About the Sustainable Energy in America Factbook

Each year, the Factbook provides comprehensive information and analysis on major sustainable energy facts and trends from the previous year. The Factbook includes energy statistics on market growth and contraction and analysis of trends in the energy efficiency, natural gas, renewable energy, and other clean energy segments.

The 2023 Factbook will look back on year-on-year dynamics, including which emerging technologies made headway in the past year and whether high costs impacted clean energy investment and deployment.
