ELECTRICITY GENERATION AND SUPPLY

The paper reviews the reserves of fossil, nuclear and other sources of primary energy available for future use and the current consumption rates. Reference is made to the increasing conversion of abundant coal and nuclear fuels into electricity for delivery of energy and the saving of more scarce direct burning fuels (such as oil and gas) that can be achieved, particularly by greater use of electricity for transportation. The resources of the Australian electricity authorities are discussed to illustrate that they could readily cope with a substantial increase in load from battery electric vehicles and electric traction within their normal growth patterns. /Author/TRRL/
