These indicators show the decreasing energy intensity of Maine industry over time. Read more about energy statistics.

Gross Product in Maine Industry per Unit of Energy Input

Maine industries are growing faster than energy consumption in the industrial sector. In other words, the industrial sector of the Maine economy is becoming less energy intensive over time.

Source: Energy consumption in industry by state is available from the EIA SEDS database. Sales from industrial activity are taken from the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Energy Analysis (BEA) using categories from the U.S. Census North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
