Some Very Smart People Think Peak Oil Is Coming by 2035

According to Bernstein analyst Neil Beveridge, the world will hit peak oil in 2035. The world will begin to wean itself off its reliance on oil starting in about 20 more years.

The global crude oil supply glut, as well as the rise of electric vehicles, slowing growth in China and increases in fuel efficiency have some investors turning permanently bearish on oil. However, Beveridge believes oil demand could soon begin heading in the opposite direction.

“Despite these uncertainties, a key conclusion from our analysis is that demand growth through 2020 could well be stronger than the previous decade with growth of 1.4% CAGR,” Beveridge explains.
