Northwest Combustible Fuels Energy Resources and Uses
QUESTION(S) Answered
Which combustible fuels (biomass, coal, natural gas, and petroleum) are consumed directly by each end-use sector? How is direct use combustible fuel consumption different in each end-use sector and for each of the four states from 1960-2020?

This visualization focuses on the combustible fuels used directly in end-use sectors in the Northwest, both historically since 1960 (lower visualization) and in 2020 (upper visualization). Note that the 2020 data reflect COVID-19’s impact on energy use and consumption.

Like the previous visualization, this visualization explores energy resources used directly in each end-use sector and does not include resources used to produce electricity used in each end-use sector. See Northwest Energy Resources Used to Produce Electricity to explore those data.
