Knowledge Hub

The Knowledge Hub, a joint effort of ESMAP and the World Bank’s Energy and Extractives Global practice focuses on producing knowledge and data tools to track progress on the Sustainable Development Goal on Energy (SDG7).  Four specific, but complementary initiatives are being implemented under the Knowledge Hub: The SDG7 Tracking is a comprehensive tool to track the energy pillars on access, renewables and efficiency. The Multi-Tier Framework (MTF) is a tool that captures in more detail other dimensions of energy to provide more accurate data on the actual services households receive. Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE) is a scorecard that captures what policies are in place to facilitate progress on SDG7.  Finally, the State of Electricity Access Report (SEAR) provides a qualitative assessment of success stories on accelerating access toward the SDG 7.1 All these tools complement each other to provide support to policy makers with needed knowledge to accelerate progress toward SDG7.
