Data Definition
Residential and Commercial (RC) non-electric fossil fuel energy consumption refers to direct fuel consumption in the RC sector. This primarily involves the burning of natural gas, heating oil and liquefied petroleum for space heating of buildings in the RC sector. The EIA tracks state level energy consumption at the sector level and by fuel type. Because space heating demand varies significantly depending on whether a winter is mild or severe, and to a lesser degree on fuel prices, Commerce will use a three trailing averaging technique to smooth the data. For reporting year 2012 Commerce will average the direct fossil fuel consumption by the RC sub-sector for the years 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Data Frequency
Annual SEDS data that lags 18 months. Calendar year 2012 data will be reported in June, 2014.
Target Rationale
A key approach to save energy and thereby reduce state GHG emissions from the RC sub-sector will be to promote energy efficiency measures that reduce fossil fuel consumption for space heating and other purposes in the RC sub-sector. A reduction to 140 trillion Btu by 2020 represents an ambitious target.
