Data Statistics

Following is a partial 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. Because of CGS staff reductions this data will not likely be updated from this 2012 baseline.
