Nebraska's Total Energy Expenditures
by Fuel Type and by Sector

Nebraska spent $9,971.2 million (or $10.0 billion) in 2011 on energy, $8,688.5 million (or $8.7 billion) in 2010, and $7,130.9 million (or $7.1 billion) in 2009.  In 2011, expenditures on energy increased 15 percent from 2010.  In 2010, expenditures on energy increased 22 percent from 2009.  Total energy expenditures are expenditures for primary energy and end–use energy.

In 2011, expenditures for primary energy were $8,119.6 million, an increase of 18 percent from 2010.  In 2010, expenditures for primary energy were $6,898.5 million, an increase of 26 percent from 2009.  Primary energy expenditures are shown in the tables below for each sector and each fuel. Primary energy expenditures are shown in the tables below for each sector and each fuel.  Primary energy expenditures include the costs for energy used in the generation of electricity whether that electricity is used in Nebraska or not.

Total end–use expenditures are shown in the tables below for each sector and each fuel.  End–use energy expenditures refer to the cost of electricity and other fuels at the point of use by consumers.  In other words, the expenditures exclude costs for energy used in the generation of electricity whether that electricity is used in Nebraska or not (the electric power sector's expenditures).

Renewable energy consists of hydroelectric power, wind, wood and waste, ethanol, geothermal energy, and solar thermal and photovoltaic energy, but there are direct fuel costs for only wood, waste, and ethanol.

The expenditures are in nominal dollars to provide a better comparison.

Additional information is available for the residential sector, the commercial sector, the industrial sector, the transportation sector, and the electric power sector and several individual fuels:  coal, electricity, natural gas, petroleum by product, and petroleum by sector.  Information for the total state expenditures by end–use sectors and by fuel type is also available.
