Now in its fifth year, the World Economic Forum’s Global Energy Architecture Performance Index (EAPI) ranks the performance of countries’ energy systems, as well as looking at trends in the global energy transition.
This year’s report includes the findings from 127 countries on 18 indicators covering three key areas:
1. Economic growth and development — the extent to which a country’s energy architecture, or how its energy is sourced, supplied and managed, adds or detracts from economic growth.
2. Environmental sustainability — the environmental impact of energy supply and consumption.
3. Energy access and security — the extent to which an energy supply is secure, accessible and diversified.
The index benchmarks the performance of national energy systems, in order to enable comparisons across countries and by highlighting strengths and areas for improvement, the index can inform energy policy-making.
