Global energy mix shifts to lower carbon fuels

  • Renewables and nuclear see strong growth, contributing close to 40 percent of incremental energy supplies to meet demand growth
  • Natural gas grows the most of any energy type, reaching a quarter of all demand
  • Oil will continue to play a leading role in the world’s energy mix, with growing demand driven by commercial transportation needs and feedstock requirements for the chemicals industry
  • Coal use remains significant in parts of the world, but loses substantial share as the world transitions toward energy sources with lower emissions
