To meet the increasing global demand for energy, while reducing the risk of damage to the environment or contributing to global warming, it is important that:
– Countries find new types of energy, while developing and expanding existing sources that are more sustainable than fossil fuels.
– Industry and domestic users of energy use it more efficiently (ie stop wasting it).
– MEDCs start to switch from fossil fuels to alternative sources.
– As LEDCs start to use more energy they are encouraged to develop more sustainable sources of energy.
