Which countries have the best energy-saving policies and performance? Are they effectively using efficiency to meet their Paris Agreement climate goals? These questions will be answered when the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) issues its biennial International Energy Efficiency Scorecard, evaluating 25 of the world’s largest energy-consuming countries.
ACEEE will release The Scorecard Tuesday, June 26, 2018, at the International Symposium on Energy Efficiency in Washington, D.C.
In alphabetical order, the 25 countries ranked by ACEEE are: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Together these countries represent 78% of all energy consumed on the planet and over 80% of the world’s gross domestic product in 2014.
The 2018 report adds two countries that were not included in the 2016 version: United Arab Emirates and Ukraine. It grades the surveyed nations on 36 different metrics.
