The Energy Program has produced a variety of cutting edge documents to help municipalities and schools understand their energy options in New Jersey, so that they remain on the cutting edge of the latest technology in the 21st century.

New Jersey Energy Flow Model

The New Jersey Energy Flow Model describes the use and flow of energy within the state. This document describes the results and methods used to construct the model that quantifies where all of NJ’s energy comes from, how it is used within different end-use segments, and all the connecting flows. This model provides a framework for quantifying the use of energy within the state at any point, based upon objectively available information.

This document provides a technical overview of the NJ Energy Flow Model, as implemented through a spreadsheet and associated visualization infographic (Version 4.5). Please refer to the infographic and spreadsheet for details referenced in this overview.
