Promoting sustainable energy consumption

Supporting sustainable energy future
Promoting rational use of energy

Over the next 18 years, according to an OECD report (2002), global energy use is expected to expand by more than 50%, and by more than 100% in China, east Asia and the former Soviet Union. Transport is by then expected to account for more than half of global oil demand. The non-renewable fossil fuel resource base is expected to be sufficient to meet demand to 2020 though problems beyond that point are foreseen for natural gas and possibly oil.
