Based on three years of research involving a literature review, interviews, surveys, and an international workshop, this study first conceptualizes energy security as consisting of the interconnected factors of availability, affordability, efficiency, sustainability, and governance. It then matches these factors with 20 metrics comprising an energy security index, tracking and scoring performance across 18 countries from 1990 to 2010. It lastly offers two case studies of Malaysia (most improved energy security over time) and Myanmar (worst improved) to provide context to the index’s results before offering conclusions for scholars, analysts, and practitioners.
