Supporting Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas Policies (4 Lots)
For the successful implementation of Regulation (EU) No. 517/2014, it is necessary to put a contract in place for the future (Lot 2) to support implementation. Likewise international negotiations need technical input and outreach on our policies is necessary (Lot 1). The phase-down needs to be implemented smoothly and a close following of its impacts on the market is necessary (Lot 3). In order to fulfil our obligations under Article 21(2) and 21(4) of the Regulation, requiring reports on HFC availability and alternatives to using SF6 in switchgear as well as alternatives that could replace HFCs in split air conditioning, it is necessary to put lot 4 in place.
