State Energy Data Release- July 24, 2015
Complete set of state-level estimates of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures through 2013
The State Energy Data System (SEDS) provides a complete set of annual state-level estimates of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures by energy source and sector through 2013. Production and consumption estimates are available in physical units and British thermal units (Btu) from 1960 through 2013. Price and expenditure estimates, in dollars per million Btu and millions of dollars, respectively, are available from 1970 through 2013. Data highlights for 2013 include the following:
- U.S. total energy consumption was 97 quadrillion Btu, and U.S. energy production totaled 82 quadrillion Btu. Both totals were 3% higher in 2013 than in 2012.
- Texas was the top energy-consuming state, using 13 quadrillion Btu, followed by California (8 quadrillion Btu) and Florida (4 quadrillion Btu). The top energy-producing states were Texas (16 quadrillion Btu), Wyoming (9 quadrillion Btu), and Pennsylvania (6 quadrillion Btu).
- Of the 97 quadrillion Btu of energy consumed by the United States in 2013, petroleum (excluding fuel ethanol) accounted for 36%. Of the other major energy sources, natural gas accounted for 28%, coal accounted for 19%, renewable energy (including fuel ethanol) accounted for 9%, and nuclear electric power accounted for 8%.
- The industrial sector accounted for 32% of total energy consumption, the transportation sector for 27%, the residential sector for 22%, and the commercial sector for 18%. Texas and California were the top two energy-consuming states in the residential, commercial, and transportation sectors. In the industrial sector, Texas ranked first, Louisiana second, and California third.
- Total energy consumption per capita ranged from a low of 184 million Btu per person in Rhode Island to a high of 918 million Btu per person in Wyoming.
- Texas produced more natural gas and crude oil than any other state (9 quadrillion Btu and 5 quadrillion Btu, respectively). Wyoming produced the most coal (7 quadrillion Btu). Illinois generated the most nuclear electric power (1 quadrillion Btu). Washington produced the most energy from all renewable sources (0.9 quadrillion Btu).
The State Energy Data System (SEDS) provides annual state-level estimates of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures by sector and energy source. See Data and Methodology Changes for a record of changes to the publication.
