What is energy security?
In the early 18th century, the world's population was only 1 billion people. It increased up to two billion only by the 20-th of the twentieth century.
Today on the planet live more than 7 billion people. According to the UN forecasts, in the nearest hundred years this figure will exceed 11 billion.
International experts have estimated that in the last 50 years people have been using the Earth's natural resources faster than the planet was able replenish them.
At the same time, the most energy-consuming countries were the developing states.
According to British Petroleum, they account for about 60% of the world's energy consumption.
The world community has already begun to solve the problem: energy-saving technologies are being introduced not only in industries but also in everyday life;
States and international organizations are reviewing energy security policies. This issue is also on the agenda of Kazakhstan in its work in the UN Security Council.
