Sažetak
Tourism is today one of the largest and most dynamically developing sectors and has significant growth rates every year. However, the growth of tourist spending and the increasing number of tourists contributes not only to the economic prosperity of a country, but also to energy consumption. The aim of this paper is to analyse the relationship between tourism (tourist nights) and energy consumption in the service sector of countries located in two different parts of the world (two groups of states of completely different historical, geographical and cultural characteristics), in the EU member states, comparing the obtained results with the states and territories of Australia. The survey covers a period of 16 years, from 2000 to 2015. It is methodologically oriented to the Pearson correlation coefficient analysis and univariate regression analysis of the relationship between the model variables. The results show that in most countries, there is a correlation between tourism and energy consumption, and that energy consumption is changing with the increase of tourist nights. Based on the results of the conducted analysis, there is a need and a demand for increasing energy efficiency as well as stronger use of renewable energy sources to enable sustainable development of the economic and ecological system. The empirical findings in this study can provide useful energy management guidelines to tourism policy makers, private and public business entities in the tourism sector and all other stakeholders.
