Fossilized Finances: State and Federal Oil and Gas Subsidies in the Permian Basin

The Permian is by far the largest oil producing basin in the United States and the second largest for natural gas. Firms in the region have been highly profitable, yet have continued to benefit from a wide array of government subsidies. Some of the subsidies have been in place for decades, though new ones continue to be introduced as well. All of the subsidies work against the need to decarbonize our economy and erode the competitive positioning of lower-carbon substitutes.

World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2023

The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2023 (WNISR2023) provides a comprehensive overview (in 549 pages) of the status and trends within the international nuclear industry, including data on nuclear power plant starts and operation, production, fleet age, and construction. The WNISR evaluates the status of newbuild programs in existing as well as in potential newcomer nuclear countries, and looks at the status of Small Modular Reactor (SMR) development.

An Introduction to Energy Subsidies Presentation Slides, March 2023

An overview on the varied approaches used to subsidize industries and how the scale of support flowing to fossil fuels and other environmentally harmful activities undermines efforts to decarbonize the economy and protect global biodiversity. The slides highlight how at present subsidies to fossil fuel greatly exceed carbon revenues from taxes and permits, and environmentally harmful subsidies overall greatly exceed EHS reduction targets agreed to under the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.

Government support in industrial sectors: a synthesis report

Industrial subsidies take on a growing importance in trade discussions. Yet assessing the scope and scale of government interventions in manufacturing remains notoriously difficult due to a persistent lack of reliable and comparable data. With many governments failing to provide sufficient information, attention has increasingly turned to firm-level data as a possible alternative for measuring industrial subsidies. Using this approach, recent OECD work has identified and quantified government support across key industrial sectors and policy instruments.
