ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication represents the third edition of the ABS Energy Account, and responds to ongoing demand for information about energy products within Australia's economy. In particular, it contains estimates of the physical supply and use of energy products in Australia over the period 2001-02 to 2006-07, and introduces experimental monetary use estimates in respect of 2004-05.
It also provides a time series of energy intensity measures for selected Australian industries. Finally, it includes energy resource stock estimates for the calendar years 2002 to 2007 in both physical and monetary terms.
The outputs contained in this publication follow the general principles outlined within the Handbook of National Accounting: Integrated Environmental and Economic Accounting (SEEA) - a satellite system of the International System of National Accounts 1993 (SNA). They serve to integrate environmental and economic data in order to overcome the tendency to analyse economic and environmental issues independently of each other.
Suggestions or comments on this publication would be appreciated and should be sent to the Director, Environmental Accounts and Water, Australian Bureau of Statistics, Locked Bag 10, Belconnen, ACT 2616.
