At first, will gather required data for four years and belongs to 2012 until 2015 years from IEA and world bank data organizations and then will analyses them, and at the final, the SEDI ranking of each country will be obtained. Results show that in comparison with past years, all studied countries intend to achieve a remarkable growth in energy sustainability. Selecting the SEDI method in this work has two main causes; firstly, this method has multidimensional attention to energy sustainability and secondly can be a good method to find strong and weak indicators for a country.
