Primary Energy Consumption by Source and Sector diagram image

Footnotes:
1 Does not include biofuels that have been blended with petroleum—biofuels are included in “Renewable Energy."
2 Excludes supplemental gaseous fuels.
3 Includes less than 0.1 quadrillion Btu of coal coke net exports.
4 Conventional hydroelectric power, geothermal, solar/PV, wind, and biomass.
5 Includes industrial combined-heat-and-power (CHP) and industrial electricity-only plants.
6 Includes commercial combined-heat-and-power (CHP) and commercial electricity-only plants.
7 Electricity-only and combined-heat-and-power (CHP) plants whose primary business is to sell electricity, or electricity and heat, to the public. Includes 0.1 quadrillion Btu of electricity net imports not shown under "Source."

Notes:
Primary energy in the form that it is first accounted for in a statistical energy balance, before any transformation to secondary or tertiary forms of energy (for example, coal is used to generate electricity).  • Sum of components may not equal total due to independent rounding.

Changes to the AER

  • Tables with grayed-out numbers go to the MER (the most recent data). The remaining tables still go to the AER 2011 (data through 2011). In some cases the table numbering of the AER differs from that of the MER.
  • Explanatory notes for the most recent AER can be found in archived AER 2011 (data year dropdown above). MER notes and sources are linked at the bottom of the interactive tables.
  • See a full list of content changes to all AER reports by year. >
