During Q1 2018, the Company's DTE Electric segment's operating earnings surged 34% to $142 million compared to $106 million in Q1 2017, driven by a lower storm expense, a return to normal weather, and the implementation of new rates.

For Q1 2018, DTE Energy's Gas Storage and Pipelines segment's operating earnings were $62 million, reflecting a growth of 38% compared to $45 million in Q1 2017, with the increase primarily attributed to a lower tax rate, as well as increased gathering and transport volumes, mainly in the Bluestone area. The Company's Power and Industrial segment's operating earnings soared 40% to $42 million versus $30 million in the year earlier comparable quarter, due to higher REF volumes and higher steel-related earnings, as well as the lower tax rate.
During Q1 2018, the Company's Energy Trading segment's operating earnings were $1 million, which were down $17 million from Q1 2017, driven by a lower performance in accounting flow through in DTE Energy's Power portfolio.
During Q1 2018, DTE Energy's cash from operations totaled $838 million, up 6% compared to $787 million in Q1 2017, primarily driven by an increase in depreciation and amortization expenses, and working capital adjustments.
