Improved living standards and new construction and infrastructure projects are increasing the demand for energy around the world, especially in places like China and India. According to estimates, by 2035 we will use 50% more energy than today. Meeting our future energy needs will require a mix of traditional and renewable sources: oil from deep water and oil sands, to algae and biofuels.
