World Bank Report on RISE: Policy Matters Regulatory Indicators For Sustainable Energy By Ayush Verma/ Updated On Fri, Jun 14th, 2019 Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE) is built on the premise that policies matter along with good institutions and enforcement. RISE is based on a wealth of empirical evidence which shows that policies and regulations matter when countries are seeking to attract investment and establish a sustainable energy agenda. Therefore, it is relevant to assess the existence of policy and regulation to understand the investment environment for sustainable energy. However, there may be many factors that influence investment decisions, from the existence of good practices to quality and content of the policies and their actual enforcement. The RISE report was produced by the Global Energy and Extractives Practice of the World Bank Group.
