Monthly power sector carbon dioxide emissions reach 27-year low in April

August 5, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Note: Data exclude emissions from biomass energy consumption. The electric power sector emitted 128 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (MMmt CO2) in April 2015, the lowest for any month since April 1988, according to the most recent estimates in EIA’s . In any year, April is […]

Proposed Clean Power Plan rule cuts power sector CO2 emissions to lowest level since 1980s

May 26, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, In June 2014, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule to regulate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing power plants under section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act. EIA’s newly released analysis of the proposed rule shows power sector CO2 emissions falling to about 1,500 […]

U.S. power sector CO2 emissions expected to increase through 2040

May 15, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Annual Energy Outlook 2015 Although U.S. carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with electricity generation have fallen from the 2005 level, they are projected to increase in the coming decades, based on analysis in EIA’s (AEO2015) that reflects current laws and regulations, and therefore does not include proposed […]

U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide emissions increase in past two years

April 20, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, For the second year in a row, energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the United States have increased. However, unlike 2013, when emissions and gross domestic product (GDP) grew at similar rates (2.5% and 2.2%, respectively), 2014’s CO2 emissions growth rate of 0.7% was much smaller than […]

California and Quebec complete second joint carbon dioxide emissions allowance auction

March 11, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, based on California’s Air Resources Board: California and Quebec have announced the completion of their . Despite geographical distance and economic differences, California and Quebec have worked to align their CO2 emissions markets and policies. Previous auctions sold emissions allowances for electric generators and large industrial sources. […]

Colder weather drives forecast of 2014 energy-related CO2 emissions 1.1% above 2013 level

October 30, 2014 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, (October 2014) In the long term, energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are driven by economic and efficiency trends and changes in the fuel mix. But weather fluctuations, which drive the level of energy use for both heating and cooling, are a very significant factor affecting year-to-year variation […]

Weather-driven energy intensity increase led to higher energy-related emissions in 2013

October 22, 2014 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Annual CO2 Analysis; Census Bureau; Bureau of Economic AnalysisNote: Growth rates reflect annual changes. U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions increased in 2013 by 129 million metric tons (2.5%), the largest increase since 2010 and the fourth-largest increase since 1990. Emissions trends reflect a combination of economic […]

Recent trends in energy-related CO2 emissions vary across regions and states

June 3, 2014 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, State Energy Data System (SEDS) 2014 U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2013 were 10% below the benchmark year of 2005. Emissions in 2013 were roughly 2% above their 2012 level and 1.5% below their 2011 level, when emissions were 8.6% below the 2005 level. Recently […]
