1) Condensate parts produced in connection with combined heat and power production were calculated with condensing power.
2) In addition to hard coal, coal includes blast furnace gas and coke oven gas and coke.
3) Mixed fuels (such as recycled fuel) are divided into renewable and fossil fuels in ratio to the fossil and biodegradable coal contained in them.
4) Other fossil fuels include plastics fuels and other waste fuels and the fossil part of mixed fuels.
5) Other renewable fuels comprise the bio part of mixed fuels and biogas.
6) Other energy sources include hydrogen, electricity, and reaction and secondary heat of industry.
7) Combined heat and power production includes pure combined production.
8) Reduction heat produced in connection with condensate production and combined heat and power production were calculated in separate production of heat.
