Yesterday the EIA published December's numbers for US energy consumption and CO2 emissions. That completes the year.
2016's energy consumption came to 103 exajoules, the same as 2015. ("exa" = 1018.) That's 3.8% below 2007's maximum of 107 EJ.
But there was an extra day in 2016, so average power consumption dropped by an insignificant margin, from 3.26 terawatts to 3.25 terawatts. ("tera" = 1012.)
Because there are ever more Americans, the average power consumption per capita was 10,030 Watts per person, down 1.0% from 2015. That number is down 17% from 1979's maximum of 12,020 W/person.
Clearly the US has passed the point where ever more energy consumption is required to maintain economic growth.
Will do CO2 tomorrow.
