The world population is expected to reach more than 10 billion people before the end of the 21st century, according to United Nations projections. With the current world population around 7 billion, this is significant growth that will create huge demand for resources, including energy. Our current and anticipated future energy needs are driving growth in the number of jobs in the industry. Opportunities in alternative energy sectors are especially likely to grow as demand among an expanding population and rising number of developing nations exceeds the supply of traditional energy resources.
