Australia - Doing More With Less

Energy data for the 3rd quarter of this year is now available. The Conversation published this comparison of the same period for each year. The red dots show the average electricity use.

Not only did we stop increasing our energy use each year, but we actually turned it around to use less electricity - a big achievement especially considering the growth in population. Our power usage was on track to be 25 by this year, but we brought it down to 21.

Home solar power and energy efficiency are thought to be the main reasons behind this amazing achievement. Well done Australia - keep up the good work. :)
