The Energy Information Administration released its Annual Energy Outlook 2013 reference case December 5, highlighting a growth in total domestic energy production that exceeds growth in total domestic consumption through 2040 and finding that the United States will become a net exporter of natural gas earlier than previously estimated. The preview also found that renewable fuel use will grow faster than fossil fuel use while net imports of energy decline. EIA’s report also predicted that advanced biofuels would grow more slowly than its previous reports indicated due to decreased overall demand for gasoline and technological difficulties. The full report will be released in March of next year.
