Supplementary notes

* The source adds the following information: "Numbers here represent primary energy measured in TWh/yr. By this measure most of the primary bioenergy resource is currently used to generate electricity. However biomass power plants have efficiencies around 35% or lower, meaning that electricity from biomass will be a lower percentage when measured in final energy terms. Biomethane is measured in terms of the energy content of the gas itself rather than the original biomass feedstocks."
