Big4.com, the premier social networking forum for professionals and alumni of Accenture, Andersen, BearingPoint, Capgemini, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers PwC, notes a new joint report that states continued increase in energy consumption, which is expected to grow by approximately 40 percent by 2035, will require significant changes in countries’ energy architectures as they try to meet the demands of economic growth, environmental sustainability and energy security.
Big4.com reports joint effort by Accenture and World Economic Forum states the path countries take to transform their energy architecture will have some common features – efficient, low-carbon and increasingly electrified systems -- but will vary according to their stage of economic development and their resource endowment.
New Energy Architecture: Enabling an Effective Transition, notes the shift to new energy architecture to secure sustainable and affordable energy will entail trade-offs and difficult choices for society. To help decision-makers in planning and driving an effective transition and to assess their progress, Accenture and the World Economic Forum have developed an Energy Architecture Performance Index.
The assessment shows while almost all of the countries have improved the efficiency of their energy sector, the share of non-carbon energy in the total primary energy supply is still less than 5 percent for 69 of the 124 countries assessed.
