The US energy industry is at crossroads - whether to continue using fossil fuels or to switch over to renewable energy options. While the US is slowly and steadily moving towards integrating more and more usage of renewable energy in its energy landscape, the fact remains that the US' dependence on fossil fuels is far from being over.

Having large resources of natural gas and with an increasing demand for electricity driving the US energy industry, Taiyou Research presents the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats facing the US energy industry.

With the crisis at Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant being a sharp reminder of the risks involved with nuclear power, it remains to be seen whether the US is able to let go of its nuclear resources to meet the growing demand of energy the country is facing on a yearly basis.

The US is already one of the biggest polluters in the world, and its dependence on fossil fuels is acting against the country as the government tries hard to control its carbon footprint.

Taiyou Research's SWOT analysis on the US energy industry takes into consideration all these factors and presents a comprehensive Strengths & Weaknesses/Opportunities & Threats profile of the energy industry in the United States.
