Quick Facts

  • Indiana is the fifth-largest ethanol producer in the nation. Its ethanol plants can produce 1.2 billion gallons of fuel ethanol per year, about 7% of the nation’s total.
  • In 2018, Indiana ranked seventh among the states in coal production and second in coal consumption, after Texas. In 2019, coal fueled 59% of Indiana's electricity net generation.
  • The industrial sector is the largest end-use energy consuming sector and accounts for almost half the energy used in Indiana. The state has several energy-intensive industries, including chemical manufacturing, steelmaking, food production and processing, and crude oil refining. 
  • Indiana's Whiting refinery, which can process about 430,000 barrels of crude oil per calendar day, is the largest inland oil refinery in the nation. Only five U.S. refineries (three in Texas and two in Louisiana) can process more crude oil.
  • Wind power provided 6% of Indiana’s electricity generation in 2019, while solar, biomass, and  hydropower combined accounted for slightly more than 1% of generation.
