Coal primary supply (imported or domestically produced) is directly fed to consumption.
Sectors consume steam/thermal coal or coking coal (iron and steel sector). The coking coal transformation is captured in final energy demand.
Biomass primary supply (imported or domestically produced; in energy units) is directly fed to consumption.
Solid biomass can be used to produce liquid biofuels or electricity in energy transformation; or in direct combustion in final demand.
