This exploration of US residential sector energy use for the year 2015 examines
overall sector energy use characteristics, energy-using populations, energy performance of
state residential sectors, temperature dependency of energy use and disaggregation of
energy based on that dependence, and end use allocation for space heating, space cooling,
domestic hot water, refrigeration, and all remaining (other) energy use.
Some issues with RECS data are explained and considered, and the end use breakout
differs markedly from RECS results obtained previously.
