At its most basic level, our universe is a ball of energy. Even in the beginning, before stars and planets existed, energy permeated the universe. It’s one of our most precious resources, whether it comes from electrons, water or the sky, our way of life is focused on energy creation and consumption.

 

As part of a series of interactive animated infographics in partnership with the Discovery Channel, we explored the major aspects of energy throughout the universe, from what we use every day at home to what helps power space travel.

 

So how much energy does the world consume, and what’s the outlook for the future? In this installment, the sixth in the series, we take a look at exactly that question, examining energy consumption, types of production and alternatives to the most popular existing methods of energy production.
