3Natural gas, plus a small amount of supplemental gaseous fuels. 11Industrial combined-heat-and-power (CHP) and industrial electricity-only plants.
4Blast furnace gas, propane gas, and other manufactured and waste gases derived from fossil fuels. R=Revised.  P=Preliminary.  – – =Not applicable.  – =No data reported.  (s)=Less than 0.5 trillion Btu.  
5Values are converted from kilowattthours to Btu using the approximate heat rates in Table A6. Notes:  ·  Data are for energy consumed to produce electricity.  ·  See Table 8.4b for electric power
sector electricity-only and CHP data.  ·  See Note 1, "Coverage of Electricity Statistics," and Note 2,
"Classification of Power Plants Into Energy-Use Sectors," at end of section.  ·  Totals may not equal sum of
components due to independent rounding.
6Wood and wood-derived fuels. Web Page:  For related information, see http://www.eia.gov/electricity/.
7Municipal 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).
