The report provides a complete picture of the country situation, dynamics, current issues and future prospects. With market data and continuous follow-up of markets news, this report brings clear and concise insights with which to tackle national energy challenges and opportunities. Browse the tabs below for a detailed table of contents, the list of graphs and tables, and details on the data files.


  • The US has set a new target of a 50-52% reduction in GHG emissions in 2030 compared to 2005 levels.
  • Ten large electricity companies own about 30% of the total capacity.
  • Since 2018, Chevron topped ExxonMobil as the country's biggest crude and NGL producer.
  • The US is the largest producer of both oil and gas worldwide.
  • Oil production decreased by 5% in 2020, after a decade-long increase driven by non-conventional oil, and did not fully recover in 2021.
  • Renewables reached 21% of the power mix in 2021 and carbon free sources 39%.
  • US energy prices are generally around 40-50% below the OECD average.
  • Total energy consumption only partly recovered in 2021 after a sharp drop in 2020 (+4% vs -8%). A significant rebound of coal consumption was observed in 2021 (+10%).
  • LNG export capacities are expected to increase by more than 50% by 2026 and LNG export volumes to double by 2050.
  • More than 40% of the coal-fired capacity will be retired by 2030, and almost 20% of the nuclear capacity by 2033.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Department of Energy (DoE) oversees the coordination of all the national activities concerning the production, regulation, management, and conservation of energy. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is in charge of developing and promoting energy technologies that contribute to "sustainable" development.

  • Energy Supply


    Natural gas production increased by 90% between 2005 and 2019 (5%/year on average; it declined slightly in 2020 and recovered in 2021 to 969 bcm (+2%). This increasing trend was mainly driven by shale gas production, which went from 53 bcm in 2006 to 768 bcm in 2021 (i.e. around 79% of total gas production).

  • Energy Prices


    Average gasoline and diesel prices are very close and are driven by the crude oil price; they averaged around $0.8/l in 2021. They are the lowest among OECD countries (around 50% lower than the average in the rest of the OECD) and increased by around 21% and 17% in 2021 for gasoline and diesel, respectively, following a decrease in 2020, thus reaching levels similar to 2019.

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita consumption was around 6.4 toe/cap (including 12 MWh/cap of electricity) in 2021, which is more than 60% higher than the OECD average.

  • Issues & Prospects

    Official EIA long-term forecasts (AEO- Annual Energy Outlook 2022, reference scenario) expect energy consumption to increase by 27% until 2050 (0.9%/year on average).
