Predictions for Energy in the Future

By Rhyan Montgomery

A study by the oil company BP says that energy consumption will be higher in 2030 than today. The study estimates that energy consumption has growth by 45% in the last 20 years. And in the next 20 years the growth will be estimated at 19%. They forcast that the growth will be 1.7% every year from 2010 to 2030. Other countries outside the OECD predict their growth to rise by 68% by 2030, or even more. That would average at a growth of 2.6% each year after 2010. Thats alot of energy consumption!!
