RISE is a tool for policymakers to compare national policy frameworks for sustainable energy and identify opportunities to attract investment. RISE assesses countries’ policy support for each of the three pillars of sustainable energy – access to electricity, access to clean cooking (for 55 access-deficit countries), energy efficiency, and renewable energy. With over 30 indicators covering 138 countries and representing over 98 percent of the world population, RISE provides a reference point to help policymakers benchmark their sector policy and regulatory framework against those of regional and global peers, and a powerful tool to help develop policies and regulations that advance sustainable energy goals.
