US Ethanol Production Slowly Rising (Ind. Report)
US Energy Information Agency
Date: 2020-06-19
The US Energy Information Agency (EIA) is reporting U.S. ethanol production was up slightly the week ending June 12, while weekly ethanol ending stocks were down roughly 2 pct.

U.S. fuel ethanol production reached averaged 841,000 bpd the week ending June 12, up from an average of 837,000 bpd the previous week. Production was down 240,000 bpd when compared to the same week of 2019 and down 238,000 bpd when compared to the final week of February, before U.S. fuel markets started to be impacted by COVID-19. Weekly ending stocks fell to 21.346 million barrels the week ending June 12, down from 21.802 million barrels the previous week. Weekly ending stocks were down 267,000 barrels when compared to the same week of 2019. (Source: US EIA, 17 June, 2020)

Biomass Eclipsed by Solar as US Power Source (Ind. Report)
US Energy Information Agency
Date: 2018-07-11
According to the US Energy Information Agency (EIA) Preliminary Monthly Electric Generator Inventory, U.S. electric power generation from solar resources reached 77 million MWh in 2017, surpassing for the first time annual generation from biomass resources, which generated 64 million MWh in 2017. Among renewable sources, only hydro and wind generated more electricity in 2017, at 300 million MWh and 254 million MWh, respectively.

EIA data also shows that while biomass generating capacity has remained relatively unchanged in recent years, solar generating capacity has consistently grown. In 2017, December solar capacity additions accounted for 21 pct of the annual total.

Biomass electricity generation comes from multiple fuel sources which in 2017 had the following make-up of the 64 million MWh generated: wood solids 68 pct; landfill gas 17 pct; municipal solid waste 11 pct; and other biogenic and nonbiogenic materials 4 pct.

Transportation Surpasses Power Generation Emissions (Ind. Report)
EIA
Date: 2017-12-08
According to the US Energy Information Agency (EIA), emissions from the transportation sector -- automobiles, trucks, airplanes, and ships -- now surpasses emissions from the electric power sector.

The increase in transportation emissions is partially due to the steady increase in the number of vehicles on the road and the frequency and length of trips taken.

On the other hand, falling power sector emissions can be partially attributed to the significant growth in the use of natural gas and renewable energy and the decline of "Old King Coal" and other fossil fuels.
