G20 countries

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, governments in G20 countries have committed at least USD 607.76 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 223.62 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 239 policies (119 quantified and 120 unquantified)
  • At least USD 39.63 billion for conditional fossil fuels through 48 policies (35 quantified and 13 unquantified)
  • At least USD 49.95 billion for unconditional clean energy through 158 policies (91 quantified and 67 unquantified)
  • At least USD 190.78 billion for conditional clean energy through 157 policies (111 quantified and 46 unquantified)
  • At least USD 103.79 billion for other energy through 97 policies (51 quantified and 46 unquantified)

By energy type, G20 countries committed at least USD 198.89 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 180.93 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 17.96 billion to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, G20 countries committed at least USD 30.64 billion to coal (at least USD 19.87 billion to unconditional coal and at least USD 10.77 billion to conditional coal).

Further, G20 countries committed at least USD 1.27 million to hydrogen based on fossil fuels (at least USD 1.27 million to unconditional hydrogen based on fossil fuels).

Finally, G20 countries committed at least USD 20.00 billion to multiple fossil fuels (at least USD 19.92 billion to unconditional multiple fossil fuels and at least USD 82.47 million to conditional multiple fossil fuels).

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of G20 countries 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.

However, he resisted growing calls for a raising of the licence-exemption threshold for distributed projects at mines, smelters, factories and farms from 1 MW to 50 MW, indicating instead that the cap would be increased to only 10 MW. This despite arguments that a liberalisation of South Africa’s convoluted licensing regime was the cheapest and quickest way to unlock at least 5 000 MW of new capacity within five years.

This reform is expected to generate 5.5 million direct and indirect employment. The bill seeks to amend the Mines and Mineral (Development and Regulation) Act, 1957, and would bring in mega reforms in the sector with resolution in legacy issues, thereby making a large number of mines available for auctions. It is expected to strengthen the auction-only regime and boost transparency in the system. The reforms as part of the bill include removing the distinction between captive and non-captive mines and introduction of an index-based mechanism by developing a National Mineral Index (NMI) for various statutory payments, among others. In order to boost exploration, there will be review of functioning of the National Mineral Exploration Trust (NMET). NMET will be made an autonomous body. Private entities will also be engaged in exploration works now. Simplification of exploration regime will also be done to facilitate seamless transition from exploration to production.

The Notices are part of the the alignment of regulations required for the effective implementation of national environmental management legislation in terms of the One Environmental System. They will also contribute to the expansion of the country’s alternate energy mix as the country works towards a reduction in the reliance on coal for energy. The publication in the government gazette of the development corridors for strategic gas transmission pipeline infrastructure, and large scale wind and solar photovoltaic energy facilities follows an extended public consultation period on the proposed Renewable Energy Development Zones and improved Environmental Impact Assessment processes in 2020. Amendments to the procedures to apply for, and for decisions on, Environmental Authorisations (EA) for the development of alternative energy initiatives in what is known as the Renewable Energy Development Zones (REDZ) have also been published for implementation. The EA process has been shortened to allow for a smoother implementation of alternate energy growth in South Africa. It is also because the proactive site sensitivity work has been completed through two two-and-a-half year Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) processes. These determined the environmental sensitivity of each of the zones and corridors. Renewable energy developments within identified zones in South Africa will require an environmental authorisation.

United Kingdom National Clean unconditional Government streamlines energy efficiency labelling system in greener product standards push Other sector Energy efficiency New or extended regulation (IT... 2021031010/03/2021 Other Energy efficiency Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Government To make appliances such as fridges, washing machines and TVs cheaper to run and last longer Tougher rules are being introduced to make appliances such as fridges, washing machines and TVs cheaper to run and last longer, the government has said. New legislation aims to tackle “premature obsolescence” in electrical goods – short lifespans built into appliances by manufacturers so that customers have to buy new ones sooner – and make them more energy efficient. The rules include a legal requirement on manufacturers to make spare parts available to consumers, which aims to extend the lifespan of products by up to 10 years and cut carbon emissions from the manufacture of new goods. The measures, which apply to white goods such as washing machines, dishwashers and fridges, as well as items such as TVs, aim to reduce the 1.5m tonnes of electrical waste the UK generates a year. New energy labels have also been introduced this week, to simplify the ratings, which had reached the point where most products were classed as A+, A++ or A+++ because of improvements in energy efficiency since the standards were first introduced. The simplified system is based on an A-G scale, with the bar raised for each grade so that very few appliances will now be classed in the top A standard. The new regulations, which the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy aims to bring into force in the summer, reflect what was agreed by the UK as an EU member state two years ago. They will apply in Great Britain, while EU rules will continue to apply in Northern Ireland.

