Total Energy Consumption Per Capita
Nebraska and the United States

In 2012, energy consumption per capita in Nebraska had decreased 9 millon Btu to 464.0 million Btu from 2011 consumption per capita of 473.0 million British thermal units (Btu). Consumption per capita in Nebraska for the year 2012 was 53 percent higher than the nation's consumption per capita of 303.0 million Btu.

In 2012, Nebraska consumed 860.6 trillion Btu of energy which was less than one percent (0.91%) of the United States' consumption.

Another measure of energy consumption intensity is reported in Nebraska's Energy Intensity (http://neo.ne.gov/statshtml/116.htm). An explanation of energy intensity indicators is in the report Energy Intensity Indicators. Additional information can be found on the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy website for Nebraska.
