The line graph demonstrates the world’s electricity consumption between the years 1980 and 2030. It is evident that as an overall trend the consumption of electricity increased quite rapidly until the nineties. Displays a slow growth till 2000 and then high growth till 2010. The graph predicts rapid demand of electricity in all the region till 2030.
The line graph differentiates the energy consumption of the different regions such as Latin America, Middle East and Africa, Asia, eastern Europe or Eurasia and finally the OECD countries. Looking at the details, it can be found that in 1980s all region used to consume almost same amount of TWh that was 5000.
There was a gradual growth in Latin America till 2000. Possibly because of development in technology, usage of electricity is fast growing. It faces a high demand after 2000 and predicts demand of 29000 TWh in next 15 years.
Middle East and Africa show the same trend as Latin America but the growth in economy and technology, they predict more electricity consumption of nearly 27000 TWh by 2030.
Asia started from 6000 TWh in 1980s but demonstrate more need of electricity from 2000. Asia has consumed 16000 TWh till 2010 and will reach to 20000 by the end of 2020. Asia will be needing to 25000 TWh electricity by 2030.
Eurasia displays quite opposite trend from the rest of the region. It shows a consistent growth till 2010 and reached 10000 TWh in 2008. There is a slow growth after 2015 and it limited its consumption near 10000 TWh. It will hit the figure of 11000 TWh by 2030 presumably.
Same trend is demonstrated by the OECD countries as Eurasia. The World Energy Outlook 2009 reveals that OECD had consumed 8000 TWH till 2010 and will reach to 10000 TWh by 2030.
