Slide 1. US Energy Mix
U.S demand for energy can be broadly divided into three sectors, transportation, heat and electricity. The transportation sector, representing approximately 30% of energy demand, is dominated by oil, which is required for refined fuels. The heating sector, also representing approximately 30% of energy demand, is dominated by oil and natural gas, and the electricity sector, representing the remaining approximate 40% of energy demand (and growing), has a diverse portfolio of fuel options, but is still heavily represented by coal and natural gas. The U.S. imports nearly 2/3 of our oil and approximately 1/5 of our natural gas today.
