Diagram 17.1 presents an overview of energy supply and use in Australia for 2000-01. Australia's total energy supply comprises primary energy production, plus imports of energy, plus stock changes. In 2000-01, Australia produced 15,216 petajoules (PJ) of primary energy products, and imported 1,188 PJ of energy products, mainly crude oil.

Australia's supply of primary energy products can be exported, converted into other energy products, used by Australian households and industry, or stockpiled for future consumption. Most of the energy produced in Australia is exported (11,627 PJ in 2000-01), the bulk of which is black coal and uranium. In 2000-01, 4,266 PJ of primary energy was transformed into 2,601 PJ of derived energy products. Conversion, distribution and transmission losses accounted for 1,665 PJ of energy use. Households and industry used 3,375 PJ of energy, about one-fifth of the total energy supply.
