  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Australia is a constitutional monarchy with a federal division of powers. The country is made up of six states and two territories. The three most important states are New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. Energy is a field of competence shared between the Federal Government (offshore exploitation, gas, and electricity interconnections between states) and the states ...

  • Energy Supply


    Australia is one of just a few countries that have vast amounts of energy resources of all kinds. It has 68 Gt of proven economic coal reserves, to which are added 76 Gt of lignite reserves. Coal reserves under active development account for 28 Gt and are concentrated in two states: 37% in New South Wales (primarily steam coal) and 60% in Queensland (coking coal). Lignite resources are ...

  • Energy Prices


    The cost of electricity for households is 6% less in Australia than in the European Union, and substantially lower than in other OECD countries. Electricity prices for industry have been almost equivalent between Australia and the European Union since 2012. Industry and household electricity prices rose by more than 100% between 2007 and 2013 and were decreasing until 2015. They have been ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption is relatively high, at about 5.3 toe, i.e. 70% higher than in the European Union. Per capita electricity consumption is 9 344 kWh (2017).

    Total energy consumption increased regularly between 2000 and 2008, at an average pace of 2%/year. Between 2008 and 2015, it remained roughly stable and has increased by 1.4%/year since then to 129 Mtoe in ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the latest forecasts published in 2014 by the Australian Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics (BREE), total primary energy consumption is projected to grow by around 1%/year over the period 2015-2050. The share of coal in primary energy consumption is projected to fall from 27% in 2013 to 23% by 2050. Oil will remain an important energy source at 45%, and gas at 26%. ...
