The global society is faced with a huge challenge in order to meet the threat given by global warming. SETatWork - Sustainable Energy Technologies at Work aims to meet this challenge through the collaboration and partnerships between organisations in EU, Asia and South America.

A key project task consists in identifying Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects in markets in China, India, South East Asia (focus on Thailand), Africa and Latin America (focus on Chile) in combination with the transfer of European technology and know-how. Part of this activity will be to promote concepts like CDM programmatic approaches that imply good perspectives for improving the CDM, especially in the field of energy efficiency.

These efforts are to be accompanied by matchmaking activities in order to facilitate the realisation of the identified opportunities, e.g. to match stakeholders involved in energy efficiency and savings in European industry sectors, as well as European technology and service providers, with project owners and other stakeholders in the CDM countries.

The main objective of this regional facilitation workshop is to create a platform for close interaction between:

  1. CDM project developers in India,
  2. sellers and buyers of carbon credits,
  3. Sustainable Energy Technology providers and
  4. Industries in EU-ETS

by highlighting the technologies needed and the technologies available in developed countries to promote energy efficiency in India by facilitating Business to Business (B2B) meetings.

Event Summary

TERI, as a part of the Sustainable Energy Technologies at Work (SETatWork) project under the European Commission's (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), organized this matchmaking event between Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project developers & EU stakeholders in the field of Energy Efficiency (EE) and Energy Saving Technologies (EST) in New Delhi on 15-16th of March, 2010. The event was well attended and covered a range of topics around energy efficiency and CDM in India and how companies in EU can offer their services to meet the technological requirements of Indian Industry so as to promote technology transfer.

The first day of the event comprised of presentations and panel discussions on energy efficiency and role of CDM in promoting it in India. Experts from industry, research organizations and European stakeholders shared their perspective with the audience that mainly comprised of representatives from industrial units. The first session covered the topic of energy efficiency in India. The speakers provided a round of energy efficiency situation in India and highlighted the technological challenges to achieve energy efficiency measures that the country plans to undertake. EU agencies and companies shared their experience regarding undertaking activities in Indian markets. Technologies available with EU companies especially on decentralized energy solutions were dealt in detail during the session. The second session being a technical session on CDM provided an overview on technologies available and the measures undertaken by Indian companies to avail benefits from CDM. Role and expectations from bi-lateral partners were also discussed. The session provided a comprehensive picture of energy efficiency efforts and their inter-linkage with carbon markets in India. The final session provided a buyer perspective on the sector. The speakers shared the buying models put into practice by them to formulate and provide an offer that is both acceptable to the buyer and seller of carbon credits. The session clearly brought out that the energy efficiency though is in good demand by the buyers, however, small size of such projects tends to make them less lucrative for the buyers, especially those on lookout for large CDM projects.

The second day of the event was focused on providing close interaction opportunities amongst the EU representatives and Indian company representatives. Partners from SETatWork, representatives from GTZ India, EBTC and Intersuez were available for undertaking one to one meetings with the participants to discuss and identify areas of possible technological collaboration. The aim of such collaboration as part of the project was to promote actual technology transfer. The event thus provided a platform to the participants to share their needs with financing agencies and potential technology providers. The meetings were intense and it is anticipated that the discussions would result in actual implementation in due course of time.

All the presentations are available below.

The SETatWork website also acts as a platform where companies can register their details for free, to promote their organization and projects or find partners for future collaboration within key industries. These details will be entered into the database maintained by the consortium, which contains a range of companies including technology provides, project developers, industry contacts, etc.
