The way we use energy presents serious economic, security and environmental challenges. Globally, energy use is expected to increase 35 percent over the next 25 years, driven primarily by developing countries’ expanding electricity use and vehicle fleets. Rising demand around the world is likely to make energy an ever more precious commodity—forcing prices up, increasing security vulnerabilities, and accounting for more carbon emissions. The United States cannot afford to ignore its dependency on foreign oil nor the opportunities presented by transitioning to a clean energy economy.
Over the past decade, clean energy investments, businesses and jobs have increased dramatically around the world. These trends are helping to create whole new industries, enhance national security and reduce emissions. Pew is working to raise awareness about this dynamic new sector in order to accelerate policy solutions that benefit security, the economy and the environment.
