2016 Global Development Forum: Energy and Development: Powering Our Future
Global energy consumption is projected to increase by 45 percent by 2050. In order to meet rapidly growing energy demand, donors, governments, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector will need to deliver innovative solutions to the challenges of providing sustainable, reliable, affordable, and secure energy access as populations and economies in the developing world continue to grow.
