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.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant
Write at least 150 words.
The percentage of household energy use in Australia:

The percentage of greenhouse gas produced in Australia:

 
The given information reveals the main activities that consume electricity in a common family unit from Australia and their correspondent environmental effects.
Overall, it can be clearly seen that the major consumer is the energy source to heat water and to operate various devices, while the leading cause of pollution generated by this domestic energy consumption is represented by the process of heating and cooling.
Regarding the consumption of energy, which is illustrated in the first pie chart, the processes of heating the water and utilizing gadgets account for almost a half (47%) of the total amount of the energy used. These are followed by heating and cooling, which represent exactly a fifth, and by various forms of cooling and illumination that comprise 23% taken together. In contrast, an insignificant amount (5%) of energy is used when people cook or when the appliances are in the sleep mode.
The primary cause of the greenhouse effect, which is depicted in the second pie chart, is due to heating and cooling, with just under two-fifths (38%) of gas emissions caused by it. Similarly, the water heating and the usage of electronic instruments consist of 31% of the pollution. In stark contrast, the so called stand by mode is the most environmentally friendly, with only 3% of gas emissions.
