Peak People: The Interrelationship between Population Growth and Energy Resources

Graham Zabel, MSc Demography/Energy Economics, London School of Economics, Energy Bulletin

This paper investigates the link between population growth, energy resources and carrying capacity at a global level, to determine if there might be dependencies and if so, how they could be modelled. Different qualities of energy resources may interact differently with population growth. Finally the implications of a peak in energy resource availability on population growth are examined.
