World Bank

The report, published by the World Bank, is an inventory of policies and regulations across 133 countries, accounting for 97% of the world population, on access to electricity, clean fuels for cooking, renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The report emphasizes the importance of sustainable energy in the Sustainable Development Goal for energy (SDG 7) and in climate change. It also makes the argument that policies are an important indicator and a key element in the transition towards sustainable energy.

It concludes that there has been significant improvement in countries that have solid regulatory frameworks, increasing their take-up of renewable energies and energy efficiency. However, it warns that there is still a great deal to do to achieve SDG 7 by 2030.
