Surging energy demand in Asia will deliver ''a golden age'' for the Australian economy but also set the world on a path of dangerous climate change as fossil fuel-sourced emissions soar, according to the International Energy Agency. China will soon dislodge the US as the world's biggest oil importer and India will be the largest coal importer by the early 2020s as the centre of energy demand shifts ''decisively'' to emerging economies, the IEA said in its World Energy Outlook 2013 report.
