The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) projects that 2016 is the tipping year from coal to natural gas in the fueling of U.S. power generation facilities. The EIA’s Short Term Energy Outlook forecasts that gas will provide 33% of electricity this year while coal’s share dips to 32%—the first time that gas will have the largest share for a year. The share of non-hydro renewables is expected to rise to 8%. Hydropower’s share is forecast to be 6%.
