thesisposted on 2023-05-27, 08:32 authored by Arundell, LF
From 1950 to 1975, Tasmania's rate of energy consumption - particularly consumption of petroleum products -increased considerably. This increase was due to a seemingly unquestioning acceptance of relatively cheap energy, in forms which could supply the real and apparent needs of people and industries.Since the oil crises of the seventies, cheap and abundant energy supplies are no longer taken for granted. On present trends, new electricity sources will be needed, by the end of the century, to supplement Tasmania's hydro-electricity. Some means of replacing petroleum as a fuel for transport will be needed as oil reserves are used up.
