Australian energy resource assessment

24 Mar 2010

This report examines the nation's identified and potential energy resources ranging from fossil fuels and uranium to renewables. {C}

The assessment reviews the factors likely to influence the use of Australia's energy resources to 2030, including the technologies being developed to extract energy more efficiently and cleanly from existing and new energy sources.

Australia's energy consumption pattern is expected to change significantly by 2030. While fossil fuels (coal, oil and increasingly gas) will continue to dominate the energy mix, renewable energy sources, notably wind, are expected to become increasingly more significant.

Chapter 1 is an executive summary of key assessment findings. Chapter 2 presents an integrated synthesis of all Australia resources and markets. Individual resource chapters each consider world and Australian resources and markets, examines key factors in utilising the resource, and the resource and market outlook to 2030.
