** Geothermal, solar, wind, tide/wave/ocean. Totals in graph might not add up due to rounding.
Source: Renewables in global energy supply: An IEA Fact Sheet, page 3
Energy use per unit GDP1 and total energy use (PJ) for renewable and non-renewable energy sources. 1976-2004 (official Norwegian sustainable development indicator)
Systems boundaries & coverage, break down by institutional units, terminology
Classification of renewables
Coordination between renewables classification and product classifications (HS/CPA/SITC)
Information regarding the sources of the energy used – how it was produced
System boundary – GDP vs Kyoto related energy use
Definition of “renewables” – what to include?
Import of electricity (99% of Norwegian electricity production from hydro sources) – need to know production source of imported electricity
Are all own-use/auxillary energy included? Biogas from sewage treatment facilities (newer energy sources) – coverage?Challenges… - with renewables: - with Norwegian SDI:
*Some of the waste (the non-biodegradable part of the waste) is not considered renewables as such. However, proper breakdown between renewables and non-renewables is not always available.

Is this electricity-only vs. Stock and/or non-stock?
Then where to place hydro since that has water reserve basins that are stocks (in the sense of the word used here like solid biomass)?
Electricity-only renewable sources (Group I)
Multiple use renewable sources (electricity, heat, etc.)
Renewable sources without stock changes (Group II)
Renewable sources with stock changes (Group III)
“Beverages, spirits & vinegar” (chapter 22):
“Miscellaneous chemical products” (chapter 38):
Do we need?
Electricity from nuclear
Electricity from hydro
Electricity from coal
Electricity from waste
Is this practically possible?
From crops such as corn, sugar beet, palm oil, vegatable oil
From cellulosic biomass feedstock
