Each state has been given a unique symbol, which provides an overview of the state’s energy profile in terms of its infastructure, resources and market. The symbols allow you to compare and contrast these key indicators and explore connections among the states.
All states and regions include additional facts and highlights contained above the region or state summary as well as within Points of Interest indicated on the map.
