The Outlook for Energy: A View to 2030 The Outlook for Energy: A View to 2030 1 In our Outlook for Energy – A View to 2030 , we see many hopeful things – economic recovery and growth, improved living standards and a reduction in poverty, and promising new energy technologies. But we also see a tremendous challenge: how to meet the world’s growing energy needs while also reducing the impact of energy use on the environment. As the Outlook shows, ExxonMobil expects that global energy demand in 2030 will be almost 35 percent higher than in 2005, even accounting for the recession that dampened energy demand in 2009. Other key findings include: •± Growth±will±be±led±by±rapid±expansion±in±non-OECD± countries such as China and India, where energy usage will rise by about 65 percent. •± Demand±will±be±particularly±intense±for±electric±power± generation, which will comprise 40 percent of global energy demand by 2030. •± Oil±and±natural±gas±will±remain±essential,±but±other±sources± including nuclear and renewables (e.g., wind, solar and biofuels) will play an expanded role. The future of energy is directly linked to the future well-being and prosperity of the world’s people. Today, about 1.5 billion people – a quarter of the world’s population – lack access to electricity. Even more lack modern cooking and heating fuels. Expanding access to energy – and the opportunities it affords – should be a shared global goal. Our energy and environmental challenges are intertwined and their scale is enormous. Today, energy use per person around the world varies dramatically but equates to an average of 200,000 British thermal units (BTUs) a day. Globally, that translates to 15 billion BTUs every second. ExxonMobil believes that meeting future energy needs while also reducing environmental risk will require an integrated set of solutions that includes: •± Accelerating±energy±efFciency,±which±tempers±demand±and± saves emissions •± Expanding± all economic energy sources, including oil and natural gas
