    World Energy Demand Doubled In 2018

    Global Energy & CO2 Status Report; The latest trends in energy and emissions in 2018 Global trends

    April 2019 (International Energy Agency)

    Global energy consumption in 2018 increased [2.3%, nearly] twice the average rate of growth since 2010, driven by a robust global economy [which expanded by 3.7%] and higher heating and cooling needs in some parts of the world. Demand for all fuels increased, led by natural gas [which was 45% of growth], even as solar and wind posted double digit growth. Higher electricity demand was responsible for over half of the growth in energy needs. Energy efficiency saw lacklustre improvement. As a result of higher energy consumption, CO2 emissions rose 1.7% last year and hit a new record…

    …Coal-fired power generation continues to be the single largest emitter, accounting for 30% of all energy-related carbon dioxide emissions…China, the United States, and India together accounted for nearly 70% of the rise in energy demand…Weather conditions last year were also responsible for almost a fifth of the increase in global energy demand as average winter and summer temperatures in some regions approached or exceeded historical records. Cold snaps drove demand for heating and, more significantly, hotter summer temperatures pushed up demand for cooling…Renewables, which grew by over 4%, met around one-quarter of the growth in total primary energy demand. This was largely due to expansion in electricity generation, where renewables accounted for 45% of the growth in 2018…” click here for more
