ENTTRANSProject reference: 22673
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES
The potential of transferring and implementing sustainable energy technologies through the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol
Total cost:EUR 694 540
EU contribution:EUR 694 540
Call for proposal:FP6-2004-SSP-4
Funding scheme:SSA - Specific Support Action
The proposed study will carry out the following activities:
1. Conduct an extensive overview and evaluation of the state of play with the CDM, such as CDM funding programmes established by investor country governments and private sector entities, policy initiatives undertaken by developing countries for hosting CDM projects, GHG accounting methodologies approved by the CDM Executive Board, potential barriers to CDM project implementation, and the appropriate financial mechanisms.
2. Prepare an assessment of the state-of-play regarding the three technology options: decentralised electricity production systems, efficiency improvement of fuel switch, and CO2 capture and storage. This will include: an analysis of the status of each technology in terms of research and development progress and/or market penetration within the EU and on a global scale with the upstream and downstream supply scheme as a basis of transfer under the CDM, as well as an assessment of barriers to technology implementation.
3. Combining the analysis under 1) and 2) by exploring requirements for energy technology diffusion to developing countries and the extent to which the CDM could support this process.
4. Dissemination of the results from 1-3 to policy makers in the EU and in developing countries.
