Resources for Sustainability: Exploring the 2017 World Bank Global Energy Architecture Performance Index Report
Helping benchmark energy performance indicators across global economies, the 2017 report sheds light on progress and future trends in the energy sector.
Success in sustainability relies heavily on growth, adaptation, and different forms of implementation of energy systems. Sustainable economies cannot be built and maintained without a functioning energy infrastructure, and the performance of different systems across the world therefore helps inform potential as well as pros and cons of prevailing models and future innovations.
Team Gemini primarily focuses on educating investors and other project participants about its closed-loop project models that use industry-relevant technologies to create and maintain sustainable communities; waste is eliminated and processed into usable resources, and precious supplies of otherwise limited inputs are conserved, recycled, or otherwise improved. With the right combination of options and infrastructure, this setup can create a 100% sustainable energy and resource system.
The Global Energy Architecture Performance index, prepared in collaboration with Accenture, is part of the World Economic Forum’s System initiative on Shaping the Future of Energy.
The index benchmarks the energy system performance of 127 countries according to 18 indicators covering three core dimensions: energy access and security, sustainability and contribution to economic growth.
This global benchmark and related analysis presented here is intended to inform energy policy and investment decisions by revealing strengths, weaknesses, trends and opportunities to improve national energy systems.
In this Resources for Sustainability article, we outline the categories of the report for easy access.
