In declaring 2012 the international year
of sustainable energy for all, the United Nations (UN)
general assembly (2011) established at the personal
initiative of the UN secretary general- three global
objectives to be accomplished by 2030. Those goals are to
ensure universal access to modern energy services (including
electricity and clean, modern cooking solutions), to double
the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency, and to
double the share of renewable energy in the global energy
mix. Some 70 countries have formally embraced the
Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative, while
numerous corporations and agencies have pledged tens of
billions of dollars to achieve its objectives. As 2012 drew
to a close, the UN general assembly announced a decade of
sustainable energy for all stretching from 2014 to 2024.
Sustaining momentum for the achievement of the SE4ALL
objectives will require a means of charting global progress
over the years leading to 2030. Construction of the
necessary framework has been coordinated by the World Bank
and Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) and
the International Energy Agency (IEA), in collaboration with
13 other agencies. The process has benefited from public
consultation with more than a hundred stakeholder groups.
This report provides an initial system for regular global
reporting based on indicators that are both technically
rigorous and feasible to compute from current global energy
databases, and that offer scope for progressive improvement
over time.
