11/12/2009 Note: Re-issue of PDF and the The Gas Supply Chain page to correct one diagram contained within the Gas Supply Activities section 'The Gas Supply Chain', no other data is affected by these changes.



This publication presents information based on an alternative view of electricity supply and gas supply activity in Australia for the reference years 2006-07 to 2007-08.

Estimates are provided for:
    • Electricity supply, including generation, transmission, distribution, and on-selling activities;
    • Gas supply, including extraction, pipeline transport and distribution (including wholesaling and retail) activities.

The alternative view of electricity supply and gas supply presented in this publication are not industry estimates and data contained in
Australian Industry, 2007-08 (cat. no. 8155.0) are the official estimates. Alternative view estimates complement, rather than replace, existing ANZSIC-based electricity and gas industry statistics.

The estimates presented are derived from the Australian Bureau of Statistics' (ABS) Economic Activity Survey (EAS) and the Energy Supply Survey (ESS) (as part of the 2007-08 Annual Integrated Collection (AIC)). The data presented is based on the
Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification 2006 (ANZSIC).

The methodology for the alternative view presented in this publication is based on
Research Paper: Developing an Alternative View of Electricity and Gas Supply Activity in Australia (cat. no. 4647.0.55.001), released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on 26 February 2008.


This publication is available free on-line. A PDF publication is also available free on-line. Further information on the ABS and its products and services is available on the ABS website.
