The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s US Energy Flow Chart

Sometimes, to equip investors to make informed decisions about MLPs and energy infrastructure means to point them to content elsewhere on the web. To that end, here is the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s US energy flow chart for last year, as estimated in March 2014. (Charts for other countries and individual US states are available here, a guaranteed time sinkhole for energy data nerds.) My biggest takeaway is how inefficient electricity generation and transportation are, with natural gas taking electricity generation market share from coal and nuclear a close second. What’s yours?
