The line graph shows fuel type – energy consumption from 1980-2008, along with the projected use until 2030 in the United States. Fossil fuels are seen the dominant type and will continue to stay in this trend in future also. A small but significant proportion of nuclear and renewable sources out of total energy will also be projected to continue doing so.

Petrol and Oil have the biggest share with 35 quadrillion units (35q) in 1980, rising to approximately 40q in 2008 and this trend is set to continue with a projected value of nearly 50q in 2030.

During 90’s coal and natural gas came in second and third, with around 20q and 16q respectively. There was small up and down during 1980 and 1990. It is seen that coal overtook natural gas after 2015 and is expected to rise in future also. It is estimated that natural gas will level off and remain relatively constant at about 25q at 2030.

The nuclear energy represented around 4q in 1980 and small upward fluctuation is seen during 2005 and is speculated that nuclear energy will reach 10q by 2030. Solar and hydropower was around 5q at 1980, dropping and then remaining constant at approximately 2q.
