Energy demand worldwide is growing at its fastest pace, an exceptional performance driven by a robust global economy and increased demand for heating and cooling in some regions. Natural gas emerged as the fuel of choice, posting the most significant gains and accounting for about 45% of the rise in energy consumption. Gas demand growth was especially strong in the United States and China.
The cost differential between alternative renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy compared to coal or gas has been decreasing as new technical solutions improve the reliability of production and storage methods.
Within the coming years, clean energy sources are expected to grow to at least 50% of the supply from their current share of less than 25%.
