Source: Data updated from Uchiyama, 1996.Note: Analysed over a 30-year plant life, and showing primary fuel-use efficiency losses and transmission losses assuming greater distances for larger scale plants. Transport and distribution losses were taken as 4% for fossil fuel and bioenergy, 7% for nuclear.
