Eighth in Energy Transition Index

The World Economic Forum has ranked Brunei Darussalam in eighth spot among Asian countries in the Energy Transition Index (ETI) 2021.

Globally, the sultanate ranked 82nd among 115 countries, gaining an average score of 54 percentage points out of 100.

Nordic countries, including Sweden, Norway and Denmark, have maintained their leading positions on the ETI, driven by strong progress in environmental sustainability.

Other countries in the top 10 are Switzerland in fourth place, followed by Austria, Finland, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, France and Iceland.

Only 13 out of 115 countries have made steady gains in ETI scores in the past decade, highlighting that progress has been uneven.

The energy transition requires a full transformation of the global energy, economic and social system, beginning now, as the next decade is crucial to delivering on climate goals.

As countries continue their progress in transitioning to clean energy, it is critical to root the transition in economic, political and social practices to ensure progress is irreversible, according to the latest edition of World Economic Forum’s Fostering Effective Energy Transition 2021 report. —- Borneo Bulletin/ANN
