Ukraine

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, Ukraine has committed at least USD -2.16 billion to supporting different energy types through new or amended policies, according to official government sources and other publicly available information. These public money commitments include:

  • At least USD 98.92 million for unconditional fossil fuels through 16 policies (10 quantified and 6 unquantified)
  • At least USD -11.68 million for conditional fossil fuels through 4 policies (2 quantified and 2 unquantified)
  • At least USD -2.24 billion for unconditional clean energy through 12 policies (7 quantified and 5 unquantified)
  • No public money commitments identified for conditional clean energy
  • At least USD -5.39 million for other energy through 25 policies (1 quantified and 24 unquantified)

By energy type, some public money committed for oil and gas (4 policies with the value of public money unquantified).

In addition, Ukraine committed at least USD 87.24 million to coal (at least USD 98.92 million to unconditional coal and at least USD -11.68 million to conditional coal).

Further, no public money commitments identified for hydrogen based on fossil fuels.

Finally, no public money commitments identified for multiple fossil fuels.

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of Ukraine through monetary and fiscal policies in response to the crisis may also benefit different elements of the energy sector. However, these values are not available from official legislation and statements and therefore are not included in the database. Meanwhile, in addition to monetary and fiscal measures, the database lists other policies and regulations that can also provide benefits to producers and consumers of different energy types.

These public money commitments are additional to many other government policies that had existed to support different energy types before the COVID19 pandemic.
