1Anthracite, bituminous coal, subbituminous coal, lignite, waste coal, and coal synfuel. 9Solar thermal and photovoltaic (PV) energy.
2Distillate fuel oil, residual fuel oil, petroleum coke, jet fuel, kerosene, other petroleum, and waste oil. 10Batteries, chemicals, hydrogen, pitch, purchased steam, sulfur, miscellaneous technologies, and,
beginning in 2001, non-renewable waste (municipal solid waste from non-biogenic sources, and tire-derived
fuels).
3Natural gas, plus a small amount of supplemental gaseous fuels. 11Through 1988, all data except hydroelectric are for electric utilities only; hydroelectric data through
1988 include industrial plants as well as electric utilities.  Beginning in 1989, data are for electric utilities,
independent power producers, commercial plants, and industrial plants.
4Blast furnace gas, propane gas, and other manufactured and waste gases derived from fossil fuels. R=Revised.  P=Preliminary.  NA=Not available.  (s)=Less than 0.05 billion killowatthours.  
5Pumped storage facility production minus energy used for pumping. Notes:  -  See Note 1, "Coverage of Electricity Statistics," at end of section.  -  Totals may not equal sum
of components due to independent rounding.
6Through 1989, hydroelectric pumped storage is included in "Conventional Hydroelectric Power." Web Pages:  -  See http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/monthly/#electricity for updated monthly and
annual data.  -  See http://www.eia.gov/electricity/ for related information.
7Wood and wood-derived fuels. Sources:  -  1949-1988-Table 8.2b for electric power sector, and Table 8.1 for industrial sector.  -  1989
forward-Tables 8.2b and 8.2d.
8Municipal solid waste from biogenic sources, landfill gas, sludge waste, agricultural byproducts, and
other biomass.  Through 2000, also includes non-renewable waste (municipal solid waste from non-biogenic
sources, and tire-derived fuels).
