T@W: Sustainable Energy Technology at Work on the market generated by the EU Emission Trade Scheme and the linked CDM and JI markets
1 April 2006-31 March 2008

The T@W Project took place from 1 April 2006 to 31 March 2008. However, many of its activities are being continued in the FP7 Project SETatWork (1 September 2008-31 October 2010), which had a particular emphasis on Energy Efficiency.

Project acronym: T@W
Project full title: Sustainable Energy Technology at Work on the market generated by the EU Emission Trade Scheme and the linked CDM and JI markets
Contract no: TREN/05/FP6EN/S07.55796/020065
Start date of contract: 1 April 2006
Duration: 24 Months

Background

Reducing climate change and promoting technology innovations that supports a sustainable future is a global challenge. Meeting this goal is a common responsibility. The EU is committed to join the effort to tackle climate change as a party to the Kyoto Protocol. This requires not only political willingness but also commitments from private actors to see opportunities and help spur technology innovations.

TatW strives at uniformed effort on addressing the EU interests in the carbon markets, comprising EU policy goals as well as business opportunities. The TatW team welcomes all EU actors and cooperation partners outside EU to join our mission and enhance Sustainable Technologies at Work.

Mission

Connecting sustainable development to business opportunities...

... to position European Sustainable Energy Technologies at emerging climate markets

... to facilitate a sound development at the EU Emission Trading Markets

... to support business cooperation between innovative actors at the climate markets

Objectives

The overall objective of the T@W project was to undertake thematic promotion of RES-e, RES heating and cooling and Polygeneration (Sustainable Energy Technologies, SET) at emerging Emission Trading Scheme markets in EU (EU ETS) and CDM markets in Asia. The T@W action aimed to exploit FP RTD results at these markets, thereby bringing SET to the market. Hence the short title: Technology at Work - T@W.

The T@W project had the expected impact of paving the way for SET uptake on the EU ETS covered companies and in the Asian CDM field and raising a general awareness of high standard SET/RTD technologies, thereby facilitating European companies to comply with their CO2 obligations, and providing markets for the SET in EU and Asia.

To summarise, the key aims of the T@W Project were to:

  • Assist EU ETS companies to develop CO2 projects at their own installations
  • Assist EU ETS companies to develop CDM projects in Asia
  • Assist European SET suppliers in entering EU ETS and CDM markets
Activities

The T@W action consisted of 5 work packages:

Partners

The T@W project consisted of 13 partners from Europe and 5 partners from Asia:

Work Package Coordinators:

European Partners: European partners in T@W contributed by identifying key information for the project and supporting SET/RTD promotion in target areas.

Asian Partners: Asian partners in T@W contributed by identifying key information of EU relevance for the project and supporting SET/RTD promotion in target areas
