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.
eFuel ethanol and biomass-based diesel consumption in the transportation sector includes production, stock change, and imports less exports. Some biomass-based diesel may be consumed in the residential sector in heating oil.
fLosses and co-products from the production of fuel ethanol and biomass-based diesel.

Notes: The approximate break between historical and forecast values is shown with historical data printed in bold; estimates and forecasts in italics.
Historical data:  Latest data available from EIA databases supporting the following reports: Electric Power Monthly, DOE/EIA-0226 and Renewable Energy Annual, DOE/EIA-0603; Petroleum Supply Monthly, DOE/EIA-0109.
Minor discrepancies with published historical data are due to independent rounding.
