In honor of Earth Day this past Sunday, NPP’s focus this week is on the environment.
The Federal Priorities Database—our collection of spending and indicators compiled into one easy-to-use, free search tool--has several data collections related to energy and the environment.
The data below have the latest available information about your state:
- Alternative Fuel Vehicles: the estimated number of alternative fuel vehicles in use, 2003-2009
- Electric Emissions: emissions generated by electricity plants, 1990-2010
- Energy Consumption by Source: total energy consumption from fossil fuels, nuclear electric, and renewable sources, 1990-2009
- Energy Consumption Per Person: total energy consumption per person, 1990-2009
- Nuclear Energy Research and Development: federal money spent on research, development, and demonstration of nuclear energy, 2002-2010
- Renewable Energy Research and Development: federal money spent on grants to research and develop alternatives to traditional fuels, 1993-2010
