We carry out in this paper a comparison of the methodologies and results of Energy Efficiency Scoreboards. Several such scoreboards have been developed in recent years notably the International Energy Efficiency Score¬card and the State Energy Efficiency Scorecard by ACEEE and the ODYSSEE-MURE Energy Efficiency Score¬board. We also provide an overview of other policy scoreboards in the energy field and look to lessons learned from other fields beyond energy (such as scoreboards to measure innovation or educational capabilities of countries). We analyse the methodologies used to compose the scoreboard, the possible impact of the methodologies on results, the data sources and data requirements for establishing the scoreboards, the ranking procedures, and the results. We also discuss how the scoreboards have impacted or may impact policy making.
