2015 Energy Trilemma Index

Source: World Energy Council

From Executive Summary:

Now in its fifth edition, the 2015 World Energy Trilemma Index registers overall improvements across the three trilemma goals, although results show it is still a struggle for countries to develop a balanced approach, with only two countries out of 130 achieving a 'AAA' balance score.

This year Switzerland, Sweden and Norway take top rankings in the Index. Within the security dimension, Canada is once again the highest ranking country, with the United States (US) maintaining the position for most equitable (affordable and accessible) and Switzerland leading the way on the environmental sustainability dimension. In the Latin American region Uruguay ranks the highest with Colombia following closely behind, while Qatar outperforms its regional peers in the Middle East. In Sub-Saharan Africa, Gabon continues to climb the upper half of the Index. New Zealand remains the only top 10 country in Asia.
