1SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTExecutive summaryThe following report deals with the energy consumption challenges by the appliances that we usein our daily life that has an impact on the environment in Western Australia (WA). The majorchallenge lies in the finding of ways that reconcile the demand as well as provide sustainabledevelopment with respect to energy services and global use of natural resources. Manyappliances are used at homes in WA like freezers, refrigerators, dishwashers, computers,television, air conditioners and swimming pool pumps. Among all these appliances, freezers andair conditioners consume most of the energy like100-400 watts with average of 200 watt andWattage is 1500-2000 respectively. Various organizations in Australia promote efficiency ofenergy so that there can be opportunities to decrease energy consumption. In this report, energyconsumption and its importance is highlighted as its use has a direct effect on the environmentand is envisaged through cutting of energy demand through cost cutting. This energyconsumption can be achieved through reduction of energy consumption by using less energyservice or by reducing amount of energy services. Latest technological aspects need to be takeninto consideration to reduce the energy consumption by Australian consumers so that there is lessenergy consumption and saves the cost of living. When there is less energy consumption, there isreduction in financial costs that conserve the home utilities for the electricity consumption.Therefore, the report concludes that efficient use of appliances by Australians can help in theprocess of energy consumption.
