The World Energy Council’s Energy Trilemma Index ranks countries’ energy performance on three dimensions, Energy Security, Energy Equity, and Environmental Sustainability, based on global and national data.

A report by the World Energy Council assessing management options of climate change risks for the energy sector. The publication presents opportunities for an energy transition and includes recommendations for governments and private sector stakeholders.

The World Energy Issues Monitor provides the views of energy leaders from across the globe to highlight the key issues of uncertainty, importance and developing signals for the future.

The Sub-Saharan African region is both a shaper and taker of new global trends and disruptive developments. It is important to look beyond the global outlook and engage with regionally specific situations and developments.

The World Energy Council’s definition of energy sustainability is based on three core dimensions: energy security, energy equity, and environmental sustainability. Balancing these three goals constitutes a ‘trilemma’ and is the basis for prosperity and competitiveness of individual countries.

The World Energy Trilemma 2017 report Changing dynamics – Using distributed energy resources to meet the Trilemma challenge, prepared in partnership with global consultancy Oliver Wyman, along with the Global Risk Centre of its parent Marsh & McLennan Companies, tapped into the global insights of the traditional and emerging players in the

As the Grand Energy Transition fast becomes a reality, the minds of global energy leaders are becoming increasingly focussed on long term trends that threaten existing economic and business models rather than concerns about short term risks.

The research conducted by the World Energy Council together with ADEME since 1992 concludes that energy efficiency continues to improve all over the world but despite the significant advances, much more can and should be done to improve the efficiency of energy production and use.

The energy landscape has changed with most countries achieving a more diversified energy mix as well as a growth in community ownerships and an evolution of micro grids.

Access to electricity and clean cooking has improved for the 125 Index countries to 85% and 74% respectively since 2000. At the same time cleaner forms of energy are being used for each dollar created, with CO2 intensity decreasing to 0.27tCo2/US$ in 2014, and the share of renewables in the global energy mix going up to 9.7% in 2015.