The provincial government has approved the one-time rebate of $285 million. The amount each customer receives will vary, and it will be calculated based on a proportion of vehicle premiums paid in the previous three years. Details are still being finalized, but it’s expected the average rebate will work out to approximately $285 per vehicle or approximately 26 per cent of an average annual premium in Saskatchewan. The Auto Fund, which all Saskatchewan vehicle owners pay into via their insurance premiums, maintains the Rate Stabilization Reserve (RSR). Maintaining a healthy balance in the RSR protects customers against sudden rate fluctuations due to unexpected cost pressures.

The investment is matched by £175 million from industry. The challenge aims to bring together technologies in electrification, aviation systems and autonomy to create new modes of air travel and capability. It will: - create the aviation system of the future - increase mobility, improve connectivity and reduce congestion for people across the UK - advance electric and autonomous flight technologies to help the UK reach its net zero target - drive technology investment to the UK by increasing UK manufacturing and service opportunities. Funded through this challenge, Heathrow has started research for two projects that aim to reduce emissions, cut costs and make the airport more efficient. The two projects are Fly2Plan – looking at how technology can use the airport’s data more efficiently – and Project NAPKIN, which will develop a ‘blueprint’ for zero carbon aviation across the UK.

Planners also want to modify flight time controls, and to extend the daytime flight period available at Leeds Bradford Airport. Councillors voted by nine votes to five to agree to the plans in principle. The updated plans will now return to the council’s plans panel committee at a later date. The decision was met with considerable objections. Objectors to the plans, which included scientists and environmental campaigners, told councillors that further airport expansion would not be compatible with the UK’s climate targets.

The government (Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, aka BEIS) has published further details about its plans for the UK's new emissions trading scheme (ETS), after Ministers controversially decided to exit the EU scheme. As expected the new domestic carbon market is expected to largely mirror the EU ETS, which British companies have taken part in since its launch over a decade ago. However, the new document confirms one major change from earlier proposals, with the reserve price for allowances sold at auction increasing by nearly 50 per cent to £22 a tonne. The BEIS update also confirmed the scheme will cover the same businesses as are covered by the EU ETS and that free allocations of allowances will continue to certain industries so as to reduce the risk of 'carbon leakage'. In addition, it confirmed that alongside the auction reserve price the scheme would include a Cost Containment Mechanism (CCM) designed to allow the UK government and devolved administrations to address significant extended price spikes in the market by increasing the availability of allowances.

This will incentivize them to improve efficiency. The emission trading scheme (ETS) will initially only cover the thermal power industry, which last year accounted for about 40% of China’s emissions. That sector in of itself is responsible for twice the emissions of the EU carbon market, until now the world’s biggest. The ETS scheme does not put a cap on carbon emissions though. Rather, it imposes carbon intensity limits for every unit of electricity a power plant generates. Operators whose plants are below the benchmark will be able to sell their carbon credits and those that go beyond the threshold will need to buy additional credits.

These homes are expected to produce 75-80% lower carbon emissions compared to current levels. To ensure industry is ready to meet the new standards by 2025, new homes will be expected to produce 31% lower carbon emissions from 2021. Existing homes will also be subject to higher standards – with a significant improvement on the standard for extensions, making homes warmer and reducing bills.

The plant is being developed by Drax in North Yorkshire and would be the biggest gas power station in Europe, with 3.6GW installed capacity; it is estimated that the plant could account for 75% of the UK’s power sector emissions when fully operational, , according to lawyers for ClientEarth, which brought the judicial review. In 2019 the Planning Inspectorate recommended that ministers refuse permission for the 3.6GW gas plant on the grounds that it “would undermine the government’s commitment, as set out in the Climate Change Act 2008, to cut greenhouse emissions [by having] significant adverse effects.” Andrea Leadsom, the secretary of state for business, energy and industrial strategy at the time of the planning application, rejected the advice and gave the project the go-ahead in October 2019. The high court rejected ClientEarth’s initial legal challenge in May 2020.

