Thailand, the Philippines and India top a list of nine Asian countries that say they are very concerned about future energy needs amid increasing pressure for more energy, water and food to keep up with increased population growth, according to Shell surv
The results emerged from a series of Shell-commissioned Future Energy surveys in which 80 percent of the respondents ranked longer-term future energy needs alongside everyday concerns like public education and cost of living as important. The surveys covered 8,446 people in 31 cities and 9 regional areas.
These concerns have arisen amid growing energy pressures globally. By 2030, the world will need 40 per cent to 50 per cent more energy, water and food in tandem with rising demand and increased populations.
