Chinese CO2 emissions accounted for the single largest share of global carbon emissions in 2019 at 28.8 pct.
The country was also the key driver of energy consumption growth in 2019 when global growth slowed to 1.3 pct from 2.8 pct energy demand growth in 2018, according to the BP report. (Source: BP, Oil Price, 17 June, 2020)

According to the report, in 2018 the final energy demand for buildings increased by 1 pct since 2017 and by 7 pct since 2010. The International Energy Agency (IEA) World Energy Outlook 2019 notes the improvement of the energy intensity rate has slowed down to 1.2 pct in 2018, less than half the average rate since 2010. Specifically, cooling of living spaces represents by now the energy consumed with the most rapid increase since 2010.

The $2 billion (US) project would include an 800 tpd plastics-to-fuel production facility, a 50-megawatt gasification steam turbine power plant a new deep-water cargo port with berths capable of handling up to three bulk carrier ships as well as a separate fuel loading dock, according to the company website. A sorting facility will be used for the separation of solid recovered fuel biomass (SRF). Solid recovered fuel is considered a high-quality alternative to fossil fuel and is produced from mainly commercial waste products, including paper, card, wood, textiles, and plastics.
The $2 billion (US) with total power output planned at more than 235 megawatts by the end of the second phase, according to information found on the company website. (Source: Town of Lewisporte Harbour, Journal Pioneer, 23 Sept., 2019) Contact: Synergy World Energy, www.synergyworldwide.com › en-ca

EgyptAir is the first operator to use Boeing's new sustainable fuel delivery program that gives airlines the option to pick biofuel for aircraft delivery flights. Sustainable aviation fuels have been shown to help reduce aircraft CO2 emissions by up to 80 per cent.
The biodiesel biofuel used to power the Dreamliner was created from agricultural waste by Boston-headquartered World Energy at its Paramount, California facility which was designed to produce renewable jet fuel on a commercial scale.

According to the report, energy consumption growth was driven by natural gas, which contributed more than 40 pct of the increase. All fuels grew faster than their 10-year averages, apart from renewables, although renewables still accounted for the second largest increment to energy growth.
The report found the rapid increase in carbon emissions was at least partially due to the sharp increase in abnormally hot and cold days around the world, which in turn led consumers to use more energy for cooling and heating. China, the US, and India together accounted for more than two-thirds of the global increase in energy demand, with US consumption expanding at its fastest rate for 30 years.

At alsmost $20 billion, 2017's investment in Indian renewables accounted for over a third of investments in the power sector thanks to nearly double the money being poured into solar and wind projects. By comparison, in 2017 all investments in power projects based on coal, gas, and oil as fuel reached totaled just $16 billion altogether.
This increase in renenwables is largely accredited to to the recently decreasing prices of wind and solar power and the rising price of coal. (Source: International Energy Agency, Oilprice, Aug., 2018)

BP notes that although renewable power generation grew by 17 pct in 2017, strong economic growth led to an above-average demand for energy, cut backs in energy efficiency and an increase in the demand for coal in China combined to drive up emissions, the company's annual statistical review of world energy found.
According to BP, which has a limited presence in the power sector, the world's appetite for oil remained strong, as it grew 1.8 pct in 2017.

By way of comparison, the European Union's total decline amounted to 770 million tons while the UK reported a 170 million metric ton decline. At the same time, China's carbon dioxide emissions grew by 3 billion metric tons, and India's grew by 1 billion metric tons.
According to the World Bank, U.S. per capita carbon dioxide emissions rank 11th among all countries. So, we are not the largest per capita emitter, but we do emit 2.2 times as much on a per capita basis as China. But, China has 4.3 times as many people, and that matters from an overall emissions perspective. China's lower per capita carbon dioxide emissions are more than offset by its greater population, so China emits over 70 pct more CO2 per year than the U.S.
Specifically, the EIA projects that most of the growth in renewables will stem from countries outside the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and that non-OECD Asia -- China and India -- will drive over 60 pct of the world's total increase in energy consumption during the projected period.
The EIA predicts that "renewables are expected to be the fastest-growing energy source" across the projected period, with annual consumption increasing on average by 2.3 pct between 2015 and 2040. Coal's share of global energy consumption is expected to fall from 27 pct in 2015 to 22 pct in 2040. (Source: US EIA, 18 Sept., 2017) Contact: US EIA, www.eia.gov/outlooks/ieo

According to the report, there was a 12 pct fall in global energy investment in 2016, but equally significant is the fact that clean energy spending claimed a record 43 pct share of all expenditures.
The IEA calculates that $1.7 trillion was invested in the global energy sectors in 2016 -- 2.2 pct of global GDP. Spending on the electricity sector outstripped investment in gas, oil and coal supply for the first time ever – marking a notable tilt away from traditional thermal energies towards renewables and nuclear.
The U.S., meanwhile, accounted for 16 pct of global energy spending despite registering a sharp decline in oil and gas investment. With China, India and the U.S. cutting back on thermal power investment, carbon emissions stagnated in 2016 for the third year in a row, the IEA report found.
