2.

Australia is projected to increase its final energy consumption by a total of 21 percent between 2014 and 2030. With GDP forecast to increase by 2.7 percent per year on average, and an expected population of 30 million by 2030, the nation is projected to require an additional 873 petajoules of energy.3 This roughly equates to 75 percent of the energy consumed for all road transport in Australia today

The biggest driver of this growth in energy consumption is expected to be increased demand from industry, led by the oil and gas sector. Energy consumption in that sector is projected to grow by 5.4 percent per year, to around 480 petajoules in 2030. This is driven by the quadrupling of Australia’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) capacity, which will be completed in the next few years. A second driver of overall consumption growth will be energy used for transport, which is forecast to grow by 0.8 percent per year on average to a total of around 1,800 petajoules in 2030. This is the net outcome of growth in the economy and population, partially offset by energy efficiency improvements.
