Asia/Pacific Energy Use To Double North America’s by 2030
The United Nations estimates that world population will grow past nine billion persons by 2050, or more than 2.3 billion more than now.
With the Asia/Pacific region accounting for much of the growth in human population — and growth in energy consumption — by 2030 the demand for electricity and energy use in the area will nearly quadruple from 1990 levels.
By 2030, Asia/Pacific is expected to use 285.7 quadrillion BTUs of energy annually, up from 74.2 quadrillion BTU in 1990, and nearly double the projected 148.9 quadrillion BTU projected to be used by 2030 in North America, according to the International Energy Outlook.
