Why is World Energy Demand Growing?

Global demand for energy grows and increases due to:

  1. Rapidly growing world population, estimated to reach 10 billion (10.000.000.000) by 2050, unless something drastic occurs.
  2. Growing middle class and an increase in wealth in countries like India and China
  3. Powerless countries and regions gaining access to energy through renewables, especially solar energy.

According to OPEC, even traditional oil producing countries have for long already been investing heavily into renewable energy sources, and have acknowledged the importance of reducing traditional energy sources including fossil fuels.

The faster the transition to renewable energy sources, the faster we can move away from fossil fuels that according to vast research around our globe are the main source of greenhouse gases that lead to the greenhouse effect that is raising the average temperatures on Earth.
