Electricity and the environment U.S. Energy Information

Many U.S. power plants produce CO2 emissions. The electric power sector is a large source of U.S. CO2 emissions. Electric power sector power plants that burned fossil fuels or materials made from fossil fuels, and some geothermal power plants, were the source of about 33% of total U.S. energy-related CO2 emissions in 2018.

Biomass and the environment U.S. Energy Information

Using biomass for energy has positive and negative effects. Biomass and biofuels made from biomass are alternative energy sources to fossil fuels—coal, petroleum, and natural gas. Burning either fossil fuels or biomass releases carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas.However, the plants that are the source of biomass for energy capture almost the same amount of CO2 through photosynthesis
