Section II: Object
Support to the Commission for the determination of the carbon leakage list post-2020 under the EU emission trading system.
Once the ETS Directive is revised (ongoing legislative process), the carbon leakage list valid for the period 2021 to 2030 will have to be established. The Commission therefore requires support from an external consultant in collecting and processing the relevant data and, in particular, in ensuring the quality of the data, addressing data gaps and performing cross-checks. Based on the data collected, 3 different types of assessments (each with their specific requirements) will have to be carried out and the contractor is supposed to provide support in this process.
The Commission requires support in collecting data, ensuring its quality and addressing data gaps, performing cross-checks and validation and providing analysis and proposed ways forward in case of data inconsistencies or discrepancies.
The contract will have 3 tasks: first, provide support in carrying out quantitative assessments (collect data, process it, perform data cross-checks), second, provide support with additional assessments (analyse data submitted, ensure a comparably robust approach for all types of assessments, perform cross-checks and ensure data quality) and third, provide support to the Commission in its communication activities. The deliverables linked to the 3 tasks are therefore tables (including underlying data), explanatory notes (regarding data issues and related solutions found), brief analysis papers and presentations.
