Electricity availability and generation have a significant impact on the economies internationally. Understanding the factors affecting the electricity supply sector is imperative towards improving the industry and achieving a sustainable energy future for all as per the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to 2030. This study mainly focuses on the institutional quality factors that impact the electricity supply of twenty countries, representing various electricity market structures and supply mixes, to derive holistic policy suggestions. Institutional quality will be defined as property rights, corruption perception, voice and accountability, government efficiency, the rule of law and regulatory quality in the study. To do so, a Seemingly Unrelated Regression model will be used for the period 2003 to 2018. The results indicate that improved institutional quality stabilises markets, affecting the electricity supply.
