Nebraska's Total Energy Consumption
by End–Use Sector

In 2011, the industrial sector consumed more than a third (43 percent) of Nebraska's total energy consumption. The other three end–use sectors comprised relatively equal portions of Nebraska's total energy consumption. Twenty–three (23) percent of the energy consumed in Nebraska was used in the transportation sector. The residential sector consumed 18 percent, and the commercial sector consumed 16 percent.

Between 2010 and 2011, the only sector to see an increase in consumption was the industrial sector. The industrial sector's energy use increased 6.0 percent. The commercial sector's energy use decreased 3.8 percent, the transportation sector's energy use decreased 3.1 percent, and the residential sector's energy use decreased 1.5 percent.
