OTHER RENEWABLE ENERGY TARGETS (continued) 1 Colombia’s target is to be met by “non-conventional sources of energy”. 2 India does not classify hydropower installations larger than 25 MW as renewable energy sources. Therefore, national targets and data for India do not include hydropower facilities >25 MW. India 2014–2015 targets are for the national fiscal year which runs from April 2014 through March 2015. 3 Pumped hydro plants are not energy sources but a means of energy storage. As such, they involve conversion losses and are powered by renewable or non-re- newable electricity. Pumped storage is included here because it can play an important role as balancing power, in particular for variable renewable resources. 4 Nigeria’s target excludes hydropower plants over 30 MW. 5 Russia’s targets exclude hydropower plants over 25 MW. 6 It is not always possible to determine whether municipal solid waste (MSW) data include non-organic waste (plastics, metal, etc.) or only the organic biomass share. Uganda utilises predominantly organic waste. 7 The energy output of heat pumps is at least partially renewable on a final energy basis, which is why they are included in this table.
