Perform Achieve Trade (PAT) scheme

  • The Perform Achieve Trade (PAT) is an innovative, market-based trading scheme announced by the Indian Government in 2008.
  • It is under the National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE) in the National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC).
  • It aims to improve energy efficiency in industries by trading in energy efficiency certificates in energy-intensive sectors.
  • The scheme is being designed and implemented by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), under the Ministry of Power of India.
  • The PAT Scheme is being implemented in three phases- the first phase runs from 2012-2015 covering 478 facilities from eight energy-intensive sectors, namely aluminum, cement, chor-alkali, fertilizer, iron and steel, pulp and paper, textiles and thermal power plants.
  • The PAT scheme establishes plant-specific targets rather than a sectoral target.
