The International Energy Efficiency Scorecard

The rankings include: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union. Over 25 different energy efficiency indicators or "metrics" have been analyzed for each economy ranked in the report. The rankings are determined by a total score out of 100 possible points. Points can be earned in four difference categories including buildings, industry, and transportation, as well as metrics that track cross-cutting aspects of energy use at the national level.
