The greenhouse effect has caused a deterioration of the ecological environment and global climate change, and therefore investigating new green energy performances has become an important issue of the 21st century in order to establish the causal relationship. This study utilizes the meta-frontier dynamic SBM-DEA model to analyze the technology gap ratio and to evaluate the energy efficiency and energy performance in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The findings show that the efficiencies of renewable energy are different by geography and culture for the 34 countries of OECD in the period 2008–2012. Meta-frontier efficiency (MFE) presents significant differences among the top 10 countries and bottom 10 countries when examining renewable energy performance; the top 10 countries are Canada, United States, Norway, Japan, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Italy, and Austria. Countries with better overall values of energy environmental efficiency are Britain, Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Estonia, and Iceland, while the relatively poor countries are Greece, Sweden, Slovenia, Turkey, and Poland. This study finds that South-Eastern Europe has relatively poor overall performance and technology efficiency, due to historical, scientific, technical, and economic factors, whereas North Western Europe (NWE) is better than South Eastern Europe (SEE) in overall performance and technology efficiency. The Americas region exhibits larger energy consumption, and so its technical gap ratio is higher than the averages of the other groups, and it has the best overall performance.
