BCRC Energy Demand by Sector (2010 - 2050)
Energy demand viewed by sector allows us to see where decreases in nonrenewable energy consumption and increases in renewable energy consumption are expected to place. For example, a decrease in demand for oil is predicted to take place mainly in the Residential and Commercial sectors. A decrease in demand for gasoline is predicted to take place solely within the Transportation sector.
