WEO 2011: Natural Gas and Renewable Energy to Dominate Growth
Natural Gas and Renewable Energy will dominate growth in world primary energy demand, according to data released today in the World Energy Outlook by the International Energy Agency (IEA).
Taken together, natural gas and renewable energy meet two-thirds of future additional global primary energy demand to 2035.
This growth is reflected in the share of power generation investment and production from the two categories. Together, natural gas and renewable energy account for approximately two-thirds of power generation investment.
Taken together, renewable energy technology investment accounts for more than double new investment into new coal generation plant.
