These public money commitments include:

  • At least USD 31.86 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 76 policies (30 quantified and 46 unquantified)
  • At least USD 6.62 billion for conditional fossil fuels through 5 policies (2 quantified and 3 unquantified)
  • At least USD -115.96 million for unconditional clean energy through 33 policies (11 quantified and 22 unquantified)
  • At least USD 27.66 billion for conditional clean energy through 21 policies (8 quantified and 13 unquantified)

By energy type, Select non-OECD countries committed at least USD 19.99 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 19.17 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 821.32 million to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, Select non-OECD countries committed at least USD 15.13 billion to coal (at least USD 9.32 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 non-OECD countries 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 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.

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.

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").

It sets the strategic goals in the fuel and energy complex to be operationalised by other government activities, including funding under ongoing federal target programs. The Strategy pursues meeting domestic energy demands and increased exports. The Strategy recognises the "inevitability of new geopolitical and global economic crises" and forecasts 5-9 per cent growth in fuel production by 2024 (over 2018), an increase in fuel and energy exports of 9 to 15 per cent, and increases in investment in the industry by 1.35–1.4 times based mostly on fossil fuel developments, with some targets for nuclear, hydropower, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.

According to the recent document, the government provided 53.4 billion RMB to local governments for encouraging their fiscal spending on the renovation of old urban residential communities. This spending encourages some green investments, such as the Energy-saving improvement on old buildings and the installation of charging stations . Since only an unquantified part of the renovation programme is linked to clean energy, this measure is classified here as "other energy".

The resources will be used as grants to support energy efficiency projects through guarantees in different sectors of the economy. 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. 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.
