Statistics in this chapter refer to all those businesses engaged in electricity supply activities in 2006-07 and 2007-08.
Estimates for total electricity supply by all businesses are provided and these are separated into businesses that are engaged only in the supply of electricity (but not gas) and businesses that supply both electricity and gas. Importantly, for businesses that supply both electricity and gas, the estimates are for the electricity supply component of the business activity and exclude the gas supply component(footnote 1) .
Estimates for 2007-08 are also provided for electricity supply by activity.
These activities include:
- Electricity generation
- Electricity transmission
- Electricity distribution
- On selling electricity and electricity market operation
Further information on these activities can be found in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification, 2006
(cat. no. 1292.0).
The commentary provided refers mainly to the tables in this chapter, and to the figures in Chapter 1. All value data are shown at current prices. The glossary provides definitions for terms used.
1 The gas supply component of business activity is accounted for in Chapter 3: Gas Supply Activities. <back
