9 Survey of Energy Resources 2004 Hydropower: Usage/Potential (2002)

10 Conclusions No shortage of global energy resources R/P ratio for fossil fuels: –Oil40 years –Natural Gas60 years –Coal200 years Uneven distribution of strategic resources around the world Consumption areas do not all coincide with production areas Environmental issues/rules will play a strategic role in sustainable development Substantial increase of non-hydro renewables, but total share only some 5% in 2030 (with wind and bioenergy the leading players)
