What is TEQs?

Tradable Energy Quotas is

an electronic system for capping (carbon-rated) energy use

,

at national level

,

for all energy users.


What is teqs

To purchase any fuel or energy, TEQs units must be surrendered alongside cash payment.

All individual citizens receive an unconditional free Entitlement of TEQs units.

Other energy users obtain their units through the weekly Tender (auction).

Citizens who use less than their Entitlement may sell them and benefit from their energy-thrift.

Those who want or need more may buy them from those who are selling.

The carbon budget

THE CARBON BUDGET

1. Establishes the total quantity of TEQs units (rations) that may be issued

2. Guarantee = long-term confidence

The issue of units

THE ISSUE OF UNITS

  • By equal Entitlement to all adults (40%)

  • By Tender to all other users (60%)

The Tender is a weekly auction at which organisations (industry, government etc.) purchase the TEQs units they need


The rating system

THE RATING SYSTEM

Carbon units:

(all fuel rated by carbon content)

1 unit = 1kg CO2 (or equivalent gwp)

OR

Fuel units:

1 unit = 1 litre oil

1 unit = 1 metre3 gas

1 unit = 1 kWh electricity (etc)

(So renewables require almost no TEQs units)

(No need for exhaust pipe measurements

or carbon labelling)

The market for units

THE MARKET FOR UNITS

Everyone has access to the same market.

The national market price is set by the Tender.

Buying and selling as simple as Oyster or mobile phone credit

THE SURRENDER OF UNITS

A hands-free scheme

  • Utility bills: direct debit (8 times a yr)

  • Petrol: by card (20 times a yr)

  • The cash option

    No need to measure emissions
