Industrial Process Heat Demand Characterization

This data set is an expansion of the facility-level process heat survey conducted by McMillan et al. 2015 https// Using the same methodology annual facility combustion energy use was calculated from emissions data reported to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program https// for 2010 to 2015. The resulting energy values in TJ total and by fuel type were further characterized by end use using data from U.S. Energy Information Administration 2010 Manufacturing Energy Consumption Survey https// and by temperature range. The data set includes calculated GHG emissions in MMTCO2e by fuel type end use and temperature range.
