The following renewable energy projects are included: all biomass, geothermal, and wind generation projects of more than 1 MW; all hydropower projects of between 1 and 50 MW; all solar power projects, with those less than 1 MW estimated separately and referred to as small distributed capacity; all ocean energy projects; and all biofuel projects with an annual production capacity of 1 million litres or more. Where totals do not add up, this is due to rounding. For more information about the investment stages in this table, see Sidebar 5 in GSR 2013. Source: See Endnote 11 for this section.
