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.
