The Energy Progress Report 2021: Tracking SDG7

This is the seventh edition of this annual flagship. The report assesses the progress made by each country on access to electricity, access to clean cooking services, renewables, and energy efficiency. It provides a global, regional and country-level snapshot of how far we are from achieving the 2030 SDG7 targets.

This is a joint effort of the Bank, the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), and the World Health Organization (WHO).

This year’s report finds that the SDG7 is growing even more distant, despite rapid progress over the last decade.

While more than a billion people gained access to power between 2010-2019, the report finds current and planned policies will not close the gap, and the global pandemic and other crises could set some countries further back.
