Certrec Market Research

August Poll Insights

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, fossil fuels—petroleum, natural gas, and coal—accounted for 79 percent of the 97 quadrillion British thermal units of primary energy consumption in the United States during 2021. By current DOE estimates, 75 percent of U.S. energy will come from fossil fuels in 2050, which is widely inconsistent with IPCC carbon reduction goals. As renewables and alternative forms of energy replace fossil fuel in the energy mix, they will also need to keep up with overall increases in energy consumption.

Last month, we asked our audience: in the next decade, what role do you see for fossil fuels in the U.S. energy mix? Overall, 43 percent voted for a significant role, while 31 percent voted for a moderate role, and 26 percent voted minimal role. No role, at zero percent, was voted least.
