Notes & Sources

-- = No data reported.
*  = Value is less than half of the smallest unit of measure but greater than 0 (e.g., for values with no decimals, the smallest unit is 1 then values between 0 and 0.5 are shown as *.)
NA = Not available.
NM = Not meaningful due to large relative standard error or excessive percentage change.
W = Withheld to avoid disclosure of individual company data.
Note: Small differences between source data and values displayed here may be due to independent rounding.
Note: Total net electricity generation includes net generation from petroleum coke, pumped storage hydroelectric, other gases, and other energy sources, which are not shown separately.