The proposed development is for a large underground metallurgical, or "coking coal", coal mine. The mine will produce coal for use mainly in steel production. Its progress has been hindered by campaigns from environmental activists who fear that the facility could hinder the UK’s net zero goals. The government could have called in the plans; however, in January 2021 they decided not to block the Cumbrian coal mine.

The application for the Dewley Hill coal mine project was submitted earlier in 2020 by Banks Mining, which argued that the project would provide essential fuel to the UK’s steel and cement sector. Its plans were built around extracting up to 800,000 tonnes of coal and 400,000 tonnes of fireclay each year.Banks Mining also pointed to the job creation potential of the project amid the backdrop of Covid-19. It argued that the mine would create 200 full-time equivalent roles for the local area. Newcastle City Council, however, concluded that the project was not compatible with the UK’s climate targets or its own commitment to net-zero by 2030 and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Moreover, the UK Government has enshrined in law a commitment to stop the use of thermal coal power plants by 2024 – a deadline recently brought forward from 2025. The ban does not apply to the materials sectors Banks Mining was intending to supply, but there is the risk that legislation will become tighter in the near future.

In response to the global climate emergency, the Scottish Government brought forward primary legislation to amend Scotland’s emissions reduction targets. In October 2019, the Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Act 2019 received Royal Assent and was commenced in March 2020, setting annual and interim emissions reduction targets for Scotland, on a trajectory to net zero emissions by 2045. These targets include the interim goal of a 75% reduction in emissions by 2030 (relative to the 1990 baseline). The updated plan also includes a number of policies in various areas, most of which will be taken forward through legislation throughout 2021.

As a result, Federal Law of 15 October 2020 # 321-FZ "On Amendments to Part Two of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation" introduces a "reverse excise tax" (deduction) on ethane and LPG which will depend on the volume of investments in petrochemical facilities. Companies will be eligible for the compensation only if they sign a special agreement with the Ministry of Energy and invest in new or modernized facilities from 1 January 2022. The financial and economic feasibility assessment prepared by the State Duma's Budget and Tax Committee estimates the size of the compensation to companies at RUB 10.4 billion in 2022, RUB 14.5 billion in 2023 and RUB 15.5 billion in 2024. A more recent official document, namely the Explanatory Note prepared by the State Duma's Budget and Tax Committee and accompanying the draft Federal Law on "Federal Budget for 2021 and Planned Period of 2022 and 2023" estimates the cost of the compensation to the federal budget at RUB 14.676 billion in 2022 (Table 3.21 on page 60).

The first one cancels the export tax relief on superviscous oil. The second law abolishes certain Mineral Extraction Tax (MET) reliefs on mature deposits as well as MET reliefs on superviscous oil. The third law offsets some of the increased tax burden on companies by providing a MET relief on oil extraction at certain newly developed fields in the Khanty-Mansiisk disctrict of Western Siberia, e.g. the giant Priobskoe field developed by Rosneft, on the condition of the conclusion of an investment agreement by 1 July 2021. The most recent official document, namely the Explanory Note prepared by the State Duma's Budget and Tax Committee and accompanying the draft Federal Law on "Federal Budget for 2021 and Planned Period of 2022 and 2023" puts the cumulative increase in the federal budget revenue due to the three laws' measures at RUB 131,8281 billion in 2021 (Table 3.2 on page 40).

It increases the Additional Income Tax (AIT) on hydrocarbon extraction. The measure was passed in parallel with the so called "completion of the tax manouvre" of the upstream oil and gas sector, initiated several years ago, and adoption of some additional tax benefits for the upstream oil and gas industry in 2020 (e.g. Federal Laws #65, #340). So the cumulative effect is mixed. Independent estimates of the increased tax burden on the oil and gas extractive industry vary. For example, the Renaissance capital puts it at at RUB 260 billion for 2021, equivalent to 3.3% of the government’s tax take in 2019 from the Russian oil and gas sector. The tax burden is expected to increase mainly on LUKOIL, Surgutneftegaz and Tatneft, while "national champions" Rosneft and, to a lesser extent, Gazprom secured additional tax benefits in 2020 that help to mitigate the impact of these Tax Code Amendments. The most recent official document, namely the Explanory Note prepared by the State Duma's Budget and Tax Committee and accompanying the draft Federal Law on "Federal Budget for 2021 and Planned Period of 2022 and 2023" puts the overall increase in the federal budget revenue due to the Additional Income Tax on hydrocarbons at RUB 94,9052 billion in 2021 (Table 3.2 on page 40)."

