Form EIA-860 detailed data
  with previous form data (EIA-860A/860B)                                        

Release Date: June 17, 2016 Early Release 2015 data
Next Release Date: October 2016

 

The survey Form EIA-860 collects generator-level specific information about existing and planned generators and associated environmental equipment at electric power plants with 1 megawatt or greater of combined nameplate capacity. Summary level data can be found in the Electric Power Annual.

Detailed data are compressed (zip) and contain the following files:

  • LayoutYyyyy– Provides a directory of all (published) data elements collected on the Form EIA-860 together with the related description, specific file location(s), and, where appropriate, an explanation of codes.
  • 1___UtilityYyyyy - Contains utility-level data for the plants and generators surveyed in the reporting year.
  • 2___PlantYyyyy - Contains plant-level data for the generators surveyed in all available years.
  • 3_1_GeneratorYyyyy – Contains generator-level data for the surveyed generators, split into three tabs.
    • The "Operable" tab includes those generators which are currently operating, out of service or on standby;
    • The "Proposed" tab includes those generators which are planned and not yet in operation; and
    • The "Retired and Canceled" tab includes those generators which were cancelled prior to completion and operation and retired generators at existing plants.
  • 3_2_WindYyyyy – Contains additional details for surveyed generators that use wind as an energy source, split into two tabs:
    • The "Operable" tab includes those generators which are currently operating, out of service or on standby; and
    • The "Retired and Canceled" tab includes those generators which were cancelled prior to completion and operation and retired generators at existing plants.
  • 3_3_SolarYyyyy - Contains additional details for surveyed generators that use solar as an energy source, split into two tabs:
    • The "Operable" tab includes those generators which are currently operating, out of service or on standby;
    • The "Retired and Canceled" tab includes those generators which were cancelled prior to completion and operation and retired generators at existing plants.
  • 3_4_MultiFuelYyyyy – Contains data on fuel-switching and the use of multiple fuels by surveyed generators, split into three tabs:
    • The "Operable" tab includes those generators which are currently operating, out of service or on standby; and
    • The "Proposed" tab includes those generators which are planned and not yet in operation; and
    • The "Retired and Canceled" tab includes those generators which were cancelled prior to completion and operation and retired generators at existing plants.
  • 4___OwnerYyyyy – Contains owner and/or operator data for generators with shared ownership and generators that are wholly-owned by an entity other than the operator (generators not appearing in the file are wholly-owned by their operator).
  • 6_1_EnviroAssocYyyyy – Contains boiler association data for the environmental equipment data collected on the Form EIA-860.
    • The "Boiler Generator" identifies which boilers are associated with each generator;
    • The "Boiler Cooling" tab shows which cooling systems are associated with each boiler;
    • The "Boiler Particulate Matter" tab shows which flue gas particulate (FGP) collectors are associated with each boiler;
    • The "Boiler SO2" tab shows which flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems are associated with each boiler
    • The "Boiler NOx" tab shows which nitrogen oxide control equipment is associated with each boiler;
    • The "Boiler Mercury" tab shows which mercury control equipment is associated with each boiler
    • The "Boiler Stack Flue" tab shows which stacks and flues are associated with each boiler; and
    • The “Emissions Control Equipment” tab shows the operational status, in-service date, and installation costs of all the environmental equipment.
  • 6_2_EnviroEquipYyyyy – Contains environmental equipment data for the surveyed generators.
    • The "Emission Standards & Strategies" tab shows boiler data as collected on Schedule 6, Part B of the Form EIA-860;
    • The "Boiler Info & Design Parameters" tab shows boiler data as collected on Schedule 6, Part C;
    • The "Cooling" tab shows cooling system data as collected on Schedule 6, Part D;
    • The "FGP" tab shows FGP data as collected on Schedule 6, Part E;
    • The "FGD" tab shows FGD data as collected on Schedule 6, Part F; and
    • The "StackFlue" tab shows stack and flue data as collected on Schedule 6, Part G.
