The rise in energy efficiency / consumption has led to a reduction of fossil fuels that the world must use.
I feel the correct word is 'consumption'. If I'm wrong, could you please explain why?
It would sounds a bit more natural if it said something like 'fossil fuels available'.
Thanks for your comments and the improvement in the sentence construction.
The rise in energy consumption / efficiency has led to a reduction of fossil fuels that the world must use.
The answer provided to me is 'consumption'. I would like to know the reason. However, I will write what I think is the reason and could you let me know whether my reasoning is correct?
The more energy is used the less fossil fuels are available.
Am I correct in my reasoning? Thank you in advance.
Yes, that is correct
Many thanks for your prompt reply.
