Trends in Renewable Energy Consumption and Electricity 2009

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports detailed historical data on renewable energy consumption and electricity annually in its report, the Renewable Energy Annual. This report, Trends in Renewable Energy Consumption and Electricity 2009, provides an overview and tables with historical data spanning as far back as 1989 through 2009, including revisions. These tables correspond to identical tables to be presented in chapter 1 of the Renewable Energy Annual 2009 and are numbered accordingly. The renewable energy resources in the report include: biomass (wood and derived fuels, municipal solid waste (MSW) biogenic, landfill gas, ethanol, biodiesel and other biomass); geothermal; wind; solar (solar thermal and photovoltaic); and conventional hydropower. Hydroelectric pumped storage is excluded, because it is usually based on non-renewable energy sources. Prior editions of this report may be found on the EIA website at Energy Annual. Definitions for terms used in this report can be found in EIA’s Energy Glossary: General information about all the EIA surveys with data related to renewable energy and referenced in this report can be found here:
