8 CERT Strategic Plan Vision Where are we going ? Mission How will we get there? What is our focus? Strategic Objectives What are the measurable, medium-term goals?

9 © OECD/IEA 2011 To be considered Messages from CERT/WP Brainstorming Recent Developments Increased importance of energy technologies as solutions for a sustainable future Awareness that additional RDD&D is needed Energy technology roadmaps as a recognized tool for agreeing on goals and the steps to achieve them Increased importance of international cooperation and the mandate for the low-carbon energy technology platform

10 © OECD/IEA 2011 Vision (draft) The CERT and its wider energy technology network will continue to serve as the worlds leading provider of information and collaborative resources for accelerating the research, development, demonstration, and deployment of energy technologies. This is based on sharing of best-practice models and enhanced international co-operation to the benefit of all countries.

11 © OECD/IEA 2011 Strategic Objectives (draft) Enhance and expand analysis Provide strategic policy guidance Engage with major economies and organisations Strengthen the energy technology network Encourage investments in clean energy technologies

12 © OECD/IEA 2011 CERT Action Plan What are the targeted, short-term activities we need in order to reach our strategic objectives? 2012-2014 2014-2016

13 © OECD/IEA 2011 Led by CERT Strategy Group Chairs/VC from CERT, Working Parties, Experts Groups and Ad-Hoc Groups and volunteers and IEA Secretariat Final Strategy and Action Plan To be approved by the CERT June-Nov. 2011 Presented to the Governing Board Dec. 2011

14 © OECD/IEA 2011 CERT Chairs and Vice Chairs approved Nov. 2010 Terms of Reference Election Procedures Working Parties invited to adopt same or similar CERT-Network Liaison Officers Terms of Reference approved Feb. 2011 CERT-WPFF: Bert Stuij (Netherlands) CERT-REWP: Willem van der Heul (Netherlands) CERT-FPCC: Alejandro Zurita (European Commission) CERT-EGRD: Ludwig Vandermaelen (Belgium) CERT-EGSE: tbd CERT-POGT: tbd Developments in Governance

15 © OECD/IEA 2011 Requests for Extension – New Guidelines Criteria table New criteria under management, communication and outreach Review Process Transparent steps of who does what and when Guidelines for Supporting Documents End-of-term report and strategy plan to follow outline of criteria table Schedule for Implementation IAs know five years in advance exactly the month of the WP meeting at which the request for extension will be reviewed WPs know at which meeting they will have to review

16 © OECD/IEA 2011 Sponsors At its meeting held 4-5 November 2009, the CERT: Agreed that the definition of Sponsor in Article 3.3 of the Framework on International Energy Technology Co- operation is intended to include government owned and/or controlled entities including, for the avoidance of doubt, companies which are 100 per cent owned by government. Instructed the Secretariat to recommend a mechanism by which the CERT can be advised, prior to giving its approval as a Sponsor to a government owned and/or controlled entity, that the government of the proposed Sponsor has no objection to it being a Sponsor rather than a Contracting Party designated by that government.

17 © OECD/IEA 2011 2. Position and Influence Cross-Cutting and Thematic Discussions Effectiveness of the Network

18 © OECD/IEA 2011 Cross-Cutting / Thematic Discussions CERT brainstorming and meeting of Chairs and Vice-Chairs: Reduce administration during CERT meetings in favour of thematic, cross-cutting and strategic discussions Strengthen network links Provide opportunity for Working Parties, Expert Groups and Implementing Agreements to: Be actively involved in shaping the agendas Provide technical expertise for the discussions

19 © OECD/IEA 2011 Leverage IEAs convening power Position CERT as central to informing on timely topics Rare earth minerals Future of gas Energy storage Energy systems Raise awareness of the relevance of the network among IEA Member countries

20 © OECD/IEA 2011 Topics and Discussions CERT Brainstorming March 2010 (CERT) Smart grids June 2010 (CERT) Communication I Sep 2010 (workshop) Technology Platform May and October 2010 Communication II April 2011 (workshop) Energy storage February 2011 (workshop) Rare earth materialsFebruary 2011 (CERT) Future of GasJune 2011 (CERT) Energy Systems November 2011 (CERT)

21 © OECD/IEA 2011 Other suggested topics CERT-IA workshop Role of industry in basic science and demonstration Outreach and collaboration with the private sector Cost of Renewable Technologies Intellectual property rights Roadmap tracking and implementation Training and education next-generation researchers Smart communities, cities, regions Others suggestions may be suggested to: Working party chair or delegate CERT-Network Liaison Officer IEA Desk officer

22 © OECD/IEA 2011 6,000 scientists, experts, researchers, consultants 500 universities, labs, government offices, companies, consultants Linking IEA Member countries with non-Members Linking public and private Effectiveness of the Network

23 © OECD/IEA 2011 Internal Analysis of the Network Highlighted at CERT/WP/EG chairs meeting IAs - time-proven, demand driven, flexible mechanism 37 years old What is included? What isnt? What works? What doesnt? What else is needed? Inventory and map of all technologies Highlight gaps, overlaps, potentials, priorities

24 © OECD/IEA 2011 Analyse strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) Identify themes for cross-cutting discussions Facilitate participation Interested stakeholders Potential partners

25 © OECD/IEA 2011 SWOT? Tool/framework for analysis

26 © OECD/IEA 2011 Filling the information gap

27 © OECD/IEA 2011 Questionnaire Process Pre-filled by IEA Secretariat Validated and completed by IAs Status Sent to target group of IAs and received Preliminary results presented to CERT Feb 2011 To be sent to remaining IAs June-Sep 2011 Final results presented to CERT Nov 2011

28 © OECD/IEA 2011 Preliminary Findings IAs are substantially different in scope, management, organisation and size IAs fall into two basic categories professional and academic The technology focus, remaining barriers and visibility of long-standing IAs evolves as the technology and policy frameworks progress They share a common motivation and engine - information sharing

29 © OECD/IEA 2011 Risks most often cited Environmental Safety Unproven performance Barriers to deployment Lack of knowledge Technical limitations Cost Lack of regulation
