Citing statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the canadian association for renewable energies says that Canada's consumption of renewable energy will remain lower than most of the world, at 1.6% annual growth until 2040, compared with 1.8% for the U.S. and 2.5% for the world.

In 2010, Canada consumed 4 quadrillion Btu (quad) of renewable energy, but the EIA predicts this will grow to 6.4 quad in 2040. The U.S. consumed 7 quad in 2010  and is slated to grow to 12 quad in 2040, while the world consumed 56 quad in 2010 and will grow to 119 quad in 2040.

According to the association, Canada’s growth is even lower for electricity generation from renewable energies: green power will increase 1% per year to 2040, behind the U.S. annual growth rate of 2.8% and world growth of 3.2%.
