India ranks 63rd on the Energy Transition Index

New Delhi: India ranks 63rd on the global Energy Transition Index released by the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Wednesday. It states that the country has shown significant improvements in energy equality, security and sustainability.

European countries dominated the top positions, with Sweden topping the index, followed by Denmark, Finland, Switzerland and France in the top five. China ranked 20th.

The improvement shown by India and some other developing countries such as China and Brazil takes on significance as 83 percent of countries have deteriorated compared to last year in at least one of the three energy system performance dimensions: security, equity and sustainability .

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has noted the various initiatives taken in India and said the country is leading the way in creating results that can be replicated elsewhere. It said the governments may also consider creating awareness and policy interventions, such as guidelines for energy-efficient built infrastructure and incentives for renovation, to create an enabling environment for accelerated adoption.
