    這裡的[will]並沒有特別的含意, 就是表示"未來"的助動詞: 將會...

    只是此處用的是"倒裝句"結構, 所以可能讓版主產生疑惑.

    原本的寫法是:

    As the standard of living goes up in other countries, the demand for energy will go up in other countries.

    在其他國家, 對能源的需求將會隨著其生活水準的提高而增加.

    以[so]來代替與副詞子句中重複內容(也就是動詞的部分)[go up in other countries], 然後把主詞[the demand for energy]與動詞的位置互換(也就是倒裝):

    As the standard of living goes up in other countries, so will the demand for energy.

    原句也可以有另一種寫法:

    The demand for energy will go up in other countries as the standard of living goes up in other countries.

    根據"避免重複"的原則, 副詞子句中重複的內容可以改為:

    The demand for energy will go up in other countries as the standard of living does.

    這時候, 又可以用另一種"倒裝句"結構:

    The demand for energy will go up in other countries as does the standard of living.

    As the standard of living goes up in other countries, so will the demand for energy.

    = As the standard of living goes up in other countries, so will the demand for energy (go up in other countries).

    "so will xxx" 意思是「xxx也將會」, 是省略主句中重複內容的簡化寫法.

    當其他國家的生活水準提高時, 對能源的需求也會提高.

    再舉一例:

    As your income increases, so will your expenditure.

    當你的收入增加時, 你的開銷也會增加.

    因為其他國家的生活水平提升,能源的需求也會跟著提升

    整句翻譯:

    因為其他國家的生活水平提升,所以促成了能源的需求。

    Will應有促成之意。
