Renewable Energy: United States

This report forecasts to 2024 US renewable energy consumption and production in British thermal units (Btu). Total consumption is segmented by resource in terms of: wood and waste biomass, hydropower, biofuels, wind, solar, and geothermal. Total consumption is also segmented by market as follows: electric power, industrial, transport, residential, and commercial.

To illustrate historical trends, total consumption, total production, and the various segments are provided in annual series from 2009 to 2019.

For the purposes of this report, energy is measured in terms of primary energy. As defined by the US Energy Information Administration, primary energy is the form of energy first accounted for before any conversion to secondary or tertiary forms of energy. To avoid double-counting, market totals represent primary energy consumption only. For example, the electric power market represents the consumption of energy (e.g., hydropower, wind) to produce electricity, but retail sales of that electricity to the other markets (e.g., industrial, residential) are excluded from market totals.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
