End-Use Energy Vs. Primary Energ y End-use, or site, energy refers to energy consumed in industrial, business, and residential settings. Primary, or source, energy represents energy in the form it is first accounted before transformation to secondary or tertiary forms. The differences between primary and end-use potentials are attribut able to conversion, transmission, distribution, and transport losses. Different Sectors accounts for Percentage of the End-Use Efficiency Potential Different Sectors accounts for Percentage of Primary Energy Potential Total energy consumption, measured in quadrillions of BTUs, for the portions of each sector, plus the corresponding consumption if the identified...
