US Residential Energy Consumption Analysis


The U.S. Energy Information Administration conducts the Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS) every 4-5 years to collect detailed information on energy related characteristics, consumption, and expenditures for U.S. homes.


Analyze data from the 2015 Residential Energy Consumption Survey and identify key factors that impact total household energy consumption. Key questions include:

  • What are the primary end uses for household energy consumption?

  • What factors have the strongest relationship with total household energy consumption?

  • What is the relationship between temperature and total household energy consumption?

  • How does total household energy consumption vary across US regions?


2015 Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS) data was obtained from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) website.
