Track realtime data on public finance for energy around the world.
As governments across the world continue to invest hundreds of billions in the energy system to reboot their economies, our analysis is expanding to cover more countries and provide a more comprehensive global picture. Countries are also grouped by regions, which helps to identify trends and patterns in their local contexts.Search
The Energy Policy Tracker database is updated on a weekly basis, to provide the latest information about COVID-19 government policy responses from a climate and energy perspective. Our analysis provides a detailed overview of the public finance flows as determined by recovery packages across the G20. Filter by country, energy type, finance mechanisms, and other categories to see, at a glance, what types of measures countries are implementing to tackle the crisis and what is shaping our future energy system.Explore the data
Why it matters
G20 governments have pledged to inject trillions of dollars into the global economy to counteract the health, social, and financial shocks caused by the COVID-19 crisis. This large-scale stimulus spending will shape the global economy for decades to come. These decisions could trigger unbearable climate disasters or create a resilient and safe economy powered by clean energy.Why it matters

The source of funding is the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020, sub-measure 1.6.1. MPEC in Nowy Sącz is the operator of a system that includes energy sources and a heat network for city residents, public institutions, and companies. The planned project involves the construction of a gas boiler for the production of thermal energy to meet year-round heat demand in Nowy Sącz. A modern high-efficiency cogeneration system powered by natural gas will produce 5.85 MW of heat and 6 MW of electricity per year. Greenhouse gas emissions are expected to decrease by approx. 31,496 tons of CO2 / year and primary energy consumption by 171,375 GJ / year. Limiting the use of hard coal is a key goal. The contract for co-financing the construction was signed in Warsaw on December 29, 2020 by the Vice-President of the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management and the President of the Management Board of Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Energetyki Cieplnej Sp. z o. o. in Nowy Sącz. The total cost of the investment will be almost PLN 27 million, and its completion is planned for the second quarter of 2023.||
