The sources of energy we use in the United States, and the way we use it, have major implications for our national security, global climate change, the cost of goods and services, and our quality of life. In these times of national turmoil and transition, we are reevaluating our traditional energy sources and usage. In order to understand and plan for new directions in energy policy, research, and technology
development, we must first understand where we are now. This briefing explored how energy is currently used by different sectors of the economy, what resources we have available, and what challenges we face for the future.
