WEF’s ETI reflects the progress towards a more inclusive, sustainable, affordable, and secure energy system. It assesses countries’ readiness to energy transition and the current performance of energy systems across the three dimensions of the energy triangle: economic development and growth, environmental sustainability, and energy security and access indicators.
This year, northern European countries like Sweden, Norway, and Denmark maintained their leading positions on the ETI.
The ETI report showed that 92 economies made progress over the period between 2012 and 2021. However, only 68 have improved their scores by more than two percentage points.
Large emerging centres of demand such as China and India have seen strong improvements. Meanwhile, scores in Brazil, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, and Turkey held relatively stable.
The CO2 intensity has remained broadly flat since 2010, suggesting continued dependence on high-carbon energy sources and inertia from legacy energy infrastructure, it added.
