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.
