Spark and dark spreads indicate profitability of natural gas, coal power plants

Oct 13, 2017
Relative profits for some natural gas- and coal-fired generators in several Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic states may have decreased since 2016 because of higher natural gas and coal prices and lower wholesale electricity prices. A common measure of profitability for power plants within a region is the difference between their input fuel costs, such as the cost of coal or natural gas, and their wholesale power price

Energy-related carbon dioxide emissions expected to fall in 2017 but rise in 2018

Winter heating costs likely to be higher this winter than last winter

Oct 11, 2017
Most U.S. households can expect higher heating expenditures this winter (October through March) than the last two winters according to EIA's Winter Fuels Outlook, which will be released at 11:00 a.m. today. Higher expected winter heating expenditures are the result of more heating demand because of relatively colder weather and, to a lesser extent, higher fuel prices.

Short-Term Energy Outlook

Oct 11, 2017
EIA forecasts that average household expenditures for all major home heating fuels will rise this winter because of expected colder weather and higher energy costs. Average increases vary by fuel, with natural gas expenditures forecast to rise by 12%, home heating oil by 17%, electricity by 8%, and propane by 18%. Most of the increase reflects expected colder weather rather than higher energy costs. A warmer-than-forecast winter would see lower increases in expenditures, and a colder-than-forecast winter would see higher increases in expenditures (Winter Fuels Outlook).

Energy-related carbon dioxide emissions have declined in 6 of the past 10 years. This analysis is based on data in the August 2017 Monthly Energy Review.
