Commercial buildings receive the bulk of attention in this issue, but I saw an interesting headline the other day (Energy Consumption by U.S. government at lowest level since at least 1975) and thought it was worth exploring a little more. This came via the U.S. Energy Information Administration, and you can find the full February 4 release at www.eia.gov.
The main graph (representing both military and civilian agencies) is broken into three types of energy, and it may startle you to learn that jet fuel represents almost half of all the energy consumed by the federal government. “Fuels other than jet fuel” is the second and considerably smaller category. And then, of course, the final category is facilities.
