U.S. primary energy consumption by source and sector
This divided bar diagram sample shows U.S. primary energy consumption by source and sector in 2015. It was designed using data from the chart in the webpage "U.S. Energy Facts Explained, Consumption & Production" on the website of the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
"Americans use many types of energy
Petroleum, natural gas, coal, renewable energy, and nuclear electric power are primary sources of energy. Electricity is a secondary energy source that is generated from primary sources of energy.
Energy sources are measured in different physical units: liquid fuels in barrels or gallons, natural gas in cubic feet, coal in short tons, and electricity in kilowatts and kilowatthours. In the United States, British thermal units (Btu), a measure of heat energy, is commonly used for comparing different types of energy to each other. In 2015, total U.S. primary energy consumption was about 97.7 quadrillion (1015, or one thousand trillion) Btu."
The chart example "U.S. primary energy consumption by source and sector" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Divided Bar Diagrams solution from the Graphs and Charts area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
