World Energy Trilemma Index 2022

The World Energy Trilemma is in its 12th year of publication amidst a time of unprecedented energy shocks and multiple crises that continue to cause disruptions to energy systems. The interaction of these shocks and crises has a cascading impact that affect energy security, energy affordability and sustainability issues including climate change across regions. Driving a clean and just energy transition that simultaneously ensures a secure, equitable, and sustainable way forward continues to be a complex problem. 2022, the year of convergence of the crises, reinforced the need for balance in the dimensions of energy security, affordability, and sustainability. The Trilemma framework continues to offer a baseline for designing and developing new insights to assist regions in understanding the impact and track the progress of their energy transitions.
