Fossil Fuel Subsidies 2019, Ireland

Document Summary: 
The Central Statistics Office (CSO) of Ireland released information on their 2019 fossil fuel subsidies through a press statement, statistical publication and infographic. The report analyses the average effective carbon rate per tonne of carbon dioxide emitted for the main fossil fuels. The report also combines direct fossil fuel subsidies such as the Public Service Obligation (PSO) Levy support to electricity generation from peat with indirect subsidies such as the amount of revenue foregone by the State through lower excise duty rates to estimate the total cost of fossil fuel subsidies.
