Table 8 : U.S. Renewable Energy Consumption (Quadrillion Btu)

aConventional hydroelectric power only. Hydroelectricity generated by pumped storage is not included in renewable energy.
bWood and wood-derived fuels.
cMunicipal solid waste from biogenic sources, landfill gas, sludge waste, agricultural byproducts, and other biomass.
dIncludes small amounts of distributed solar thermal and PV energy used in the commercial, industrial, and electric power sectors.