One year ahead of the COP26 climate summit, the network of leaders is urging the government to act faster and to give them more powers to tackle the climate crisis. The group, which is coordinated by the non-governmental organisation UK100, will sign the ‘UK100 Net Zero Pledge’ which explicitly commits them to neutralise their emissions by 2030 and those of their residents by 2045. The leaders have also agreed to limit the use of offsets, only using them as a last resource when reducing emissions to net-zero at source is not possible. They have also committed to annual reporting of their progress, from 2022 onwards.

This policy will see the UK end export finance, aid funding and trade promotion for new crude oil, natural gas or thermal coal projects, with very limited exceptions. This is a significant change –in the last four years, the government supported £21 billion of UK oil and gas exports through trade promotion and export finance. The policy will be implemented after a short period of consultation and is intended to come into force as soon as possible, and before COP26 next November. The government will work with the UK’s oil and gas sector to support the move to low carbon energy sources through the North Sea Transition Deal, ensuring areas like Teesside and Aberdeen can become global hubs for wind energy, carbon capture and other clean technologies of the future.

The global green bonds market has surged in recent years, with analyst Moody's recently projecting total issuance worldwide could grow to between $175bn and $225bn by the end of 2020. But while a growing number of countries, including the likes of Germany and Sweden have issued sovereign green bonds, the UK has yet to do so. Meanwhile, the fast-growing sector has been dogged by concerns that a lack of clarity over what constitutes a green or climate bond could result in some nominally green funding being channelled to support polluting infrastructure. Moreover, in addition to issuing its first green gilts, the UK will seek to implement a green taxonomy that would provide a common framework for determining which activities can be defined as environmentally sustainable, building on EU's on-going efforts to develop its own green taxonomy.

This change is expected to result in an annual reduction of up to one megatonne of greenhouse gas emissions in 2030. Notably, this final regulation is weaker than what was put forth in Ontario's climate plan, which stated "increasing the ethanol content of gasoline to 15% as early as 2025". The regulation also delays the compliance period for fuel suppliers in response to the pandemic. Most of the ethanol produced in Ontario is made from locally-grown corn rather than biomass waste -- and this announcement or the accompanying materials do not mention any safeguards that would make these “advanced: or “second” or “third generation” biofuels, so this policy is classified as 'Other energy'.

Hydrogen, which is used today mainly in the chemical and petrochemical industry, in the future can become one of the drivers of energy development and the basis for the formation of a hydrogen economy in the country. 01/01/2021 The Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Education and Science and the Ministry of Natural Resources were instructed to develop a concept for the development of hydrogen energy in the first quarter of 2021 and prepare proposals to stimulate the development of hydrogen technologies. The agencies must also develop measures of state support for pilot projects for the production of hydrogen, including the creation of pilot plants. In the second quarter of 2021, it is necessary to develop ways to stimulate the export and domestic demand of energy-generating hydrogen, to formulate proposals for the introduction of hydrogen in production and transport.In 2024, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Education and Science and the Ministry of Economy, with the participation of Gazprom and Rosatom, will have to ensure the creation, production and use of hydrogen without carbon dioxide emissions, testing of gas turbines running on methane-hydrogen fuel and the creation of a prototype hydrogen railway transport. The hydrogen will be made mainly from natural gas ("blue hydrogen") and nuclear energy ("yellow hydrogen").

Establishment of a new offshore exploration initiative to provide companies with the incentive to drill more wells by funding a percentage of well costs beyond the first well drilled on a license. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has also established an oil and gas industry recovery task force. Annually, the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) issues calls for bids for exploration licences in the province’s offshore. The sole criterion for selecting a winning bid is the total amount of money the bidder commits to spend on exploration of the parcel. The successful bidder is required to post a security deposit for 25 per cent of the work expenditure bid. If the bidder does not meet its work commitment, the security deposit is forfeit and the investment opportunity is lost. Under this new policy, forfeited security deposits can be reinvested into offshore exploration projects.

