Energy demand to increase 50% in 25 years

World energy consumption is projected to increase by 57 percent
from 2004 to 2030 according to a new analysis by the US Energy Information Agency. The biggest increase, 95%, will be in the lesser developed nations, compared with an increase of 24% in the industrialized countries.

Note that the forecast is for growth in use of fossil fuels to outstrip that for renewables and nuclear.
