EIA Survey Shows State-by-State Fuel Use, Emissions

Energy-related carbon dioxide emissions, counting the emissions from fuel consumption only, vary significantly across states, with Texas and California registering the highest carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions with 652.6 million metric tons (mmt) and 369.8 mmt respectively in 2010, according to a survey by the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

Industry Brief

Without counting the ongoing switch to alternative transportation fuels such as natural gas, nearly 80% of current oil consumption used for transportation worldwide could be eliminated in the next 40 years through aggressive fuel efficiency programs, according to two reports released in Paris by the International Energy Agency (IEA), an autonomous nonprofit organization. The IEA reports conclude that the “right policies and technologies” could improve vehicular fuel efficiency by 50% by the middle of the century. According to the IEA, the transportation sector accounts for 20% of world energy consumption and increased demand in the sector is expected to comprise all future growth in oil use globally. However, the reports contend that there is “massive potential” for fuel efficiency improvements to reduce transport fuel demand. One report, “Technology Roadmap: Fuel Economy for Road Vehicles,” outlines technologies to make vehicles much more efficient by 2030, and the second, “Policy Pathway: Improving the Fuel Economy of Road Vehicles,” outlines policy changes in fuel economy labeling, standards and fiscal policies.

All Emissions Considered, Gas Beats Coal, Says Report

Even counting higher estimated emissions of methane (CH4) from shale gas production activities, natural gas-fired power generation still beats coal-fired power by a wide margin when it comes to overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, according to a new study published by the gas-friendly American Clean Skies Foundation (ACSF).

Bentek: Don’t Count on Fuel-Switching

Anyone counting on stricter air emissions rules to drive a gas-fired power generation buildout and put a higher floor under natural gas prices is going to be disappointed — or at least is going to have to wait a while, according to Bentek Energy LLC.
