Select non-OECD countries

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, governments in Select non-OECD countries have committed at least USD 280.19 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 84.85 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 133 policies (56 quantified and 77 unquantified)
  • At least USD 39.82 billion for conditional fossil fuels through 32 policies (9 quantified and 23 unquantified)
  • At least USD 12.30 billion for unconditional clean energy through 113 policies (37 quantified and 76 unquantified)
  • At least USD 51.88 billion for conditional clean energy through 49 policies (14 quantified and 35 unquantified)
  • At least USD 91.34 billion for other energy through 95 policies (24 quantified and 71 unquantified)

By energy type, Select non-OECD countries committed at least USD 49.82 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 48.95 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 869.44 million to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, Select non-OECD countries committed at least USD 70.60 billion to coal (at least USD 32.27 billion to unconditional coal and at least USD 38.33 billion to conditional coal).

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

Finally, Select non-OECD countries committed at least USD 3.15 billion to multiple fossil fuels (at least USD 3.15 billion to unconditional multiple fossil fuels).

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of Select non-OECD 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.

Multiple sectors Non-applicable (non-energy measure) Uncategorized 2021102929/10/2021 Non-applicable (non-energy measure) Government of Russia Government "Achieving carbon neutrality with sustainable economic growth; In the target scenario, ensuring the competitiveness and sustainable economic growth of Russia in the context of global energy transition is identified as a key task. The action plan for the implementation of the strategy is planned to be developed within six months. This will be handled by the Ministry of Economic Development. The implementation of climate projects will begin next year. Starting from 2023, Russia plans to launch a system of mandatory carbon reporting for enterprises." 29/10/2021 "The strategy includes two scenarios – inertial and target (intensive). The target scenario is taken as a basis. The scenarios differ in sets of measures to decarbonize the Russian economy. The macroeconomic conditions of the target scenario assume a faster growth rate of non-energy exports - up to 4.4% annually. The contribution to the sustainable growth of the economy will be made by both the outpacing growth rates of investments in fixed assets (3.7% annually) and the stable growth of real disposable income (2.5% annually). At the same time, a more moderate drop in energy exports from 2030 is expected than in the inertial scenario, including due to the reorientation to high-value-added products and the implementation of measures to increase the competitiveness of Russian energy exports in foreign markets. As a result, the annual growth rates of the economy remain above the global average until 2050 (up to 3% per year), the Cabinet of Ministers emphasizes. The implementation of the target scenario will require investments in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the amount of about 1% of GDP in 2022-2030 and up to 1.5-2% of GDP in 2031-2050. Among the decarbonization measures announced are the provision of support measures for the introduction, replication and scaling of low- and carbon-free technologies, promotion of the use of secondary energy resources, changes in tax, customs and budget policies, the development of green financing, measures to preserve and increase the absorption capacity of forests and other ecosystems, support for technologies for capturing, using and disposing of greenhouse gases. Thus, within the framework of the target scenario, economic growth will be possible with a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions: by 2050 by 60% from the level of 2019 and by 80% from the level of 1990. Further implementation of this scenario will allow Russia to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. "

The Government has declared Kenya Power a “special government project” as it takes a more hands-on approach in the affairs of the power distributor. Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i yesterday announced that the government had initiated a restructuring process at the troubled electricity distributor with plans to cut power costs by 30 per cent by December. Matiang’i said an inter-ministerial team had been set up to “audit KPLC and oversight urgent reforms in the company”. This will mean the government will increasingly play a bigger role in over-sighting the company in which it has a 50.1 per cent stake and is a critical player in the running of the economy being the sole power distributor. He also announced a planned forensic audit of Kenya Power’s systems that will be spearheaded by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). The audit is expected to reveal the extent of the rot in the country’s electricity sector and might claim officials, current and former, within the company as well as the industry who may have had a hand in bringing down the firm.

This is a major announcement which has important repercussions for other countries dependent on coal financing. This could lead to a USD 50 billion slash in investments and a significant greening of China's belt and road initiative while forcing coal financiers such as the Bank of China to set up a timetable to withdraw from the sector. That being said, the exact details of the announcement remain to be set, including the timetable for the exit, the eligibility and the separation between public and private financing. Three days after Xi's speech, the Bank of China declared it would no longer provide financing for new coal mining and power projects outside China from the last quarter of 2021.

The first phase of the investment corresponds to USD 3.5 billion and is reported as such here. The volume of gas resources in the field is estimated at 200 trillion cubic feet of rich raw gas, which will provide a valuable feedstock for the petrochemical industries. The Company expects the field’s production, to commence early 2024, to reach approximately 2.2 billion standard cubic feet per day of sales gas by 2036, with an associated approximately 425 million standard cubic feet per day of ethane, representing about 40 percent of current production. The Company also expects the field to produce approximately 550 thousand barrels per day of gas liquids and condensates. Development of the field over 22 years should provide the government a net income of about 32 billion riyals annually and contribute 75 billion riyals to the kingdom’s gross domestic product according to the Saudi press Agency. Aramco is keen on developing domestic gas production in order to shift from crude oil to gas exports and to use gas domestially for power generation and as an industrial feedstock.

Power generation Multiple renewable Uncategorized 2021031818/03/2021 Electricity generation Department of Mineral Resources and Energy Government To scale up renewables 18/03/2021 Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe released the names of the eight preferred bidders selected as part of government’s 2 000-MW ‘emergency’ procurement programme and also launched the much-anticipated fifth bid window (BW5) for the procurement of new wind and solar. 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.

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.

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).

Russia National Fossil unconditional Tax Code amendments raising the Additional Income Tax on oil and gas production Resources Oil and gas Increased fossil fuel taxation -1316208307.3296 2020101515/10/2020 Exploration or production or processing or storage or transportation Federal Law of 15 October 2020 #342-FZ "On Amendments to Chapters 25-4 and 26 of Part Two of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation" Government To increase government revenue from upstream taxation oil oil and gas 01/01/2021 -94905200000 "The new Federal Law # 342 “On Amendments to Chapters 25.4 and 26 of Part Two of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation" was approved on 15 October 2020 and came into force on 1 January 2020. 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)."

The objective is to reduce risks of default and increase access to credits for such projects. 23/07/2020 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. With an initial investment of R $ 30 million, FGEnergia will be able to generate guarantees for approximately R $ 200 million in energy efficiency projects throughout Brazil."

In early 2020, oil price plummeted on the global market, which warranted a pass-through of price reductions on domestic consumers in Saudi Arabia. The May cut in domestic prices amounted to around 50%, bringing them at the below-market level again. Fuel price adjustment remains subject to change, according to changes in export prices of crude oil.
