New Report by World Bank: Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE)

- Universal Access to Energy

An increasing number of developing countries are emerging as leaders in sustainable energy, with robust policies to support energy access, renewables and energy efficiency, according to the new World Bank Report: RISE. But the report also notes that there is huge room for improvement across every region in the world and particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.

RISE is the first global policy scorecard of its kind, grading 111 countries in three areas: energy access, energy efficiency and renewable energy. The report is aimed at helping governments assess if they have a policy and regulatory framework in place to drive progress on sustainable energy and pinpoints where more can be done to attract private investments. 

One of our researchers, Nicolò Rossetto, took part in the data collection for Italy, one of the country involved in the assessment.
