This element is estimated by the entity from now until 2025, in a scenario with many difficulties.
The Agency also believes that at the same time gas and coal consumption will remain stagnant in those three years.
In its annual report on the global electricity market published Wednesday and released in Brussels, the IEA notes that more than 45% of the increase in renewable electricity generation will be in China and 15 in the European Union (EU). In the latter scenario, a significant cutback in fossil fuels is expected.
In the next three years, 70% of the electricity demand generated in the world will come from India, Southeast Asia and, above all, China, whose relative weight will rise to a third of the total in 2025, compared to a quarter in 2015.
The increase in global consumption, which rose at a rate of 2,4% during the years preceding the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, has fallen to a modest two percent in 2022.
This was mainly due to the crisis generated by the conflict in Ukraine and exceptional weather conditions in some parts of the world.
