In its 2007 Session, the Iowa General Assembly passed, and Governor Culver signed into law, extensive and far-reaching state energy policy legislation. This legislation created the Iowa Office of Energy Independence and the Iowa Power Fund. It also required a report to be issued each year detailing: • The historical use and distribution of energy in Iowa. • The growth rate of energy consumption in Iowa, including rates of growth for each energy source. • A projection of Iowa’s energy needs through the year 2025 at a minimum. • The impact of meeting Iowa’s energy needs on the economy of the state, including the impact of energy production and use on greenhouse gas emissions. • An evaluation of renewable energy sources, including the current and future technological potential for such sources. Much of the energy information for this report has been derived from the on-line resources of the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the United States Department of Energy (USDOE). The EIA provides policy-independent data, forecasts and analyses on energy production, stored supplies, consumption and prices. For complete, economy-wide information, the most recent data available is for the year 2008. For some energy sectors, more current data is available from EIA and other sources and, when available, such information has been included in this report.
