Projected electric capacity additions are below recent historical levels

May 11, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Annual Energy Outlook 2015 Reference Case and Annual Electric Generator Report ()Note: Other includes hydropower, geothermal, biomass, municipal solid waste, and other gaseous fuels used in end-use sectors. In the coming decades, additions to U.S. electricity generation capacity are expected to be lower than in the recent […]

Natural gas, renewables projected to provide larger shares of electricity generation

May 4, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Republished 1:15 p.m. May 4, 2015 to correct an error in the graph. EIA’s (AEO2015) Reference case projects that electricity consumption will increase at an average annual rate of 0.8% from 2013 to 2040, nearly in line with expected population growth. Continuing a recent trend toward lower […]

Falling rig counts drive projected near-term oil production decline in 3 key U.S. regions

March 17, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Republished March 17, 2015, 10:00 a.m., text was modified to clarify content. EIA’s most recent . The DPR estimates, which were issued on March 9 and cover the months of March and April, include the first projected declines in crude oil production in these regions since publication […]

Reasons for projected natural gas-fired generation growth vary by region

August 15, 2014 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Reference case Note: Values for the Northeast Power Coordinating Committee, Midwest Reliability Organization, and Western Electricity Coordinating Council regions account only for the portions of these regions within the United States. Totals exclude electric generation in the end-use sector, which is largely onsite industrial generation. WECC is […]

Oil prices drive projected enhanced oil recovery using carbon dioxide

July 30, 2014 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Annual Energy Outlook 2014 In the (AEO2014), EIA projects that the price of oil will largely determine whether to use carbon dioxide (CO2) enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technologies to extract additional crude oil from existing producing fields. The injection of CO2 gas into oil reservoirs at high […]

Light-duty vehicles’ share of transportation energy use is projected to fall

July 18, 2014 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Annual Energy Outlook 2014 Transportation energy consumption, including energy demand from light-duty vehicles, heavy-duty vehicles, aircraft, marine vessels, rail, and other sources, reached 13.8 million barrels per day oil equivalent (boe/d) in 2012 (28% of all energy consumption in the United States), down from a peak of […]

Projected growth in natural gas-fired generation is influenced by resource availability

June 13, 2014 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Note: All generation values are for net generation. Different scenarios of natural gas resource availability in the (AEO2014) Reference case, High Oil and Gas Resource case, and Low Oil and Gas Resource case affect the growth of natural gas-fired electric generation. As increasing amounts of natural gas […]
