Notes: Totals may not equal the sum of the components due to independent rounding.  There is a discontinuity in this time series between 1988 and 1989 due to the expanded coverage of non–electric utility use of wood and waste beginning in 1989.

The table and graph were updated on December 8, 2021.
Typically, there are one to two years between updates.
