Questions/comments: Electricity data experts

Changes in Electric Power Annual (EPA) 2013


  • Beginning in 2013 Form EIA-861, "Annual Electric Power Industry Report" stopped collecting green pricing data. As a result Table 2.14. Green Pricing Customers by End Use Sector only publishes historical data prior to 2013.
  • Beginning in 2013 environmental data was collected at a more detailed level in Form EIA-860, "Annual Electric Generator Report." As a result the accuracy of environmental equipment counts and associated capacity in Table 9.2. Quantity and Net Summer Capacity of Operable Environmental Equipment has increased. Historical numbers have been revised to incorporate the more detailed reporting of environmental equipment.
  • Table 9.3. Quantity and Net Summer Capacity of Operable Cooling Systems, by Energy Source and Cooling System Type has been updated to correct the classification of some cooling systems that were misclassified in prior publications.
  • Table 9.4. Average Costs of Existing Flue Gas Desulfurization Units is being revised to provide more useful measures for the cost of Flue Gas Desulfurization Units. A review of the underlying data revealed that commercial and industrial facilities have significantly different costs than units used in the electric power sector. In order to give a more accurate reflection of the electric power sector, commercial and industrial facilities are being excluded from table 9.4 this year. In addition previous versions of Table 9.4 reported the average installation cost of all units that were operating during a given year. In order to portray a more accurate understanding of how installation costs have changed over time, table 9.4 now reports the average installation cost of units that began operation during the specified year.
  • Demand-Side Management Tables 10.1. - 10.5. are being discontinued and replaced by tables 10.6. - 10.9.
    • Demand-Side Management Tables 10.1. - 10.5. continue to publish historical data prior to 2013
    • 2013 demand-side management data is now published in Energy Efficiency Tables 10.6 & 10.7 and Demand Response Tables 10.8 & 10 .9.
    • Last year's Table 10.6. Advanced Metering Count by Technology Type has been renumbered to be Table 10.10.
  • In 2013, EIA revised its approach to estimating imports from Mexico shown in Table 2.13. Electric Power Industry - U.S. Electricity Imports from and Electricity Exports to Canada.
  • At the time of publication the following Tables were not available. They will be published in April 2015:
    • Table 4.8. Capacity Factors for Utility Scale
    • Table 8.3. Revenue and Expense Statistics for Major U.S. Investor-Owned Electric Utilities
    • Table 8.4. Average Power Plant Operating Expenses for Major U.S. Investor-Owned Electric Utilities
