New Electricity Data Browser
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) recently released a data browser that enables users to easily access and analyze the multitude of datasets that EIA keeps on electricity production and consumption in the U.S.. The Electricity Data Browser is the new, fully interactive digital conduit to the valuable information, allowing users to retrieve electricity data: production consumption, fuel receipts, fuel stockpiles, retail sales, and prices. The requested datasets can be displayed in graphs, tables and on a map of the U.S.. The data behind the browser comes from EIA’s Electric Power Monthly Report. The flexibility and ease of the browser’s user interface makes the new Electricity Data Browser an excellent tool for analysts, developers, and energy enthusiasts. Below is a graph of monthly production for biomass power generation from Jan. 2001 to Dec. 2012. Maps & Data Blog applauds EIA for the release of the Electricity Data Browser.
