Description (excerpt):

Innovation is the only way that the massive global demand for energy can be met while averting the worst consequences of climate change. National governments are the most important contributors to global energy innovation. The 2021 edition of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation’s (ITIF’s) Global Energy Innovation Index (GEII) provides a multifaceted assessment of national contributions to the global energy innovation system.

While public investment in clean energy research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) is essential, a host of additional steps must be taken to turn that investment into outcomes that matter in the real world. The GEII uses 20 indicators that measure both the level of the most recent year for which data is available and the change over recent years. They are aggregated into 10 functional categories and 3 subindices.
