Data Statistics

Presented here is a data repository for Colorado energy resources. The database includes tables, generated charts, and other miscellaneous figures. Data is sourced from various state and federal government organizations, industry, and internal CGS documents. The repository is divided into thematic sections. If a specific set of data you’re interested in is not available, please let us know and we will work to find this information. However, due to staffing reductions as a result of CGS no longer being a part of DNR, this data will not likely be updated in the near future. Thus, this web page is under construction.
