The first chart below shows how energy is used in an average Australian household. The second charts shows the percentage of greenhouse gas emissions which result from this energy use.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
The charts compare the pattern of energy consumed by an average Australian household and the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from this consumption.
Overall, it is clear that Australians use energy the most for heating purposes, but the gas emissions are more from other energy consuming activities.
As per the charts, out of the total consumption of energy, almost three-forth is for heating purposes. Out of this, 42% is for heating and 30% is specifically for heating water. However, water heating results in 32% of the greenhouse gas emitted, whereas general heating contributes to only 15% of the total emission.
Around 28% of the energy is used for household activities other than heating. Of this, 15% is used for running miscellaneous gadgets, 7% for refrigeration, 4% for lighting and a mere 2% for cooling. Turning to the share of toxic gases these gadgets emit, the figure is recorded at 53%, which is almost double than the proportion of their energy consumption.
