About 2010 energy and CO2 data

The first 2010 global energy data confirms trends identified in May 2011. Energy consumption soared by 5.5% in 2010, after the 1% decrease observed in 2009 and results in a growth in CO2-energy emissions close to 6%, to their highest level ever.

Emerging countries account for 2/3 of this global increase with about 460 Mtoe, and China alone represents 1/4 of the world energy consumption growth in 2010.

Oil, gas and coal contribute equally to this increase in energy demand in 2010, largely due to the industrial recovery.
