Buildings Energy Data Book

Metadata Updated: August 29, 2017

The Building Energy Data Book (2011) is a compendium of data from a variety of data sets and includes statistics on residential and commercial building energy consumption. Data tables contain statistics related to construction, building technologies, energy consumption, and building characteristics. The Building Technologies Office (BTO) within the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy developed this resource to provide a comprehensive set of buildings- and energy-related data.

The Data Book has not been updated since 2011.

The data sets comprising the Data Book are now publicly available in user-friendly formats and you can use them to find data relevant to your questions. Please find below a list of Energy Information Administration (EIA) data sets that BTO consults:
