GLRPPR Sector Resource: Trends in Renewable Energy Consumption and Electricity 2009

Title:
Trends in Renewable Energy Consumption and Electricity 2009

Abstract:
Despite an economic recession and a significant fall in overall energy demand/consumption, the use of renewable fuels grew strongly in 2009. This growth has been supported by Federal and State programs, including federal tax credits, state renewable portfolio standards, and a federal renewable fuels standard. This chapter details renewable energy consumption in 2009 after explaining the unusual decrease in total energy consumption over the past two years.
