The report, Renewable Energy Trends in Consumption and Electricity, 2007, provides an overview and tables with historical data spanning as far back as 1989 through 2007 on renewable energy consumption and electricity.

Consumption[back to top]

Total renewable energy consumption decreased by a modest 96 trillion British Thermal Units (Btu) or 1 percent between 2006 and 2007 to a total of 6,813 trillion Btu (Table 1.1). Gains in biofuels and wind energy consumption were offset by losses in hydroelectric power. Over the same period total U.S. energy consumption increased by 1,702 trillion Btu or 2 percent. Increases in natural gas consumption for the residential and electric power sectors led the U.S. trend in non-renewable energy. As a result, renewable energy consumption hovered at 7 percent of the U.S. total (Figure 1.1).
