  1. 2. Asia Energy Mix <ul><li>Coal </li></ul><ul><li>Oil </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Gas </li></ul><ul><li>Hydro </li></ul><ul><li>Nuclear </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable Energy </li></ul>
  2. 3. Australia Energy Consumption <ul><li>Black Coal </li></ul><ul><li>Brown Coal </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Gas </li></ul><ul><li>Oil </li></ul><ul><li>Renewables </li></ul>
  3. 4. Australia’s Energy Policy <ul><li>Australia’s Government energy policy has </li></ul><ul><li>established three primary objectives :- </li></ul><ul><li>The provision of a efficient and reliable energy service </li></ul><ul><li>Responsible development of natural resources and technology </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce effects of global environmental impacts </li></ul>
  4. 5. Australia’s Energy Policy <ul><li>Minimum Renewable Energy Target of 20% in 2020 </li></ul><ul><li>Emissions Trading in 2010 </li></ul>
  5. 6. Energy Efficiency in Australia <ul><li>Australia’s energy intensity decreases 1.1% annually </li></ul><ul><li>Its performance lags other developed nations. </li></ul>
  6. 7. Energy Efficiency in Australia <ul><li>Its energy intensity improvement for manufacturing sector is the lowest </li></ul>
  7. 8. Energy Efficiency in Australia <ul><li>For Residential and Commercial sectors :- </li></ul><ul><li>Improve market signals and arrangement for demand side management (DSM) </li></ul><ul><li>Have minimum standards for used appliances (MEPS) </li></ul><ul><li>Providing information on energy performance of buildings </li></ul><ul><li>Disclosing energy performance information in leases and sales agreements </li></ul><ul><li>Australian Building Greenhouse Rating Scheme (ABGRS) </li></ul>
  8. 9. Energy Efficiency in Australia <ul><li>For Transport sector :- </li></ul><ul><li>National Average Fuel Consumption agreement for car industry </li></ul><ul><li>Reform of the fuel excise system </li></ul><ul><li>Travel Demand Management (TDM) programme </li></ul>
  9. 10. Energy Efficiency in Australia <ul><li>For Industrial sector :- </li></ul><ul><li>Mandatory Energy Efficiency Opportunity Assessment ( for large energy users (>0.5 petajoules per annum) </li></ul><ul><li>Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) expanded to include some industrial equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Businesses with EPA licenses to report their energy usage patterns and strategies in usage reduction and management </li></ul>
  10. 11. Energy Efficiency in Australia <ul><li>Promote actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions </li></ul><ul><li>Greater end-user participation through energy reduction activities </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Efficiency Best Practice (EEBP) programme </li></ul>
  11. 12. Conclusion and Recommendations <ul><li>Climate Change will be a big issue as global CO2 emissions will increase 43% by 2035 </li></ul><ul><li>Oil prices will increase in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>Australia too dependent on oil, coal and gas which contributes the most CO2 although it has good energy security </li></ul><ul><li>Domestic oil production will decrease more </li></ul>
  12. 13. Conclusion and Recommendations <ul><li>Stop building and de-commission existing coal-fired power plants </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce 50% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 </li></ul><ul><li>Promotion of energy efficiency and renewable energy (extend/improve MRET) </li></ul><ul><li>Transit from high carbon economy to a clean sustainable future </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Clean Technology will also create new jobs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sustainable development (less dependence on fossil fuels </li></ul></ul>
