- Australia is one of the world's largest producers and exporters of coal.
- Because Australia exports 22% of the global market share of thermal coal and consequently, our global contributions to climate change are significant.
- Most of Australia’s energy relies on traditional sources - non-renewable fossil fuels, coal and gas account for about 80% of our electricity generation.
To protect the people and places we love from the impacts of global warming we need to make more conscious decisions about our energy use.
More than one-third of our emissions come from our electricity consumption, so we can make huge emissions reductions by increasing the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses. Switching on to a clean energy future is as simple as switching off.
Together, through small changes to the way we use energy, we can make a big difference.
