1.5 Trillion Dollars per yr Needs to be Invested in Global Energy Infrastructure to meet Future Energy Demand

The International Energy Agency estimates that to meet growing energy demand, energy investment through to the year 2035, will need to average 1.5 trillion per year*. To help companies and governments meet this growing energy demand, NRG Expert has created a database of vital energy statistics for each country, and customized databases for marketing and planning purposes.

Why is Meeting Rising Energy Demand So Important?

Since the cost of energy has become a significant factor in the performance of the economy, the management of energy resources has become critical to the success of many countries.

Interesting Energy Statistics and Data      

Rosie Seldon from NRG Expert, the energy intelligence company, reviews the Global energy industry to reveal some interesting energy statistics:                                         

  • 53% – global energy demands to grow by 2050
  • 9 billion – this is the expected size of the population by 2040. Energy supply must increase to meet this population growth
  • Wind Power is now the fastest growing renewable energy source — 40.5 gigawatts of new wind power was brought on line in 2011, bringing the global total capacity up to 238 GW
  • 80% of global energy demand today is supplied by coal, oil and gas – the ‘fossil fuels’
  • $6.5bn of venture capital and private equity capital has been invested in energy efficiency since 2007
  • The US has regained top spot from China as the biggest investor in clean energy in 2011, according to global rankings.
  • 400%– the percentage by which western countries’ electricity prices will soar in the next 30 years if electricity grids do not become smart grids
  • Energy statistics on over 210 countries- available in the NRG Expert Almanac 

Current Trends In The Industry

NRG Expert’s research reveals that as an energy demand will outweigh current supply in the future, there is a need to:

  • Minimise Wastage
  • Reduce harmful emissions
  • Integrate renewable energy sources into the mix
  • Remove energy regulation to increase supply
  • Increase privatization to meet growing energy demands

Energy Statistics

Many energy companies are reviewing the global market situation to work out how to take advantage of the opportunities for growth. As energy data is often difficult to obtain, NRG Expert have pulled together a vast wealth of energy statistics to create a product called the NRG Expert Almanac. They have collected millions of lines of energy data from 100s of trusted sources . NRG Expert can provide vital energy statistics for each country and produce customised databases, an invaluable resource for those looking to capitalize on the growth in energy demand.
