What Will China’s Energy Demand Be In 20 Years? – Forbes

By the time your kindergartener is off to college and maybe even graduating, China will consume enough oil equivalent energy as the United States and European Union…combined.  In fact, according to the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook, published Nov. 8, China will consume more energy than India, Brazil and the EU

Over the next 25 years, 90% of the projected growth in global energy demand comes from non-core economies. China alone accounts for more than 30%, consolidating its position as the world’s largest energy consumer. In 2035, China consumes nearly 70% more energy than the U.S., which will be the second-largest consumer, even though by then per-capita energy consumption in China will still be less than half the level in the U.S.
