About Energy

Our experts offer practical guidance to help authorities choose the right system of electricity generation and reduce consumption of fossil-based transport fuels, and to implement international climate change commitments.

We work side-by-side with local partners for less costly, more equitable energy systems. Aware of international policy developments, we identify wasteful practices, encourage new thinking, engage civil society and support policy reform.

    Raising Ambition Through Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform: Greenhouse gas emissions results modelling from 26 countries

    This working paper models 26 countries and finds national average emission reductions of 6 per cent from the removal of fossil fuel subsidies. For every tonne of CO2e removed through FFSR, governments save an average of USD 93. Global emission reductions from reforms are between 6.4 and 8.2 per cent by 2050. Countries can consider the carbon reduction co-benefits from FFSR and taxation within second-generation Nationally Determined Contributions.
