MAIN FINDINGS AND INTRODUCTION
Energy is of vital importance to policy makers and has both economic and environmental dimensions. Demand for energy products has risen in recent years, driven by growing exports and domestic use, which can in turn affect the price and security of supply. The Energy Account Australia (EAA), provides statistics to monitor changes over time in the supply and use of energy within Australia, both from an economic and an environmental perspective. The EAA forms part of a suite of environmental-economic accounts being developed for Australia.
The energy data contained in this publication are produced in accordance with the principles outlined within the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting for Energy (SEEA-E) - a satellite system of the System of National Accounts (SNA).
The diagram below presents a graphical view of Australia's supply and use system of energy. Further detail on supply and use frameworks is contained in the Explanatory Notes.
Physical supply is composed of:
Physical use is composed of:
The data on physical supply and use of energy products are primarily derived from the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences’ (ABARES) Australian Energy Statistics (AES) - Energy Update 2011. ABS uses the SEEA-E to transform AES into a framework consistent with the SNA, enabling linkages between energy supply, energy use and Australian National Accounts. A more detailed description of the data sources and processes used to develop the EAA is contained in the Explanatory Notes.
This edition of the Energy Account Australia consists of three sections; Explanatory Notes; Glossary; Abbreviations and a set of data cubes. Each section begins with an introduction and contains commentary to highlight key data and assist with interpretation of tables, which are interspersed within the section commentary.
The physical energy supply and use sections present commentary and summary graphs on the flow of energy through the Australian economy for 2008-09 and 2009-10. The complete physical supply and use tables for Australia can be found in the data cubes. Tables present volumes of energy supplied, used and energy losses by industry and energy product.
The energy intensity section presents commentary and summary graphs on the amount of energy industries consumed to produce one unit of economic output.
