The Energy Efficiency Gap and Energy Price Responsiveness in Food Processing

Oct 22, 2020
This report estimates stochastic frontier energy demand functions with non-public, plant-level data from the U.S. Census Bureau to measure the energy efficiency gap and energy price elasticities in the food processing industry. Estimates of the energy efficiency gap are smaller but empirically more reasonable when using this new estimation methodology. Own-prices are generally inelastic with little evidence of fuel or electricity substitution.

Electric Power Annual 2019

Oct 21, 2020
The Electric Power Annual 2019 (EPA2019) report is now available with final data through 2019. The EPA2019 presents 11 years (2009–19) of national-level data on electricity generating capacity, electricity generation and useful thermal output, fuel receipts, consumption, and emissions. The EPA2019 discontinues Tables 8.5 through 8.13.B. Table 8.5, Revenue and Expense Statistics for U.S. Cooperative Borrower-Owned Electric Utilities, is dependent on non-EIA data that EIA has not been able to obtain since the 2010 data year. Tables 8.6.A–8.13.B, which focus on North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Assessment Area data, were dependent on Form EIA-411 data. EIA discontinued the EIA-411 data collection effective in March 2020. These data are, however, still being collected by NERC.

Short-Term Energy Outlook

Oct 6, 2020
EIA forecasts that average household expenditures for all major home heating fuels, except heating oil, will increase this winter largely because of higher expected energy consumption. Average increases vary by fuel. Compared with last winter, EIA forecasts natural gas expenditures will increase by 6%, electricity by 7%, and propane by 14%. Home heating oil expenditures in EIA’s forecast fall by 10%, driven primarily by a combination of low crude oil prices and high distillate fuel oil supplies heading into the winter. EIA generally expects more space heating demand this winter compared with last winter based on forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that indicate colder winter temperatures. U.S. average heating degree days in this forecast are 5% higher than last winter. In addition, EIA expects that ongoing 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) mitigation efforts and more people working and attending school at home will contribute to higher levels of home heating use this winter than in previous years (Winter Fuels Outlook).

India Country Analysis Brief

Sep 30, 2020
India was the third-largest energy consumer in the world after China and the United States in 2019, and despite having notable fossil fuel resources, the country has become increasingly dependent on energy imports. The country has moved away from traditional biomass and waste over the past several years as the availability of electricity connections spread for the residential and commercial sectors.

China Country Analysis Brief

Sep 30, 2020
China is the world's most populous country with a fast-growing economy that has led it to be the largest energy consumer and producer in the world. Rapidly increasing energy demand, especially for petroleum and other liquids and natural gas, has made China influential in world energy markets. Although a majority of China’s energy is from coal, the country is diversifying its energy portfolio to curtail heavy air pollution and use more cleaner burning fuels.

Utility-scale battery storage costs decreased nearly 70% between 2015 and 2018

U.S. average installed utility-scale battery storage cost
Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Annual Electric Generator Report
Note: Only includes capacity with available cost data. Puerto Rico is excluded.

The average energy capacity cost of utility-scale battery storage in the United States has rapidly decreased from $2,152 per kilowatthour (kWh) in 2015 to $625/kWh in 2018. Battery storage systems store electricity produced by generators or pulled directly from the electric power grid and redistribute the power later as needed. At the end of 2018, the United States had 869 megawatts (MW) of installed battery power capacity (the maximum amount of power a battery can provide at a given moment) and 1,236 megawatthours (MWh) of battery energy capacity (the total amount of energy that can be stored by a battery).
