The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (www.eia.gov) new Today in Energy brief looks at the expected growth in global energy demand over the next several decades, led by energy consumption in China and India.
“The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s recently released International Energy Outlook 2016 (IEO2016) projects that world energy consumption will grow by 48% between 2012 and 2040. Most of this growth will come from countries that are not in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), including countries where demand is driven by strong economic growth, particularly in Asia. Non-OECD Asia, including China and India, accounts for more than half of the world’s total increase in energy consumption over the projection period.”—EIA
