Through June, fossil fuels in America are on pace to set another annual production record. As for all renewable energy sources, they were slightly behind the 2011 record, after the first 6 months.
While coal production continues to decline in 2013, increases especially in oil and another rise in gas production are enough to make it likely that fossil fuel production will set a new record in 2013.
Renewable energy too may set a new record in 2013, though it was a bit below the pace set in 2011. Through June, declines in the two biggest source of renewable energy--hydro and biomass/biofuels--offset sharp increases in wind and solar production.
