BP’s Energy Outlook 2030 sees oil dominance, strong rise of natural gas, “strong” growth for renewables (11% of world energy production by 2030!), increase in energy efficiency and US energy independence.

The report clearly demonstrates that the necessary energy revolution to move "beyond petroleum" has not yet reached the boards of Big Oil.
