The April 2017 Monthly Energy Review (MER), EIA's primary report of recent and historical energy statistics, was released on April 25, 2017. Preliminary estimates indicate that for January 2017:
U.S. renewable energy consumption totaled 896 trillion Btu, which represented 10% of U.S. total primary energy consumption.
Biomass accounted for 44% of U.S. renewable energy consumption, hydroelectric power 29%, wind energy 21%, solar energy 4%, and geothermal energy 2%.
As a share of U.S. primary energy consumption, renewable energy consumption accounted for 16% in the electric power sector, 11% in the industrial sector, 5% in the transportation sector, 4% in the residential sector, and 3% in the commercial sector.
The MER provides monthly and annual data on total energy production, consumption, stocks, trade, prices, and emissions; overviews of U.S. petroleum, natural gas, coal, electricity, nuclear energy, renewable energy, and carbon dioxide emissions, as well as international petroleum; and data unit conversions. See What’s New in the MER for a record of changes.
