1.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. These estimates take into account energy efficiency improvements from advances in technology and operational improvements. The projected efficiency gains are not enough to completely offset increases in consumption.
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.

2.From the conditions of frontier life came intellectual traits of profound importance. The work of travelers along each frontier from colonial days onward describe certain common traits, and these traits have while softening down, still persisted as survivals in the place of their origin, even when a higher social organization succeeded. The result is that to the frontier the American intellect owes its striking characteristics. That coarseness and strength combined with acuteness and acquisitiveness; that practical, inventive turn of mind, quick to find expedients; that masterful grasp of material things, lacking in the artistic but powerful to effect great ends; that restless, nervous energy; that dominant individualism, working for good and for evil, and withal that buoyancy and exuberance which comes with freedom—these are traits of the frontier, or traits called out elsewhere because of the existence of the frontier.

  1. 1st:
    The projected values of energy consumption in Australia by 2030 is 21 percent but not enough to compensate the efficient gains this can be overcome by bringing LNG for ease of transportation.

  2. As per current growing population and GDP, Australia projected to increase its energy consumption by 21% in 2030, however oil and gas industry together along with transportation system, being major energy consumers, disrupts this projection.

  3. Australia is regarded as energy consumption, and efficiency improvements from advances in technologies and operations has made it major energy consumers,moreover by the year 2030 energy consumption will grow by 5.4%, which gives greater impact on the transportation.

  4. The energy consumption will be raised by Australia due to increase in population and increasing demand for industry is the main reason for this phenomenon.

  5. 1. The projected increase in energy consumption of Australia is due to rise in energy demands of industrial and
    transportation sector coupled with increase in population, which could not be set off by advanced and improved technologies.
    2. The work of the travelers had revealed the traits of the frontier life which survives even today and these traits highly influenced the American intellectuals.

  6. Experts say that children should be assigned with daily house hold work and should be paid for the tasks, doing this children will learn to respect the job for which they are paid and also know value of money.

  7. Energy consumption by the year 2030 may not completely be suffixed with all the advancements and improvements in technology because of two prime consumers – industries and transportation in Australia.

  8. 1. Due to the increasing demand from industries such as oil, gas and transport, Australia’s overall energy consumption is expected to increase by 21 percent in the coming decade.

    2. Although intellect has a significant role in the various aspects of frontier life, this life also imposes certain valuable characteristics which usually comes with freedom.
