Tennessee ranks among the top one-third of the states in total energy consumption and near the median of the states in energy consumption per capita.9,10 The long travel distances across Tennessee, combined with the state’s role as a logistics hub, contribute to the transportation sector accounting for about three-tenths of the state’s total energy consumption. Manufacturing is a leading component of the state’s economy, and the industrial sector uses slightly less energy than the transportation sector.11 The industrial activities that make the largest contributions to Tennessee’s gross domestic product (GDP) include the manufacture of chemicals; computers and electronic products; food, beverages, and tobacco products; motor vehicles and automotive parts; and petroleum and coal products.12 Overall, the amount of energy used to produce one dollar of GDP in Tennessee is slightly greater than the median of the states.13
Tennessee's climate is relatively mild, but it is greatly influenced by the state’s topography. Much of the state experiences hot summers and mild winters. However, the mountains of eastern Tennessee, which includes the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, are much colder.14 The residential sector, where both heating and air conditioning are widely used, accounts for almost one-fourth of the state’s total energy consumption.15,16
