The latest report produced by BP (Energy Outlook 2035) offers some clarity on the biggest global energy trends, as well as local ones in the following geographical areas: Africa, Brazil, China, the US and the rest of North America, India, the Middle East, the European Union and Russia.
World consumption of energy will increase by 41% between now and 2035. Of that increase, 95% is expected to come from emerging economies. Increased energy efficiency is one of the factors enabling moderation of that trend.
There is confidence that energy production will be capable of maintaining this rhythm of growth, largely thanks to new forms of energy.
