EIA statement on the Hourly Electric Grid Monitor

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has resumed publishing data on the Hourly Electric Grid Monitor. The Hourly Electric Grid Monitor provides near-real-time national and regional data on electricity demand, generation, and fuel sources.

The Hourly Electric Grid Monitor had been offline following a hardware failure that affected our servers. Some balancing authorities are missing data for June 15–30, but we will restore that data over the next few days as respondents resubmit it. We are also working to resume publishing estimates of national hourly carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation as well as the balancing authority and regional xlsx web files.

Data are accessible through the Hourly Electric Grid Monitor dashboard and available for download as six-month CSV files. Users can also access the data through our API.

We continue to work to resume our regular data publication schedule, including publishing our Prime Supplier Report and portions of the Petroleum Marketing Monthly, which are still delayed. We will post updates on our website and our Twitter account when new information is available.

This statement was prepared by EIA, the statistical and analytical agency within the U.S. Department of Energy. By law, EIA’s data, analysis, and forecasts are independent of approval by any other officer or employee of the U.S. government. The views in this statement therefore should not be construed as representing those of the U.S. Department of Energy or other federal agencies.
