Energy Use & Conservation in Australian Households

  • What proportion of the population are using energy saving lights?
  • How many households have a computer?
  • For how many months of the year are people using coolers?
  • How important is energy star rating compared with price or brand when people purchase white goods?

Find out in the new issue: Environmental Issues: energy use and conservation (cat. no. 4602.0.55.001).

Household energy use and conservation data is collected every three years. This latest survey was conducted in March 2008. Previous data were published in 2005, 2002, 1999 and 1994 and available in Environmental Issues: People's Views and Practices (cat. no. 4602.0).

New data items for 2008 include type and number of televisions and solar hot water system or solar panels used to generate electricity. Existing data items have been modified in the 2008 survey to provide more detailed information on lighting, energy sources and household appliances.
