The table gives statistical information about the amount of usage of energy (The amount of used energy) in 2000 and the percentages of increase in comparison with the year before(the growth up of energy utilization) in various countries namely the USA, Japan and Australia.
It is clear from the chart that overall (the total) consumption of the USA was the highest while the lowest figure was Japan’s. It is also noticeable while the proportions of increase of Japan and Australia are relatively high, the figure for the USA was very low. (It could be seen that there was the highest figure of utilized energy derived from America, followed by the lower figure of Japan and Australia (about 1420, 403 and 92 millions of tons of oil equivalents respectively). Whereas the proportion of growth up of energy in Japan occupied the greatest position with 42.5% compared to 21.5% of Australia and only 13% America.
Japan was the country with the highest increase in oil usage(utilized oil) with 39 percents compared to 28 percents of Australia. The amount of oil used (oil utilized) in Transport by Japanese citizens was approximately 4 times higher than by the Australian people, with 96 million of tons in comparison with 25 million of tons. Likewise, the energy consumption in other sectors in Australia was only one-fifth of the figure for Japan in 2000, showing growth by 16 percents, which is significantly lower than the rate of increase of the Asian country.
Moreover, while industry in Japan and Australia occupied the highest position of figure of utilized energy with 159 and 36 millions of tons of oil respectively compared to just three fifth and 30% respectively lower than in the aspect of transport and 10% and 14% lower than in the aspect of others , the term of transport in America reached the peak at 565 millions of tons, followed by the terms of others and industry (roughly 435 and 420 millions of tons respectively).
The USA seemed to be the biggest consumer of oil in the list with the lowest proportion of increase. The major use of energy of the American was in Transport, with 565 million of tons, which was equivalent to 122 percents of the figure for 1999. Meanwhile, the figures for industry and other sections were almost the same at about 420 millions of tons.
In the other, there was the greatest proportion of growth up of utilized energy derived from transport in America and Japan with 22% and 52% respectively compared to only 0.9% and 39% respectively in the term of industry and 15% and 46$ respectively in the term of others, whereas the term of industry in Australia obtained the highest position of figure of utilized energy compared to 23% and 16% in the term of transport and others respectively.
