Electricity demand on the skids?

An ESAA report confirms residential energy consumption in Australia has flat-lined, despite reports to the contrary, as Australia's growing economy becomes less electricity intensive.

Introduction from the editor: Australian electricity demand has been flat-lining across Australia since 2007-08 yet we have great difficulty determining the precise causes. Unfortunately the electricity authorities – the Australian Energy Market Operator, Western Power and NT’s Power and Water – do not publish electricity demand data to a level of detail and in a manner readily interrogated by the general public that would enable us to isolate potential causes relatively easily.
