Global Trends in Power Generation

The Non-Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries will exhibit a year-on-year growth of 􂀀% in energy consumption (􂀀% of the global growth) in 2015.

Fuelled by the global GDP growth, the energy demand is predicted to grow by roughly 􂀀% annually in the non-OECD countries as compared to 􂀀% in the OECD countries.

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region will witness the highest growth, accounting for 􂀀% of the energy production by 2030.

The annual energy consumption of OECD countries is likely to be just 􂀀% higher in 2030 than that in 2011 (􂀀% per annum).

About this report

This research service explores the rising energy demand across the globe and analyzes the key energy resources that will be increasingly used, up until 2035. It explores the drivers and restraints of key energy sources such as coal, gas, and renewables, and features a short discussion of the key geographical trends influencing the growth of the energy market. A brief snapshot of the utilization of gas plants in Europe, focused mainly on the United Kingdom and Germany, is followed by a summary of the key findings of the top three energy resource markets, namely, coal, gas, and renewables.
