ASEAN energy demand to grow by 21% in 2024

Fossil fuel will still account for the largest share in energy consumption.

Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) energy demand could increase by 21% this year compared to 2021 levels, with fossil fuels expected to dominate the energy sectors.

In a report, the ASEAN Centre for Energy said oil will hold the largest share in energy consumption at 45.8%.

“Sectoral analysis shows that all end-use sectors see an increase in energy consumption driven by population and economic growth,” the report said.
