Global demand for energy is soaring and shows no signs of slowing down. Rapidly growing economies in developing nations and the growing usage of power-hungry tech in our daily lives points to demand speeding up in the coming decades. Our appetite for energy seems insatiable. Whether it’s to run the increasing amount of digital tech we use every day, or the rapidly growing economized of developing nations, we are all power-hungry.
And the demand for energy will continue to increase in the coming decades.
The US Energy Information Administration’s latest International Energy Outlook predicts that global energy demands will grow by 28% between 2015 and 2040.
But we can’t keep getting it from the same places. Global warming means sustainable energy holds the key to meeting future demand while polluting power sources are being scaled back.
