Observation on data availability/gaps

World Data provides the percentage of renewable energy usage. Relevant calculations are needed to calculate the amount of renewable energy usage. Data by sector is not available. Worlddata.info receives this data from the US Office of Public Affairs (CIA) and will not make any presumptuous changes to it. No source cited for second indicator.
