Production of energy from renewable sources has remained stable over the period 1990/91 - 2001/02.
Renewable energy sources constituted around 5% of primary energy consumption in 2003-04. This proportion has also not changed significantly over the period of 12 years. Biomass and hydroelectricity together accounted for 94 per cent of renewable electricity consumption in Australia in 2003-04.
Human Settlements — Pressures created by human settlements on the environment - Energy use
The majority of energy used by human settlements is derived from non-renewable sources. As the stock levels of non-renewable energy resources decrease, thus increasing the cost per unit energy, the use of renewable energy sources becomes more important.
Other indicators for this issue:
- HS-31 National energy use
- HS-33 Energy use by sector
- HS-34 Energy use in transport
- HS-37 Energy use per capita and per unit of GDP
- LD-11 Total energy value of land-based energy fuels from non-living sources produced in Australia
- CO-10 Total energy production from the Australian marine environment
Human Settlements — Services provided by the environment to human settlements - Renewable energy
Human settlements rely on high inputs of energy from the environment in order to maintain the living standards and quality of life of their inhabitants. Renewable energy sources are important as they are potentially sustainable.
Human Settlements — Services provided by the environment to human settlements - Forest products
Human settlements rely on high inputs of energy from the environment in order to maintain the living standards and quality of life of their inhabitants. Renewable energy sources, including firewood and other forestry products are important as they are potentially sustainable.
Other indicators for this issue:
- LD-09 Average tonnage and value of other (non-food) agricultural products per hectare of land under production
