The State Doc Pick of the Week is the North Carolina State Energy Report, which was prepared by Appalachian State University and published by the North Carolina Energy Policy Council and the North Carolina Energy Office. Look here for state data on energy consumption, use of fossil and nuclear fuels, the electricity market, alternative fuels, renewable energy sources, energy usage by the public sector, transportation energy use, residential energy use, and energy efficiency.
This chart illustrates the powerful data here for researchers and reference librarians. The report concludes with a list of current and potential energy research areas for North Carolina. This is a single volume encyclopedia on energy use in the state, and it can be obtained at http://digital.ncdcr.gov/u?/p249901coll22,70630. This digital publication can be downloaded, saved, and/or printed for free.
