WEF Global Energy Architecture Performance Index Report 2016: Czech Repubilc scores well for energy access, security

Analysis of this year’s top performers demonstrate that there are no clear-cut ‘winners’ or perfect energy architectures.High-performing countries are not confined to a single region. The recently published WEF Global Energy Architecture Performance Index Report 2016 to the strengths of countries beyond the usual suspects, with for example Albania (17th) and Paraguay (21st) boasting fully decarbonised electricity generation.The world’s largest economies still struggle to achieve balanced high performance in their energy systems.
