US Energy Flows

Energy use in the United States estimated by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Dark gray shows energy actually utilized (39%) and light gray shows energy lost (rejected) (61%). Much of the loss is inevitable due to distributions systems etc., but much could be conserved. This energy flow chart shows the relative size of primary energy resources and end uses in the United States, with fuels compared on a common energy-unit basis.
