In Beta Testing

  • Hourly Electric Grid Monitor
  • Beta testing started: August 21, 2019
  • EIA’s new Hourly Electric Grid Monitor is a redesigned and enhanced version of EIA’s existing U.S. Electric System Operating Data website. The data for the Hourly Electric Grid Monitor come from the Form EIA-930, Hourly and Daily Balancing Authority Operations Report, which collects hourly electricity demand, forecast demand, net generation, and interchange data from the electricity balancing authorities that operate the electric grid in the Lower 48 states.
  • The Hourly Electric Grid Monitor incorporates two new data elements: hourly electricity generation by energy source and hourly subregional demand. The new website also provides new and more flexible options for visualizing the data and allows users to create custom dashboards that can be saved and shared.
  • State Energy Portal
  • Beta testing started: May 15, 2019
  • EIA’s new State Energy Portal provides greater access to more state-level U.S. energy data, with interactive, customized views of more than 150 charts, tables, and maps. Infographics provide the overall energy context for the states, while state rankings provide a way to compare states. Charts can be downloaded or embedded in customer websites. EIA developed this tool in response to feedback from a wide variety of customers of its state-level data. For a more detailed list of features and functionality, see the release notes.
  • Electricity Data Browser Enhanced with plant level cooling water and emission data
  • Beta testing started: January 5, 2018
  • This newer version of EIA's popular Electricity Data Browser includes newly released data for cooling water and emissions at the plant level. In addition to the new data, new functionality was added to allow users to compare plant data, filter and order results, and show or hide the visualization. Check it out and give us feedback.
  • CBECS Grocery Store Establishment Data
  • Beta testing started: October 12, 2016
  • This EIA Beta data file includes CBECS data for grocery store establishments that were sampled within strip shopping centers during the main CBECS data collection. CBECS traditionally reports about strip shopping center buildings, not about the individual establishments within the building. In the process of producing building-level strip shopping center estimates, EIA collects some information about individual strip shopping center establishments. Grocery stores are often found within strip shopping center buildings instead of as standalone buildings and because they are high-intensity energy users that are of interest to some data users, EIA is making available a public use data file of 38 food sales establishments larger than 25,000 square feet. EIA recommends the establishment-level grocery store data be used for exploratory research uses only.

Out of Beta & In Production

  • International Energy Portal
  • Beta tested: May 18, 2015–January 12, 2020
  • EIA's International Energy Portal was revised based on beta feedback to streamline navigation, simplify data presentation, and implement responsive design use. The International Energy Portal contains EIA’s country-level energy data. Our data covers over 200 countries for over 30 years and users can view and download datasets for consumption, production, trade, reserves, and carbon dioxide emissions for different fuels and energy sources. The portal also provides access to EIA's entire library of international reports, articles, and analyses, including Country Analysis Briefs. Users will now find data in fewer steps, customize data tables, and tailor visualizations to user needs. Visualizations include heat maps, bubble maps, column charts, and traditional line graphs, which can be animated over time.
  • U.S. Electric System Operating Data
  • Beta tested: July 25, 2016–January 10, 2018
  • EIA's U.S. Electric System Operating Data tool provides hourly electricity operating data, including actual and forecast demand, net generation, and the power flowing between electric systems. The information is collected directly from each interconnected electric system on the EIA-930 survey to provide nearly real-time demand data. The U.S. Electric System Operating Data tool allows for analysis and visualizations of hourly, daily, and weekly electricity supply and demand on a national and regional level for all of the 66 electric system balancing authorities that make up the U.S. electric grid.
  • North American Cooperation on Energy Information (NACEI)
  • Beta tested: February 16, 2016–November 15, 2017
  • This site is the work of a trilateral energy information collaboration between the United States, Canada, and Mexico for sharing of energy information for the North American region. This effort was launched to: improve respective energy import and export data; share publicly available geospatial information related to energy infrastructure; exchange views and projections on cross-border energy flows; and develop a cross reference in English, French, and Spanish for terminology, concepts, and definitions.
  • Improved Annual Energy Outlook Data Browser
  • Beta tested: April 14, 2015–October 21, 2016
  • Allows users to compare up to 4 cases against the reference case, and provides improved graphing and mapping capabilities. A built-in help function and video gives users tips on effective usage of this major update, which is now accessible from iPads and iPhones.
  • Application Programming Interface
  • Beta tested: September 28, 2012–November 30, 2015
  • The U.S. Energy Information Administration is committed to making its data available through an Application Programming Interface (API) to better serve our customers. An API allows computers to more easily access our public data. By making EIA data available in this machine-readable format, the creativity in the private, the non-profit, and the public sectors can be harnessed to find new ways to innovate and create value-added services powered by public data.
  • U.S. Crude Import Tracking Tool
  • Beta tested: November 10, 2014–November 11, 2016
  • Allows users to sort and display imports by month or year, density (i.e., light, medium, heavy), country of origin, port of entry, processing company, processing refinery, and more. The tool features graphing and mapping capabilities and a built-in help function.
  • Total Energy Interactive Table Browser
  • Beta tested: Nov 4, 2013–November 17, 2016
  • The interactive table browser lets users view the data and create interactive graphs of the Monthly Energy Reveiw’s monthly and annual data series. The interactive charts can be zoomed and downloaded as PNG or PDF files. Each tables data can be download as a single Excel file with separate worksheets for monthly and annual date.
  • Interactive Coal Data Browser
  • Beta tested: February 25, 2014–January 10, 2018
  • Uses advanced interactive programming techniques to combine the data from the Coal Quarterly, coal shipments from the EIA-923 survey, Mine Safety and Health Administration, and Census imports and exprts data into a single web tool. The user can select prepared reports or generate their own. Time series are always provided with interactive charting and animated national, state, basin and suppler network maps. Drill down views are provided for aggregate number where available.
