South Korea ranked 49th among 114 countries in its shift from fossil fuels to sustainable clean energy, a recent report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) showed Thursday.

South Korea scored 56 points out of 100 in the Energy Transition Index (ETI), the WEF's energy benchmark based on energy security, access, environmental sustainability, economic development and growth, as well as transition readiness for clean energy.

Among 32 countries listed as advanced economies, South Korea took 30th place only ahead of the Czech Republic and Greece, the report said.

South Korea ranked highly in electricity access, diversification of energy importing nations and quality but scored low in emissions of fine dust, methane and CO2.

European countries were considered the best prepared for the energy transition, with Denmark, Sweden and Norway achieving high scores across most metrics, it noted. (yonhap)
