Public Consultation on Draft Report:

Sustainable Energy for All Global Tracking Framework 2017

 In 2012, the United Nations General Assembly embraced the Sustainable Energy for All objectives for 2030, aiming to achieve universal access to modern energy, as well as a doubling of the historic rate of improvement of energy efficiency, and a doubling of the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

 The Global Tracking Framework provides a dashboard that shows how rapidly the world is moving towards the three sustainable energy objectives for energy access, energy efficiency and renewable energy. The first edition of the report, published in May 2013, developed a suite of indicators and provided a historic baseline for the period 1990-2010. The second edition of the report, published in May 2017, provided an update of global progress for the period 2010-2012.

 This third edition of the Global Tracking Framework, which is due to be published in April 2017, examines global developments during the period 2012-2014. In addition, this new report puts the spotlight on trends at the regional level, including a series of in-depth profiles for all the continents of the world.

 The Sustainable Energy for All Global Tracking Framework is undertaken by a consortium of more than 20 agencies, co-led by the World Bank/ESMAP and the International Energy Agency. This year the consortium has been joined by the five United Nations Regional Economic Commissions, who have co-authored the regional profiles.

 In order to benefit from public feedback, the consortium is making drafts of all chapters available for review throughout the period of February 6th to February 13th, 2017.

The authors would particularly welcome comments and feedback on any of the following aspects of the text. This consultation will, however, take as given the fundamentals of the indicator methodology, which have already been widely consulted and discussed in previous years and fully align with the definitions adopted by the UN Statistical Commission in the context of Sustainable Development Goal 7.

1)      Is the text clear and do the main messages emerge clearly?

2)      Are the data visualizations effective and how could they be further improved?

3)      Are all the relevant implications of the data fully identified and discussed?

4)      How useful are the new regional profiles and how could they be further improved?

5)      How can the technical findings best be communicated to a non-technical audience?

The process of REN21+ has been designed to enable revision of every document online in the browser window, to better streamline the collection process. Hence we would kindly ask you to revise the documents online (by clicking on the review link of the respective document). In case you encounter any technical difficulties please write an email to
