Select countries in Latin America

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, governments in Select countries in Latin America have committed at least USD 9.34 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 4.32 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 33 policies (7 quantified and 26 unquantified)
  • Some public money committed for conditional fossil fuels (3 policies with the value of public money unquantified)
  • At least USD 1.68 billion for unconditional clean energy through 17 policies (10 quantified and 7 unquantified)
  • At least USD 19.27 million for conditional clean energy through 1 policy (1 quantified)
  • At least USD 3.32 billion for other energy through 17 policies (8 quantified and 9 unquantified)

By energy type, Select countries in Latin America committed at least USD 4.32 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 4.32 billion to unconditional oil and gas).

In addition, no public money commitments identified for 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 Select countries in Latin America 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.

The objective is to reduce risks of default and increase access to credits for such projects. 23/07/2020 30 million BRL 30000000 "The National Electricity Conservation Program (Procel) will contribute R $ 30 million to the Energy Efficiency Guarantee Fund (FGEnergia) of the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES). These non-reimbursable funds will be used to support energy efficiency projects through the provision of guarantees. Energy efficiency projects from different sectors of the economy may be contemplated. "In practice, the guarantee offered reduces the risk of default assumed by financiers and, thus, increases the possibility of access to credit for the borrower. The Fund's guarantee mechanism provides for the coverage of part of the risk of financial agents with these operations, through the granting of a guarantee that may reach 80% of the total credit, and will be subject to the validation of technical criteria of the project related to energy efficiency.

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.
