The EIA bases its report on its 2009 Residential Energy Consumption Survey.
According to industry research consumer electronics are poised to grow substantially as a share of residential energy consumption.
Although the efficiencies of residential building shells, space conditioning equipment, lamps, and appliances have improved significantly in recent years, the total residential energy consumption in the United States is increasing, and this is projected to continue.
Despite widespread use of efficient technology, a new study by scientists from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory shows that from 1985 to 2002, total residential energy consumption per capita climbed eight percent, and residential consumption for the nation--the figure most relevant to global effects like carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions--climbed 32 percent.
