These CER can then be traded and sold, and used by industrialized countries to a meet a part of their emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol.
This document has been arranged by theTECH4DCM project, financed by FP6 (Sixth Framework Programme). This EU Project focuses on promoting solar thermal energy and is being carried out in five countries: Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. The projectâs primary goal is the promotion of renewable and efficient energy technologies, paying special attention to overcoming technological barriers.
