Renewable Energy Commercial Sector, Hydroelectric Power EIA, Monthly Energy Review (MER), Tables 7.2a–7.2c and A6. Calculated as total conventional hydroelectric power Note. Renewable Energy Production and Consump- minus conventional hydroelectric power in the electric tion. In Table 10.1, renewable energy consumption power and industrial sectors, multiplied by the fossil-fueled consists of: conventional hydroelectricity net generation plants heat rate. (converted to Btu using the fossil-fueled plants heat rate); geothermal electricity net generation (converted to Btu Commercial Sector, Geothermal using the geothermal plants heat rate), and geothermal Oregon Institute of Technology, Geo-Heat Center. Monthly heat pump and geothermal direct use energy; solar thermal estimates are created by dividing the annual estimates by the and photovoltaic electricity net generation (converted to number of days in the year and then multiplying by the Btu using the fossil-fueled plants heat rate), and solar number of days in the month. (The annual estimate for the thermal direct use energy; wind electricity net generation current year is set equal to that of the previous year.) (converted to Btu using the fossil-fueled plants heat rate); wood and wood-derived fuels consumption; biomass Commercial Sector, Wood waste (municipal solid waste from biogenic sources, 1973–1979: EIA, Estimates of U.S. Wood Energy landfill gas, sludge waste, agricultural byproducts, and Consumption from 1949 to 1981, Table A2. other biomass) consumption; fuel ethanol and biodiesel consumption; and losses and co-products from the 1980–1983: EIA, Estimates of U.S. Wood Energy production of fuel ethanol and biodiesel. Production is Consumption 1980-1983, Table ES1. assumed to equal consumption for all renewable energy sources except biofuels (biofuels production comprises 1984: EIA, CNEAF, estimate. biomass inputs to the production of fuel ethanol and 1985–1988: Values interpolated. biodiesel). 1989 forward: EIA, MER, Tables 7.4a–c; and EIA, CNEAF, estimates based on Form EIA-871, “Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey.” Data for wood Table 10.2a Sources consumption at commercial combined-heat-and-power (CHP) plants are calculated as total wood consumption at Residential Sector, Geothermal electricity-only and CHP plants (MER, Table 7.4a) minus Oregon Institute of Technology, Geo-Heat Center. Monthly wood consumption in the electric power sector (MER, Table estimates are created by dividing the annual estimates by the 7.4b) and at industrial CHP plants (MER, Table 7.4c). number of days in the year and then multiplying by the Annual estimates for wood consumption at other commer- number of days in the month.
