From Smart Energy Decisions

Click image above for larger version

Each year, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) releases energy flow charts that illustrate the nation's consumption and use of energy. The latest on "Estimated U.S. Energy Consumption in 2017" shows Americans' overall energy use for the year. When looking at the chart, notice the amount of energy used by each sector, as well as the amount produced by each energy source, including solar, ind, nuclear, hydro, and geothermal as well as petroleum, natural gas, and coal. But don't forget to read the fine print, where end-use efficiency is displayed for each sector.
