Default Air conditioning set to be a main driver of global electricity demand

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/15/air-...port-says.html

Quote:
The rising use of air conditioners (ACs) in offices and homes is set to be a top driver of global electricity demand in the next 30 years, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said Tuesday.

Worldwide energy demand from air conditioners is set to triple by 2050, according to the IEA's "The Future of Cooling" report.

This increasing demand will need huge amounts of new electricity capacity, equivalent to the combined capacity of the U.S., Japan and European Union today. The number of air conditioners in buildings will hit 5.6 billion by 2050, up from 1.6 billion today, the study said.
By the same token, better thermal insulation of homes and more efficient ACs have non-trivial effects on the power load, depending on region/location and characteristics of the regional housing stock.

There is also one benefit of higher energy efficiency for power plants that alludes analysts. We know that higher efficiency causes a decline in power load that makes power generators operate less, but efficiency measures that target the peak load periods also lower the operation of the highest marginal cost turbines (highest marginal cost=lowest thermal efficiency). This is described by this paper: https://link.springer.com/article/10...053-015-9392-9.

Darkness set to be main driver of use of light bulbs.



Thirst set to be main driver of use of drinking water.

Energy Grants for home owners are a good thing in certain countries. Insulation is relatively cheap to install and produce and deliver.

It would be a good starting point.

Can't change the world overnight.

They cite what the estimated growth of ACs will be by 2030. It is not just a general statement.

And we have 2 nuclear reactors in Jenkinsville SC that are over half way finished and the project is halted. This will come back to bite us in the ass.

Well, if Saudi Arabia continues to not use these, it will help
