accounted for 43%, natural gas for 31%, and coal for 26%.
- The transportation sector accounted for 35% of total CO2 emissions from energy consumption, with 97% of the sector’s emissions attributable to petroleum; the industrial sector accounted for 27% of total emissions.
- The commercial and residential sectors combined to account for 39% of all CO2 emissions from energy consumption. Nearly 63% of energy-related CO2 emissions from the residential and commercial sectors combined was attributable to retail electricity. (Emissions from energy consumption in the electric power sector are allocated to each sector in proportion to its share of retail sales.)
The MER provides monthly and annual data on total energy production, consumption, and trade; energy prices; overviews of petroleum, natural gas, coal, electricity, nuclear energy, renewable energy, and international petroleum; carbon dioxide emissions; and data unit conversions. As of December 2013, the MER includes pre-1973 historical data for approximately 70 data tables previously published in EIA’s Annual Energy Review. See What’s New in the MER for a record of changes.
