The Short-Term Energy and Winter Fuels Outlook was released by the Energy Information Administration on October 8, projecting that carbon emissions from energy production would rise 1.7 percent this year and 0.9 percent in 2014. The agency said the increase is connected to a rise in electricity demand and higher natural gas prices that will ramp up coal-fired generation. The report said coal generation will increase 6.1 percent and natural gas generation will fall 9.8 percent in 2013. It also anticipates an increase of 14 percent in non-hydropower renewable generation.
