State Profile and Energy Estimates

Changes to the State Energy Data System (SEDS) Notice: In October 2023, we updated the way we calculate primary energy consumption of electricity generation from noncombustible renewable energy sources (solar, wind, hydroelectric, and geothermal). Visit our Changes to 1960—2022 conversion factor for renewable energy page to learn more.

aIncludes utility-scale solar thermal and photovoltaic (PV). Excludes small-scale solar. Note: Data are for utility-scale facilities (>1 megawatt capacity) in all sectors including electric utilities,
independent power producers, commercial plants, and industrial plants at the end of year. For plants that use
multiple sources of energy, capacity is assigned to the energy source reported as the predominant one.
bIncludes chemicals, hydrogen, pitch, purchased steam, sulfur, miscellaneous technologies, flywheels, and
non-renewable waste (municipal solid waste from non-biogenic sources, and tire-derived fuels), which are not
separately shown.
