Germany 5th on energy policy index

World Bank

Germany is ranked 5th on the Worldbank’s Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE) index that compares states’ policies and regulations in the energy sector. Countries are scored using 27 indicators in the three pillars energy access, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. “RISE provides a reference point to help policymakers benchmark their sector policy and regulatory framework against those of regional and global peers, and a powerful tool to help develop policies and regulations that advance sustainable energy goals,” says the website. Denmark is in first place, followed by Canada, the United States and the Netherlands.
