A treasure trove of American energy facts and figures

Check out the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s interactive map

How many wind farms in the state of Iowa? Which region of the U.S. has greater geothermal potential, the Rockies or the Appalachians? Who spends more on energy per capita, Louisiana or Alaska?

You might have never considered these questions, but the U.S. Energy Information Administration has the answers—and there’s plenty more where that came from.

The U.S. EIA’s energy mapping system puts a vast amount of energy information at your fingertips. This incredible interactive tool takes the latest U.S. energy figures and applies them to a multi-layered map, a ranking system for energy production and consumption, and state-by-state comparisons.

The EIA’s interactive map, in particular, is a treasure trove of data, with layers offering details on all manner of American energy infrastructure, including:

  • Oil and gas wells and platforms;
  • Hydroelectric power plants;
  • Solar farms;
  • Crude oil, natural gas and petroleum product pipelines;
  • Onshore and offshore wind potential; and
  • Solid biomass resources.

Ready for some energy-based quick facts? The EIA’s profiles and energy estimates have those too . . . for all 50 states. Did you know:

Energy Matters

In the world's conversation about energy, one point is beyond debate: Energy makes a vital contribution to people's quality of life, to society and to human progress. This is true today, and it will remain true in the future. That's why Energy Matters was created. We believe it's important to equip people with unbiased information so they may form opinions, join the conversation and feel confidence in the work and accomplishments of the energy sector. Energy Matters is an initiative that provides transparent information and perspective on energy. Here, we'll cover a range of topics: the scale of global energy; the ways energy is sourced and produced; current energy technology; forthcoming innovations; the world's future energy needs; and the sustainable sources of energy that will fill them. Because energy matters to everyone, we hope you'll rely on Energy Matters as an ongoing source of balanced information.
