s = Value is less than 0.5 of the table metric, but value is included in any associated total.
* = Absolute percentage less than 0.05.
- = No data reported.
Notes: Hydro Conventional does not include pumped storage. Solar includes solar thermal and photovoltaic. MSW = Municipal Solid Waste. Other Biomass includes agricultural byproducts/crops, sludge waste and other biomass solids, liquids and gases. MSW Biogenic includes paper and paper board, wood, food, leather, textiles and yard trimmings. Totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
