Change in total primary energy demand

Consumption of all modern fuels continues to grow over the coming 25 years in the World Energy Outlook central scenario, although growth in coal is cut to 0.2% per year on average. Oil demand rises steadily to 103.5 mb/d in 2040; gas consumption rises by nearly 50%, overtaking coal. But it is renewable energy that is the major growth story. In the power sector, 60% of all capacity additions to 2040 are from renewables.
