Companion dataset to Taxing Energy Use for Sustainable Development (TEU-SD): Opportunities for energy tax and subsidy reform in selected developing and emerging economies.
Taxing Energy Use (TEU), an OECD flagship publication, maps energy and carbon taxes applicable to energy consumption, ensuring strict comparability of results across the 44 OECD and G20 countries covered. TEU is the most detailed and comprehensive stocktake of the state of energy taxation currently available, and it is widely used as a tool to identify priorities for energy tax reform.
The Taxing Energy Use for Sustainable Development project, of which the main results are reported in the respective brochure, has extended country coverage to 15 developing and emerging economies, while adapting the methodology to the developing and emerging country context as needed. In addition to providing detailed information on energy and carbon taxes in these countries, the project has also identified the principal subsidies on domestic energy use.
The project aims to enable policy makers and analysts to assess the relative magnitude of taxes and subsidies across all energy sources and users in a variety of countries. The use of a common methodology ensures comparability across countries. Summary indicators facilitate cross-country comparisons.
A key output of the project are country notes highlighting energy taxes and subsidies on energy use. These country notes provide a solid evidence base for in-depth country analysis and allow for the identification of future, country-specific reform priorities. Country notes include estimates of the revenue effects of subsidy removal as well as energy and carbon tax reform.
The project was carried out with the financial support from the governments of Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Tax and subsidy data was collected via publicly available official sources and consultation with government officials and independent experts who were asked to review and refine the data. Energy use data was adapted from International Energy Agency (IEA), World Energy Statistics and Balances.
