Manufacturing Thermal Energy Use in 2014

The first data set estimates thermal energy use (i.e., fuels combusted for process heating, boilers, and combined heat and power/cogeneration) by end use, temperature, county, and facility employment size class for all U.S. manufacturing industries in 2014. The estimation methodology builds off of prior estimates of industrial energy use (https://dx.doi.org/10.7799/1481899, https://dx.doi.org/10.7799/1461488).
The second data set estimates hourly heat load (as a fraction of annual energy used for heat) using hourly observations of industrial boiler and combined heat and power/cogeneration heat load from EPA's Air Markets Program Data (https://ampd.epa.gov/ampd/), weekly operating hours in 2014 from Census Quarterly Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization (https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/qpc/data.html), and annual production hours reported by assessments conducted by Industrial Assessment Centers (https://iac.university/).
