11 maps that explain the US energy system
… a detailed look at every aspect of America’s energy system.
This is a comprehensive and easy to understand snapshot of power sources around the USA. One of the big things it illustrates to me is the importance of electricity, the shifts from oil to other forms and more than anything, how dependent we are on electricity.
It also makes me think about electric cars. How green are they if we rely on energy forms such as coal, oil, shale and nuclear power?
Either way, it is a great example of the power of a map for analytics. To tell this story in any other way would take a book that most people wouldn’t read.
