Energy demand to rise by 53 percent in next 25 years

We haven’t written much about energy here, but increasingly one cannot discuss development or even ICTs without factoring in energy availability and costs.

Global energy demand will increase 53 percent from 2008 through 2035, with China and India accounting for half of the growth, the United States Department of Energy said on Monday.

China and India will consume 31 percent of the world’s energy by 2035, up from 21 percent in 2008, the department’s International Energy Outlook projected. In 2035, Chinese energy demand will exceed that of the United States by 68 percent, it said.
