Gas and solar power will dominate the world’s energy mix within the next 50 years, according to a report released this week by the Moscow-based Global Energy Association, which administers the annual Global Energy Prize.
Global Energy Prize chief calls for 10% drop by 2100. Smokes billow out of chimneys at a chemical plant in north China’s Tianjin municipality, December 23, 2008 (reissued 31 May 2017). By 2100, CO2 emissions from power, domestic and commercial space heating, industrial production, and transportation should be reduced to 10% of current level, a new study presented at the St Petersburg Economic Forum finds.
Experts said that in 15 years the largest energy resources producer will be the United States, 50 years later – Russia, and 100 years later – China.
