    Since the oil price shocks of the 1970s no systematic study has been undertaken in Australia to investigate the pattern and the extent of energy use by different sectors of the economy. The Department of Energy and Resources publishes information of direct energy usage by sector but this gives no indication of changes in indirect energy usage, that is, changes in the amount of energy embodied in non-energy outputs. These changes were investigated in this study as well as the extent to which the changes were technology induced and demand induced. Two Australian energy input-output tables (1974-75 and 1980-81) were constructed to reflect the pre and post oil price shock situations. Indirect changes in energy use were found to be positive and offset negative changes in direct energy use. Demand induced changes were estimated to be greater than technology induced changes over the study period.
