Hard impact of the crisis on energy demand in 2009 in most G20 countries, except for China & India

7 May 2010

Based on its 2009 global energy industry data, Enerdata analyses the evolution of the energy demand in the G20

Energy consumption in the G20 decreased by 1% in 2009. This slight decrease is the result of contrasting trends: On the one-hand, most industrialized countries experienced a sharp decrease of up to 10% in energy demand. Oil, gas, coal, and electricity markets are following the same trends. On the other hand, China and India show no signs of slowing down, and continue to have a strong appetite for all forms of energy.
