US Energy Consumption During Lockdown

From Commercial Cafe, Oct, 2020

COVID-19 has put a damper on the hubbub of our interconnected societies, forcing us into an economic cooldown. As a result, the effects have spilled over into the job market, our daily routines and our pockets, as well as our power consumption patterns.

Using Energy Information Administration (EIA) state-level and sector-specific data on energy sales, this study reviews the effects of lockdown measures on energy consumption during the second quarter of 2020 as states were trying to manage the first wave of COVID-19 outbreaks. Our analysis then concludes with a breakdown of the main sources of energy generation in the U.S., their share within the national energy market, and any changes in their evolution during the pandemic.

Key takeaways:

  • Power consumption dipped 4% nationally, while the commercial sector registered an 11% Y-o-Y drop
  • U.S. household energy sales increased 8% in Q2, including a record 21% hike in Arizona and Michigan
  • Renewable power generation exceeded coal by 7% in Q2

Hawaii Info:

  • Down 11.5% -- Hawaii Total Energy Consumption - Q2 Y-o-Y*
  • Down 15.7% – Hawaii Industrial Energy Consumption - Q2 Y-o-Y*
  • Down 21.6% – Hawaii Commercial Energy Consumption - Q2 Y-o-Y*
  • Up 6.0% – Hawaii Residential Energy Consumption - Q2 Y-o-Y*
