The obvious place to start is with electric utilities. Those burning coal would get the heaviest penalty. Those burning natural gas – the fuel favored by its low price and abundance in the nation -- some penalty, but not as heavy.
EIA forecasts that natural gas inventories will reach 3,263 billion cubic feet (Bcf) at the end of October, the lowest end-of-October level for U.S. natural gas inventories since 2005.
Wind and solar resources are unique among sources of electricity. Unlike most other generating technologies, grid operators generally do not dispatch wind and solar generation because these generators produce electricity only when the associated resources are available.
Most U.S. households can expect higher heating expenditures this winter (October through March) compared with last winter according to EIA.
Natural gas prices have spiked over the last few weeks as U.S. inventories run low ahead of the peak winter heating season. Natural gas prices have jumped nearly 15 percent over the past month, rising to roughly $3.30 per million Btu (MMBtu).
Roughly 28 percent of the Gulf of Mexico's natural gas production was shut down as of Tuesday, as the region braced for a powerful hurricane to make landfall.
Production and operating costs of oil and gas field operators went up by about 2 percent last year, the Oil and Gas Authority—said in a new report.
Renewable power generation will come to account for a third 2023 says the International Energy Agency.
Solar cell technologies need to fulfill three conditions to be worth commercializing: their conversion rate of sunlight into electricity must be high, they must be inexpensive to produce, and they must have a long lifespan.
Hurricane Gordon entered the Gulf of Mexico on September 3, triggering the first shut-in oil and natural gas production of the 2018 season.
According to EIA, Natural gas supply and demand grew significantly during the first half of 2018.
Demand for natural gas is falling and demand is dropping by scaling back its natural gas output and halting production at some wells.
Gulf Coast refineries have become lighter since 2008 as refineries moved away from heavier imported crude oil to lighter crude oil produced in Texas.
Natural gas from the United States more than doubled the average daily net exports during all of 2017. The United States has continued to export more natural gas than it imports for five of the first six months in 2018.
During the 2018 water year that ends September 30, 2018, The Dalles Dam in the Pacific Northwest experienced above-normal inflow—water volume flowing into the dam—but electricity generation from the dam remained relatively normal.
According to EIA’s international electricity statistics, hydroelectric and fossil fuel-powered generation were the top sources of growth between 2005 and 2015. During that period, hydroelectric generation increased by about 40%, while fossil fuel-powered generation increased by 15%.
As a result of record-high temperatures and fuel supply constraints this summer, wholesale electricity prices in the western United States reached their highest levels since 2008
Electricity generation in the Southwest Power Pool (SPP), a regional transmission organization (RTO) covering all or part of fourteen Midwestern states, is mostly provided by three fuels: coal, natural gas, and wind.
An oil price spike is starting to look increasingly possible, with a rerun of 2008 not entirely out of the question, according to a new report
Hydrogen is seeing support grow in Europe as an alternative to oil and gas, and over renewable energy such as wind and solar.
