Select countries in Asia-Pacific

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, governments in Select countries in Asia-Pacific have committed at least USD 87.22 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 28.48 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 46 policies (23 quantified and 23 unquantified)
  • At least USD 6.62 billion for conditional fossil fuels through 4 policies (2 quantified and 2 unquantified)
  • At least USD 2.71 billion for unconditional clean energy through 40 policies (19 quantified and 21 unquantified)
  • At least USD 28.81 billion for conditional clean energy through 28 policies (16 quantified and 12 unquantified)
  • At least USD 20.61 billion for other energy through 15 policies (6 quantified and 9 unquantified)

By energy type, Select countries in Asia-Pacific committed at least USD 14.24 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 13.41 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 821.32 million to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, Select countries in Asia-Pacific committed at least USD 17.49 billion to coal (at least USD 11.69 billion to unconditional coal and at least USD 5.80 billion to conditional coal).

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

Finally, Select countries in Asia-Pacific committed at least USD 3.13 billion to multiple fossil fuels (at least USD 3.13 billion to unconditional multiple fossil fuels).

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of Select countries in Asia-Pacific 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.

Each of the projects is estimated to cist approximately Rs 6,000 crore. While CTL is the latest technology being deployed, the bid to find cleaner use for coal was launched with a Rs 13,000-crore coal-to-gas, or coal gasification, project in Angul district of Odisha. The gas produced from coal will be used for making urea at the Talcher fetiliser plant in the district.

China National Clean conditional Investments in electric vehicle charging infrastructure Mobility Multiple energy types Budget or off-budget transfer ... 1421464108.0313 2020041010/04/2020 Fiscal Energy use (all energy types, consumption in transport, household use, buildings etc) Government Primary: ease the burden of struggling automakers and reverse the downward trend in sales Secondary: step up efforts to maintain the country's global leadership in the EV adoption race RMB 10,000,000,000 10000000000 This is a key stimulus measure to increase by 50 precent the electric vehicle charging network in China from its current level. This should enable 600,000 new charging points to be built in 2020. China is behind its original target of reaching 4.8 million charging points to accommodate 5 million EVs on the roads by 2020. Germany is also currently providing more subsidies to EVs than China in a bid to outrun it in the EV race. As part of its development plan for the new-energy vehicle industry, China also set the goal that by 2021 at least 80 per cent of all public sector vehicles – including buses, taxis and municipal trucks – operating in ecological pilot zones and areas with high levels of air pollution would be driven by clean energy.
