II. Renewable Electric Power (Modeling)
In the United States, consumers of electric power include all sectors of society— residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation related. Because of this broad dependency, reliable and uninterruptible sources of electric power (and those with the lowest environmental impact) are important. The United States has many sources of electrical power generation—predominately coal, natural gas, nuclear power, and renewable sources. The focus of this application is renewable sources because these will not be depleted, even though some renewables can be significant polluters (such as energy from combustion of wood or municipal waste).
The following table shows data for billions of kilowatt-hours of U.S. electrical power generation for selected years from 2016 and projected to 2040.
Use the given data sets to create a data set that corresponds to .
Graph the data set and the model in on the same set of axes.
How well does the model fit these data points?
