Learning about energy usage in your city and similar cities can lead to more strategic energy decisions and can help your city plan and implement clean energy projects. To create the City Energy Profiles, the U.S. Department of Energy's Cities Leading through Energy Analysis and Planning (Cities-LEAP) and State and Local Energy Data (SLED) programs compiled comprehensive energy use and activity data for 23,400+ cities! This data is searchable by zip code and hosted on the SLED website.
A city's energy profile includes summary reports for the following:
- Greenhouse gas emissions
- Electricity generation
- Natural gas and other fuel source costs
- Renewable energy resource potential
- Transportation, buildings, and industry data
- Applicable policies and incentives.
