Australian energy intensity and energy productivity

The figure shows Australian gross domestic product, energy consumption, energy intensity and energy productivity as an index from 1978–79 to 2018–19. As economic growth in Australia over recent decades has generally outpaced growth in energy consumption, the Australian economy has tended towards lower energy intensity and higher energy productivity over time.
Energy productivity improved by 1.3% in 2018–19 and by 19% over the past ten years.
