Browse the 1600+ policies, spanning over 67 countries, underlying the Government Energy Spending Tracker

About this database

The Government Energy Spending Tracker measures two types of energy spending: clean energy investment support and consumer energy affordability measures.

  • Clean energy investment support includes all government spending that directly underpins increasing levels of clean energy investment.
  • Consumer energy affordability measures includes all measures intended to help consumers and enterprises weather high energy prices in light of the global energy crisis. This category includes policies enacted by governments in response to the international price rise that materialised in the fourth quarter of 2021 and was further aggravated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The IEA also tracks energy subsidies via a price gap methodology.
