The energy data from the US Dept of Energy Energy Information Administration
State Energy Data System are used to measure and
compare the energy conservation performance of the buildings sectors (residential and commercial combined) of each state, using
a multivariate regression model of total nonrenewable buildings energy use as a function of population and population crossed with
population-weighted heating and cooling degree days for the year 2004. A PDF of the report file below allows the report on
these initial results to be examined.
