Annual Stationary Energy Consumption
The stacked bar chart displayed on this page shows our annual stationary energy consumption in gigajoules (GJ) for the years 2010 to 2017. Each year's consumption data are divided into the different fuel types used by the university, which include: natural gas, electricity sourced from the grid, diesel, LPG and renewables (solar PV).
The chart highlights that energy consumption is dominated by natural gas combustion, this is due to the large gas powered trigeneration system that operates at the Melbourne (Bundoora) campus. Total stationary energy consumption varies over the years from 594,534 GJ in 2010, 477,938 GJ in 2011, 566,575 GJ in 2012, 612,558 GJ in 2013, 471,345 GJ in 2014, 527,231 GJ in 2015, 518,926.9 GJ in 2016 and 547,282 GJ in 2017.
