Worldwatch Institute report finds global energy intensity increased in 2010 for second year in a row

Green Car Congress

In addition to technological advances, price developments play a key role in determining overall energy usage, Worldwatch notes. World crude oil prices more than tripled between 2004 and 2008—the fastest rise since the oil crisis of the late 1970s—contributing to the sharp decline in energy intensity during that period. But after the second half of 2008, when international oil prices dropped 75%, global energy intensity started rising.
