U.S. Energy-Related Carbon Dioxide Emissions, 2010, U.S. Energy Information Administration (Aug. 18, 2011). This document provides an analysis of the level and drivers of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions in 2010. The analysis indicates a rebound in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2010 following a historic decline in 2009, although CO2 emissions remain 6 percent below 2005 levels.
Trends in Renewable Energy Consumption and Electricity 2009, U.S. Energy Information Administration (March 31, 2011). The latest in a series of annual reports on renewable energy and electricity consumption cites strong growth in the use of renewable fuels in 2009, despite an economic recession and a significant decline in overall U.S. energy demand/consumption over the last two years. Additional information including links to past reports is available on the EIA’s Renewable & Alternative Fuels website.
Annual Energy Outlook 2010, U.S. Energy Information Administration (May 2010). This report provides a projection and analysis of U.S. energy supply, demand, and prices through 2035. The projections are based on results from EIA’s National Energy Modeling System. The 2010 report addresses alternative scenarios for oil prices, economic growth, and the uptake of more energy-efficient technologies and includes cases examining the impact of changes in selected policies. Prior editions of the Annual Energy Outlook are also available.
Household Vehicles Energy Use -- Latest Data & Trends, U.S. Energy Information Administration (2005). This report presents consumer-based data on household vehicles and expenditures derived from the U.S. Department of Transportation's 2001 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS), independent estimates of vehicle miles per gallon and fuel prices, and other data sources. The report focuses on several intensities of use for travel: number and type of vehicles per household; annual miles per household and per vehicle; gallons of fuel consumed and type of fuel used; prices paid for fuel and total expenditures; and fuel economy.
Transportation Energy Consumption Surveys, U.S. Energy Information Administration. This website provides information on energy consumption surveys of the transportation sector conducted by EIA, including surveys of household vehicles, alternative fuel use, and special topics.
Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center, Department of Energy. This website, sponsored by DOE’s Clean Cities initiative, offers information and resources to assist consumers and fleets with reducing their petroleum consumption through advanced transportation technologies. The website includes a collection of tools, database searches, calculators, interactive maps, and other resources on alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, fuel blends, idle reduction, and fuel economy.
Fuel Economy Guide. This website, maintained jointly by the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, provides consumers with fuel economy estimates for passenger cars and trucks, energy and environmental impact ratings, fuel-saving tips, and other useful information.
State Energy Program, Department of Energy. This program provides financial and technical assistance grants to assist states with developing strategies and goals to address their energy efficiency and renewable energy priorities. The State Energy Program (SEP) website includes an overview, program guidance, goals and metrics, and links to federal regulations and guidance.
Transportation Energy Data Book, Edition 31, DOE, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (July 31, 2012). This publication is DOE’s annual compendium of statistical data and information that characterizes transportation activity and other factors that influence transportation energy use.
