EIA Data Tools & Models

The US Energy Information Administration is committed to making its data available through an Application Programming Interface (API) to better serve our customers. APIs allows computers to more easily access our public data. By making EIA data available is this machine readable format, the creativity in the private, the non-profit, and the public sectors can be harnessed to find new ways to analyze and create added-value services powered by public data.

On September 21, 2012, EIA's API was released as a beta product with the initial 408,000 electricity series. On Jan 24, 2013 the entire State Energy Data System was added, comprised of over 30,000 additional time-series. On August 23, 126,000 petroleum and natural gas series were added. As we add EIA's coal and Annual Energy Outlook data over the coming months, a significant portion of EIA's data will become available through this interface.

The EIA API is offered as a free public service, although registration is required. The registration and compliance with the API Terms of Service will allow EIA to monitor usage and ensure service availability. The API is provided free of charge and should be used in compliance with our Copyrights and Reuse page.
