Global energy use will grow by more than 50% by 2040

Global energy use will grow by more than 50% by 2040. There has never been a more important time to discuss energy efficiency.
Africa has its ‘big 5’ (elephants, rhinos, buffalo, lions and leopards for the record). Energy efficiency also has its big five – steel, chemicals, cement, pulp and paper, and aluminum. Collectively they account around 60% of the world’s industrial energy consumption.
These sectors have been dealing with energy efficiency for years, and have strong measures in place to reduce energy use as a matter of pure economics. Improvements since 1975 have helped reduce the energy needed to produce a ton of crude steel by nearly half.
But despite these gains, industry is using a larger share of the world’s energy – up to around 25% in 2011 compared to 19% in 1990. And aside from the big five, a large number of less energy intense industries are discovering that doing more with less isn’t just a cost advantage, it’s a competitive imperative.
Food and beverage customers want to know how much energy went into their orange juice, not just how many calories will come out of it. Pharmaceutical companies, whose biggest priority was always getting drugs into production as quickly as possible while under patent protection, are discovering the importance of using energy more efficiently.
And today some of the world’s largest and most powerful consumer good buyers including
Wal-Mart, Proctor and Gamble, Pepsi, Unilever and Nestle are requiring their suppliers to disclose their carbon and environmental impact. The momentum is there, but there are still huge gaps between the world’s best and those who with significant room for improvement.
