    • In conjunction with data on Forms EIA-4 and EIA-20, EIA-1 data was used for supply forecasts and to inform the public, the industry, and the Government of aggregated coal consumption and inventories. Respondents would be a selected sample of manufacturing plants that consume coal for all uses other than coke production.
    • Frequency of Collection:Weekly when implemented
    • Number of Respondents:Standby form, number will be determined at time of use
    • Reporting Requirement:Mandatory
    • Legal Citation:Public Law 93-275 (Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974), Sec. 13(b), 5(a), 5(b), 52

    • For coal received during the quarter, origin, coal rank, type of purchase contract, quantity, transportation mode, quality (i.e., Btu, sulfur, and ash contents), and cost data are collected. For coal transformed during the quarter, data is collected based on transformation type: Gasification, Liquefaction, Refined Coal, Coking Coal. Facilities that consume in excess of 1,000 short tons of anthracite, bituminous, sub-bituminous coal or lignite are required to submit a quarterly survey. Data from the Form EIA-3 appear in EIA publications, such as the 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.For help in determining coal origins (counties) for the EIA-3 form in east Kentucky, west Kentucky, north West Virginia, and south West Virginia, see the following maps: East and West Kentucky map JPG format, North and South West Virginia map JPG format.

    Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS)
  • Collects comprehensive national and regional data on energy use in the residential sector of the economy. For the 2015 RECS, respondents completed the household questionnaire by one of three modes: a computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI), a self-administered paper questionnaire, or a self-administered web questionnaire. The CAPI and paper questionnaires are provided here. The content and presentation for the Web questionnaire was nearly identical to the paper version, although Web respondents were automatically skipped through questions that did not apply to them.

    • Data are used for analyzing and forecasting residential energy consumption. Housing, appliance, and demographic characteristics data are collected via personal interviews with households, and consumption and expenditure billing data are collected from the energy suppliers. End-use intensities are produced for space heating, water heating, air conditioning, refrigerators, and appliances. Rental agents are contacted by telephone to check on fuels used in rented units. Surveys were conducted in 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1984, 1987, 1990, 1993, 1997, 2001, 2005, and 2009. The next survey is scheduled for 2019.

    • 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. 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. Surveys were conducted in 1979, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1992, 1995, 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2012. The next CBECS is scheduled for 2017.

    • In 2008, EIA consolidated six data collection forms into two forms — the EIA-860 and EIA-923. This benefitted electricity generators because it reduced the number of forms they were required to submit. It benefitted EIA and taxpayers because it streamlined the collection process for better efficiency.
  • EIA-923Power Plant Operations Report
  • Collects information from regulated and unregulated electric power plants in the United States. Data collected include electric power generation, energy source consumption, end of reporting period fossil fuel stocks, as well as the quality and cost of fossil fuel receipts. Data are published for use by public and private analysts.

    • 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;
      3. Report information for years prior to the current reporting cycle year;
      4. Include information on activities conducted outside the United States; and
      5. Report on commitments to reduce future greenhouse gas emissions.

    • 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.
