This report presents up-to-date projections of energy trends through to 2035, including fuel-type, sector, region and scenario analyses. According to the IEA's models, the “center of gravity” is moving towards Asia with China dominating the picture, but India becoming the principal engine of growth in energy demand around 2020. Southeast Asia likewise emerges as an expanding demand center. The United States continues its march towards meeting all of its energy needs from domestic resources by 2035, and Brazil’s abundant and diverse energy resources underpin a projected 80% increase in its energy use. Renewables account for nearly half of the increase in global power generation to 2035, with variable sources—wind and solar photovoltaics—making up 45% of the expansion in renewables. China is expected to lead the charge in renewable energy development, adding more capacity than the European Union, the United States and Japan combined.
