Worldwide Energy Demand Projected to Grow 50% in Next 20 Years

Worldwide energy demand will expand by more than 50 percent in the next 20 years, as long as there is no extended world economic decline, a 65-member task force of congressmen and energy experts says.

Demand will increase in industrialized nations by 23 percent and will more than double in the developing world, with Asia accounting for much of the growth, says a study performed by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a nonpartisan public policy research group.

The domestic nature of U.S. energy policy, which fails to consider international factors, makes the nation vulnerable to any event that disrupts energy supply or demand, the study says.

Energy supply will have to be ``expanded substantially'' to meet the rise in demand. The Persian Gulf will ``remain the key marginal oil supplier'' though all producing countries will have to contribute supply to the extent possible to meet increasing demand, it says.

Fossil fuels will continue to provide most of the global energy consumed, rising to 88 percent in 2020 from 86 percent last year, the study predicts.

The researchers expect a decline in nuclear power, and say that renewable energy, including hydropower, will increase in absolute terms, though it won't represent a greater market share. Oil will dominate global energy use and coal will continue its predominant role in electric power generation, while natural gas use will ``increase noticeably,'' they predict.

Senate Energy Committee Chairman Frank Murkowski, Republican of Alaska, who was one of the co-chairmen for the study, was releasing it in Washington this morning.
