aIncludes supplemental gaseous fuels that are commingled with natural gas. jLosses and co-products from the production of biodiesel and fuel ethanol.
bBeginning in 2009, includes biodiesel blended into distillate fuel oil. kSolar thermal and photovoltaic energy.
cHydrocarbon gas liquids, include natural gas liquids and refinery olefins. lBeginning in 1980, adjusted for the double-counting of supplemental gaseous fuels, which are included in both natural gas and the other fossil fuels from
which they are mostly derived, but should be counted only once in net energy and total. For 1981 through 1992, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor
gasoline that is not included in the motor gasoline column. Beginning in 2009, includes a small amount of wind energy consumed by the commercial and
industrial sectors.
dThrough 2004, includes kerosene-type and naphtha-type jet fuel. Beginning in 2005, includes kerosene-type jet fuel only; naphtha-type jet fuel is included
in "Other Petroleum."
mIncurred in the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity plus plant use and unaccounted for electrical system energy losses. Pre-1990
estimates are not comparable to those for later years. See Section 6 of Technical Notes for an explanation of changes in methodology.
eBeginning in 1993, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline. – – = Not applicable. NA = Not available.
fIncludes asphalt and road oil, aviation gasoline, kerosene, lubricants, petroleum coke, and the “other petroleum products” category. See Technical Notes,
Section 4.
Where shown, R = Revised data and (s) = Physical unit value less than 0.5 or Btu value less than 0.05.
gConventional hydroelectric power. For 1960 through 1989, includes pumped-storage hydroelectricity, which cannot be separately identified. Notes: Total end-use consumption estimates are the sum of the consumption estimates for the residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation sectors.
· Totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding. · The continuity of these data series estimates may be affected by changing data
sources and estimation methodologies. See the Technical Notes for each type of energy.
hThere is a discontinuity in this time series between 1988 and 1989 due to the expanded coverage of renewable energy sources beginning in 1989. Web Page: All data are available at https://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.php.
iWood, wood-derived fuels, and biomass waste. Prior to 2001, includes non-biomass waste. Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
