IEA: Household electricity consumption may triple by 2030

Posted on Sunday, May 17 2009 @ 20:21:09 CEST by

A new report by the International Energy Agency (IEA) found that consumer electronics are holding efficiency back further, even though consumers are using more energy-friendly appliances. The agency claims that if the trend doesn't stop, household electricity consumption will triple before 2030.
“There is a way of having our cake and eating it at the same time by being much more proactive on efficiency,” IEA analyst Paul Wade recently said. “We can hold total consumption at today's levels by using best available technologies, despite a dramatic growth in use.”

According to the report, electricity consumption has increased 3.4 percent per year since 1990 across the entire world. Electronics such as PCs, TVs and DVD players, and MP3 players are using more electricity while refrigerators and dishwashers power usage has declined – however, consumer electronics offset all of the savings that took years to implement.
