The Oregon Department of Energy is responsible for collecting and analyzing data about energy in Oregon.
ODOE regularly collects data about Oregon's energy supply, use, and resiliency. Analyzing the information is critical to understanding the state's current energy landscape and for guiding decision-making and statewide energy planning.
Currently, most of Oregon's energy is used for transportation, heating and cooling, and electricity.
accounts for about a third of Oregon's energy use. Petroleum products like gasoline and diesel are the most common fuels for transportation.
When it comes to the amount of money Oregonians pay for energy, the cost of transportation fuels makes up about half.
Thermal energy is what we use for heating and cooling our homes and businesses, heating water, and the energy used for industrial processes like food processing or drying lumber.
Electricity, natural gas, and petroleum make up more than 90% of Oregon's thermal energy use.
Electricity powers everything from homes to cars in Oregon.
