The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts electricity demand will drop about 1% during the second quarter of 2023 compared to the same period last year, and coal is expected to play a reduced role in the U.S. energy mix.

The EIA projects electricity use will drop to 4,000 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2023 from last year's record high of 4,048 billion kWh.
