The report by the OECD on Taxing Energy Use 2018: Companion to the Taxing Energy Use Database assesses the magnitude and coverage of taxes on energy use – carbon taxes and other specific taxes on energy use – in 2015, across different countries and selected country groups, six sectors and five main fuel groups. It also considers changes in effective tax rates on energy use between 2012 and 2015. The analysis is based on the OECD’s Taxing Energy Use database which compares the coverage and magnitude of specific taxes on energy use across 42 OECD and G20 economies.

The report is available online on the OECD website
