For coal received during the quarter, information is collected on origin, quantity, transportation mode, quality (i.e., Btu, sulfur, and ash contents), and cost. For coal transformed during the quarter, information is collected on Schedules G (gasification), L (liquefaction), R (coal refining) and Schedule S (synfuel). Respondents consume an excess of 1,000 short tons of anthracite, bituminous, sub-bituminous coal or lignite for uses other than coke production during the year. Data from the Form EIA-3 appear in the EIA publications, Quarterly Coal Report, Monthly Energy Review, Annual Energy Review, and the Annual Coal Report. In addition, the EIA uses the data for coal supply analyses and short-term modeling.

EIA-871A/I Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey

The survey provides comprehensive national and regional information on the consumption of, and expenditures for, energy in the commercial buildings sector of the economy as well as the number and square footage of U.S. commercial buildings by various energy-related building characteristics.

[+] See more

Data are used in EIA forecasting and energy end use intensity models and are published in statistical and analytical reports. The physical characteristics information for commercial buildings is collected using Form EIA-871A in interviews with owners, managers, or tenants of buildings. The building respondents are also asked to provide energy consumption and expenditures information, if available. The building respondents complete Worksheets EIA-871G and H prior to the interviews. Respondents at hospitals and university/college complexes also complete Form EIA-871I to summarize their operations. In cases where the building respondent is unable to provide energy consumption and expenditure data, the information is collected by mail from individual energy suppliers by using Forms EIA-871C through F (depending upon the energy source). The survey was renamed CBECS in 1989. Previously it was conducted under the name of Nonresidential Buildings Energy Consumption Survey.

EIA-930 Hourly and Daily Balancing Authority Operations Report

Balancing authorities provide basic hourly operating data (system demand, generation, and interchange) on either an hourly (demand) or daily (all) basis.

Instructions

[+] See more

The data to be collected are:

  • Hourly demand
  • Hourly next-day demand forecast
  • Hourly net generation
  • Hourly total net actual interchange
  • Hourly net actual interchange with each interconnected Balancing Authority

The survey uses a electronic and automated data collection method. Each Balancing Authority will post the data on a web site. At the BA's discretion this can be a public web site or a web site to which only EIA has access. In either case EIA scans the web sites to download the data postings. There is no survey data form in a traditional sense.

There are two types of required data postings each day:

  • Respondents post hourly demand data within sixty minutes of the end of the reported hour.
  • Respondents also post separately the prior day's hourly demand, demand forecast, net generation and total net actual interchange, and net actual interchange data with each interconnected Balancing Authority from two days prior, by 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

An entity can report (on a purely voluntary basis) if they initiate, control, or in some other way, participate in a domestic or foreign activity that results in the emissions of greenhouse gases, reductions (or expected reductions) in emissions of greenhouse gases, or increases in carbon sequestration. A reporter must also be a legal U.S. person; i.e., a U.S. citizen or resident alien; a company; organization; or group recognized by U.S. law; or a Federal, State, or local government agency. The Form EIA-1605 can be used by reporters who wish to:

1. Create an in-depth public record of their emission reduction efforts that will be more useful for
information exchange purposes;
2. Report emissions, reductions, or sequestration for their entire organization;

FE-746R Import and Export of Natural Gas

Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act of 1938, as amended, requires anyone who wants to import or export natural gas from or to a foreign country must first obtain an authorization from the Department of Energy.

[+] See more

There are two types of authorizations, blanket and long-term authorizations. The blanket authorization enables importing or exporting on a short-term or spot market basis for a period of two years. Under this type of authorization, an entity is authorized to import and/or export natural gas for itself or act as a marketing agent for a third party. The entity is not obligated to import or export natural gas when it gets a blanket authorization and contracts are not required to be filed with the application. The long-term authorization is used when an entity has, or intends to have, a signed gas purchase or sales agreement/contract for a period of time longer than two years. Within 30 days following the end of each month, basic information on the monthly imports/exports must be reported to DOE. Within 30 days following the end of each calendar quarter, importers and exporters must file more detailed reports describing import/export activity for the quarter. Data are made available by DOE's Office of Fossil Energy and are also used by EIA for publications.
