The E-TRACK Project provides a detailed insight into the tracking of electricity, the requirements for the design and operation of tracking systems, which are set by market players, EU and Member States' legislation, covering 30 European countries, and offers a blue print for a European-wide standard for these tracking systems. This website provides industry, policy makers, regulators, consumer groups and other stakeholders with a place to obtain information regarding the tracking of electricity and related issues, to get involved in the discussions, and to find out about the E-TRACK Project, phases I and II.

Phase I of the project was completed in June 2007. All reports are available on this website under the item E-TRACK - Phase I -Archives

Phase II of the project has refined the proposed tracking standard, by integrating the new Guarantees of Origin for cogeneration, the implementation of which was due in 2007. This phase also focused on the specific requirements from new Member States. Furthermore, consumer organisations' requirements on tracking systems and the related policies and the views of non-domestic consumer groups are also portrayed in one of the project reports. Finally, the action has developed a strategy for the further development of energy-related certification schemes and their potential integration.
The project was concluded in September 2009. A follow-up project will be starting in Spring 2010. More information will be given here.

The E-TRACK Project - Phase II is now complete, the final report, revised proposals for the E-TRACK standard and all reports are available on this site under the item Documents.
