COAL Coal is the world's most abundant and widely distributed fossil fuel. 85% of coal Reserves are concentrated in six countries 23% of primary global energy needs are met by coal Around 138 million tonnes of saleable coal was produced in NSW during 2008-09 NSW Coal Production was valued at over 19 billion dollars in 2008-09 NSW depends on coal for 90% of it’s electricity
GLOBAL COAL PRODUCTION Source: BP Statistical Review of World Energy June 2009
NSW Power Stations emit almost 60 million Tonnes of CO2 per Year
The use of geothermal energy for electricity generation and direct use applications is new technology to Australia Requires successful technical and commercial demonstration However in the nine years since the first Geothermal Exploration Licence (GEL) was granted in Australia, interest and activity in the geothermal sector has increased dramatically
Direct Use Geothermal Lower heating costs by reducing electricity, oil or gas consumption; Reduced emissions of CO2 and oxides of nitrogen and sulphur Minimal ongoing costs after installation. Heat pumps can be used almost anywhere in the world to provide heating and cooling for buildings
Geothermal Heat Pumps globally are the fastest-growing means of exploiting geothermal energy
