Energy Use

The consumption of fossil fuels is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. Energy consumption is directly linked to greenhouse gas emissions.

Ecology is currently reporting natural gas, fuel oil, propane, biomass, on-site renewable generated ethanol, gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, and aviation fuel.

Energy consumption data is not currently available for Ecology’s Manchester Laboratory or Vancouver Field Office.
