How much energy is consumed in your state or territory?

This energy consumption data is compiled by ABARES using the Australian Government's National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) database as the primary data source, supplemented by data from other sources, as well as estimation and modelling for the sectors not covered by NGER.

Net energy consumption shown here is a net concept which avoids double counting. It comprises the consumption of all fuels less the consumption of derived fuels.

Data for ACT is not available separately and is included in NSW.
