The President issued a directive on April 15, 1999, requiring an annual report summarizing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions produced by electricity generation in the United States, including both utilities and non-utilities. In response, this report is jointly submitted by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The data on CO2 emissions and generation of electricity were collected and prepared by the Energy Information Administration. This report is structured to address the five areas outlined the Presidential Directive.
