The article explores the idea of Australia as a new type of energy superpower through a sustainable energy approach, energy efficiency, and the viability of renewables in delivering base-power loads. According to the author, the country's base load power requirements may be much higher than they need to be, and could be reduced by better demand management. Energy efficiency savings are the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse emissions, not only for industry and government sectors, but for individual who will together determine the direction as a nation in energy consumption.
