RISE 2018

Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE) 2018

Research report
RISE 2018

RISE is an important tool to help governments assess whether they have the necessary policy and regulatory frameworks in place to drive progress on the energy transition. It enables governments to measure their performance against regional and global peers. The report can also be used by the private sector to identify investment opportunities for sustainable energy projects, products and services in national markets.

RISE 2018 is the second edition produced by Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) of the World Bank Group and contains many new features over the inaugural 2017 report, including policy time trends since 2010, a greater emphasis on tracking policies that support enforcement, broader coverage of the heating and transportation sectors, and a pilot assessment of the policy environment for clean cooking in a dozen large access-deficit countries.
