IELTS Pie Chart - Australian Household Energy Use

The first chart below shows how energy is used in an average Australian household. The second chart shows the greenhouse gas emissions which result from this energy use.

The first chart below shows how energy is used in an average Australian household. The second chart shows the greenhouse gas emissions which result from this energy use.

The two charts represent the use of energy by an average Australian household and emission of greenhouse gas from the use of energy respectively. Heating and water heating are the two main uses of energy and thus contributing to a significant proportion of emission as by-product from the consumption of energy.

Heating uses slightly less than a half the energy but leads to as less as 15% of the total emission of the greenhouse gas. Followed by heating is the water heating, consuming up to one-third of the energy and leading to 32% of the hazardous emission.

Strikingly, the refrigerator uses only 7% of the total energy but pollutes in the exactly double proportion. Meanwhile, the relation between use of energy and emission of harmful gas by other appliances also show similar results as only 15% of the energy is consumed while emitting almost a quarter of the total greenhouse gas.

The given 1st chart provide the information about how energy is used for different purposes in an average Australian household and 2nd chart shows the result I using such energy.

Overall,around quarter proportion of energy is used for appliances while cooking and stand by is used least approximately 10%.On the other hand green house are produced mainly due to hearing and cooling while stand by generate less greenhouse production.

In an Australian house energy used for water hearing is 23%it had slight growth of 2% to produce green house.energy consume for warm and cool is about quarter which almost led to collect near half proportion greenhouse gas.

The two pie charts demonstrate the energy consumption in an average Australian household and the greenhouse emissions due to this energy use. In general, it is clearly evident that the highest energy consumption is due to heating, whereas the highest greenhouse gas emission is as a result of water heating.

Heating makes up the largest proportion of household energy consumption (42%), whilst its effect on the greenhouse gas emission is only 15 percent. Heating water requires as much as 30 percent of the total energy expenditure, which has almost similar effect towards air pollution in the form of harmful gas emissions.

The rest of household energy expenditures is accountable for the refrigeration, lighting, cooling, and other appliances, totaling 28 percent. In contrast, such minority cases result in a significant proportion of hazardous gas discharge. Each of these minor cases in the energy consumption result in as much as more than half of the total greenhouse gas emissions.
