4% Growth Forecasted on Energy Sector

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  www.rothmanresearch.com

In a recent International Energy Outlook 2009 projection, worldwide consumption of marketed energy is estimated to increase by 44 percent from 2006 to 2030 with 21 percent of the consumption stemming from United States alone. A study done by independent research firm www.RothmanResearch.com produced the same results as the Energy Information Administration's (EIA) forecast -- citing the increase in consumer demand, company improvisations and impact of the provisions given by the government to the U.S. energy markets through the power of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Leading online financial platform www.RothmanResearch.com analyst, Jack Benassi, refers to two companies to spearhead the major run based mostly on their market and economic adaptability -- The Southern Company (NYSE: SO) & Edison International (NYSE: EIX).
