Quick Facts

  • Wyoming produces 13 times more energy than it consumes, and it is the second-biggest net energy supplier among the states, after Texas.
  • Wyoming has been the top coal-producing state since 1986, accounting for about two-fifths of all coal mined in the United States in 2020. The state holds nearly two-fifths of U.S. coal reserves at producing mines.
  • Wyoming was the eighth-largest crude oil-producing state in the nation in 2021, accounting for slightly more than 2% of U.S. total crude oil output. The state was the ninth-largest natural gas producer, and accounted for about 3% of U.S. marketed gas production.
  • Wyoming’s large energy-producing sector and small population help make the state have the highest per capita energy consumption and the second-most energy-intensive state economy, after Louisiana.
  • Wind power in Wyoming has more than doubled since 2019 and accounted for 19% of the state's electricity net generation in 2021. The amount of installed wind power-generating capacity in the state nearly doubled to just over 3,000 megawatts during 2020 and 2021.
