The global demand for energy is growing exponentially year on year as countries develop and their populations increase. This requires new solutions to keep up with demand. These rapidly changing trends in energy usage are shaping the way we power our everyday lives.
Despite this need for more energy resource, driven by growing economies in developing nations, the way we’re sourcing it has changed dramatically. This is largely due to the emergence of more efficient fuels and technologies.
However, there are still issues which need addressing. By using a ‘global energy architecture’ to measure these shifting trends, the global community can provide advice to those countries that are still reliant on outdated methods and fossil fuel usage. The Energy Architecture Performance Index is a way of measuring how effective countries are in their energy production and usage.
The infographic below provides an overview of emerging energy trends. It covers which countries are using them most effectively and offers an insight into the ways in which this is monitored.
