Global efficiency limits demand growth

  • Without efficiency improvements, global energy demand would increase significantly 
  • Actual demand is expected to increase about 25 percent from 2015 to 2040, reflecting large savings due to efficiency improvements 
  • Demand growth will come from non-OECD nations, where energy use will rise about 40 percent, led by Asia Pacific
  • Demand in Africa, Latin America and the Middle East will also grow strongly