These include tax incentives by the local and regional authorities and a reimbursement of a part of the insurance premiums paid to the state extrabudgetary fund. Resident support measures also include subsidies to reimburse the interest rate on loans and the costs of payment of a coupon yield on bonds, issued for the implementation of the investment agreement. Some of these support measures are likely to benefit fossil fuel companies. Previously, Vice prime minister Trutnev stated that the corresponding preferences will be divided into 5 groups, each with its own incentives: offshore extraction projects; projects for the construction of LPG and gas processing plants; projects for the development of new oil fields in the Eastern Arctic; projects for the extraction of solid minerals; other projects, including small and medium businesses. Additionally, Article 27 of the law mentions that the Russian Tax Code establishes federal tax benefits for organizations that carry out the prospecting and evaluation of hydrocarbon deposits, exploration and (or) extraction of hydrocarbon raw materials, and organizations carrying out activities related to the production of hydrocarbon raw materials at new offshore hydrocarbon deposits in the Arctic zone.

According to the Act, coal-fired power production in the country will come to an end no later than 2038. The law paves the way for a EUR 40 billion support programme for the economic transformation of coal regions and legislation to compensate coal plant operators for shutting down capacity. In particular, the Act stipulates that a total of EUR 4.35 billion in compensation will be paid for the planned shutdowns by 2030 (see separate entry in the Tracker). Further, the government would introduce adaptation payments for older workers in lignite mines and hard coal and lignite power plants who lose their jobs due to the coal exit plans, with a budget of up to EUR 5 billion by 2048. The Coal Phase-Out Act was passed 18 months after the issue of multi-stakeholder Coal Exit Commission's recommendations, so it has its roots well before the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis and government responses to it. The Act has implications for both coal and other energy types, hence it is classified here as "Other Energy". The European Commission has green-lit the scheme on Wednesday 25 November.

The deal is part of Germany’s effort to completely wean off coal by no later than 2038 and covers a total of 4.35 billion euros in payments to utilities, which will also waive any rights for future lawsuits if they sign it. RWE and Leag (owned 50-50% owned by Czech energy group EPH and private equity group PPF Investments), are by far the largest operators of lignite, or brown coal, power plants and mines in Germany. The Coal Phase Out Act (Gesetz zur Reduzierung und zur Beendigung der Kohleverstromung und zur Änderung weiterer Gesetze (Kohleausstiegsgesetz)) passed on 3 July 2020 (see separate entry) underlies the plan to phase out coal by 2038. The Act stipulates that a total of EUR 4.35 billion in compensation will be paid for the planned shutdowns by 2030. Western German power company RWE will receive EUR 2.6 billion for shutting down its plants by the end of 2029. EUR 1.75 billion will go to operations in the eastern German district Lusatia, run by the Lausitz Energie Kraftwerk AG (LEAG). Part of the money will not go to LEAG itself but to a trustee confirmed by the government. The compensation does not change in case the operators shut down plants earlier than planned. The Coal Phase Out Act was passed 18 months after the issue of multi-stakeholder Coal Exit commission Recommendations, so it has its roots well before the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis and government responses to it. However, this measure is included in the Tracker as a new policy that involves a significant public expenditure. It is classified as "fossil conditional" because, despite the end goal of phasing out coal, it pays the polluters. The law was passed by both chambers of the Parliament on 3 July. As of 28 July, the Coal Phase Out Act was still awaiting signature of the Federal President, upon which it will enter into force the next day.

The plan was anticipated to launch earlier in the year but has been delayed. News reports suggest that the private sector has lost interest following other changes in the regulation of the power sector by the National Electricity Commission, in combination with the low oil prices, leaving these investments in limbo.

The Federal Electricity Commission (Comisión Federal de Electricidad - CFE) increased the rates paid by private electricity providers (generators) for using the public transmission network (the "tarifa de porteo"). These new rates were published after the Energy Regulatory Commission (Comisión Reguladora de Energía -CRE) approved a petition by the national electricity company to increase the costs to private electricity generators. The high and medium-transmission rates changed from 0.049 pesos to 0.2785 and 0.2586 pesos per KW/hr, an increase of 469 and 428%, respectively. The low-tension transmission rate was increased from 0.09799 pesos to 0.8928 pesos per KW/hr, an increase of 811%. The new transmission tariff, know as the "porteo estampilla y porteo térmico" will be applied to thermal plants as well as plantas de autoabastecimiento and renewables considered "legacy plants", meaning their licenses were given by the regulating commission before the Law for Electricity Industry ("Ley de la Industria Eléctrica - LIE). These new transmission tariffs follow assertions by the national government and others that the national electricity company is losing money from the low fees paid by private energy providers.
