  1. 1. Small Scale Bundling & ProgrammaticCDM Kuala Lumpur, 24th June 2009
  2. 2. EVI - Profile Among the largest Climate Change More than 135 CDM projects under way Mitigation advisory firms in India & PAN across a breadth of industry and projectAsia, working across all CDM sectors such types, with over 27 registered. Managing as renewable energy, energy efficiency, a portfolio of 90+ million CERs and 50+ waste management, etc million VERs One of the first Indian firms to offer Bring together an innovative combination services of Carbon Footprinting and of technology, financing and supplier Carbon Neutrality. Various projects network. Extensive expertise in the completed on the same. Climate Change Mitigation sectorSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  3. 3. EVI - Credentials First Climate Change Mitigation firm to offer Carbon Neutrality services in India to organizations and events. Various Projects completed for Pharma, IT, Steel etc. Facilitated most of the carbon neutral events organized by Indian organizations till date Facilitated the first Municipal Solid Waste (MSW-RDF) project CDM registration in India Facilitated the first Wind & Largest Hydro project CDM registration in India We are currently working on a few of the most complex areas such as Bus Rapid Transportation System, Reforestation, Programmatic CDM, Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) etc Sustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  4. 4. Contents Defining Small Scale Projects Bundling of small scale activities De-bundling issues Programmatic CDM – Concept  Highlights  What if  Fee implicationsSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  5. 5. Defining Small Scale ProjectsThree benchmarks  Type I (Renewable Energy)  Power Generation Capacity up to 15 MW  Thermal Energy Generation up to 45 MWh – thermal  Type II (Energy Efficiency)  Energy Efficiency - 60 MW e or 180 MW thermal saving  Type III (Others)  Other projects with emission reductions up to 60 kt CO2eSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  6. 6. Bundling  Many small scale activities can be bundled within a single project within the limit of small scale as defined for the three categories  Benefits  Easy CER selling and better prices  Reduced the transaction cost of CDM cycle (advisory, validation, verification)  Points to consider  Coordination is difficult among the Project Participants  Issues of delayed execution  Invoicing/ payments difficulties  Different timelines of activitiesSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  7. 7. De-bundling De-bundling is defined as the fragmentation of a large-scale project activity into smaller parts. Need to check  A proposed small-scale project activity shall be deemed to be a de-bundled component of a large-scale project activity if there is a registered small-scale CDM project activity or a request for registration by another small-scale project activity:  By the same project participants;  In the same project category and technology/measure; and  Registered within the previous 2 years; and  Whose project boundary is within 1 km of the project boundary of the proposed small-scale activity at the closest point.Sustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  8. 8. Programmatic CDM (pCDM) Local/regional/national policy or standard cannot be considered as a clean development mechanism project activity, but that project activities under a programe of activities can be registered as a single clean development mechanism project activity Key terms  PoA – Programme of Activities  CPA – CDM Programme Activity PoA CPA Sustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  9. 9. Programmatic CDM (pCDM)Highlights Program life for 28 years (60 years for Aforestation program) Each CPA crediting period either 10 or 21 years but limited to remaining life of PoA CPA is not part of any other applied/ approved CDM/ VER project CER registered/ issued in the name of managing entity and distributed among the participants according to contract Is not necessarily limited to a single country, can be trans- boundary in nature among non-annex 1 countries Methodology/ technology measure type used is same for all CPAsSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  10. 10. Programmatic CDM (pCDM)Highlights Change in methodology applies to new CPAs only Key Steps in doing a PoA  Identify managing entity  Define boundary  Describe program of activities  Define eligibility criteria  Define additionality criteria  Monitoring – By sampling or accessing data of each CPA  EIA – PoA /CPA levelSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  11. 11. Programmatic CDM (pCDM)Highlights Key Documents  CDM-PoA DD (Design Document)  CDM-CPA-DD (generic)  CDM-CPA-DD (specific) Inclusion of new CPA  CPA submitted to DOE  Validated by DOE and uploaded every month  Uploaded CPA is part of PoA now  Informed to DOE, DNA and managing entitySustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  12. 12. Programmatic CDM (pCDM)What if CPA is rejected by EB  CPA can not be part of any CDM project in any form  DOE shall deposit a CER amount with EB equivalent to issued CERs in the name of PoA associated with rejected CPA within 30 days  Review by another DOE in case of CPA rejection Methodology is under revision/ withdrawn  No CPA shall be includedSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  13. 13. Programmatic CDM (pCDM)FEE implications Registration fee  Based on expected annual CERs at the time of PoA registration  Paid by Managing entity  New CPA inclusions don’t attract registration feeSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  14. 14. Issues When can EB reject a CPA?  No clear definition of stage  EB can reject at Verification, or any time after CPA is included  What would be the effect on the entire cycle?  DOE  Buyer  Managing Entity Monitoring  How to ensure accuracy and sanctity of Sample vis-à-vis entire participant base? DOEs would be hesitant to take up PoAs  High liabilities, no crosscheck mechanism with EB for any CPA  Being extra cautious, time taken and cost for each CPA would increase  Entire purpose of PoA would be defeatedSustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
  15. 15. Opportunities Programmatic CDM is ideal for distributed activities  Solar lanterns  Small MSW projects  Compact Fluorescent Lamp  Biogas projects (community based) These projects are usually bypassed for CDM due to high relative cost/benefit These can be implemented via PoAs and CDM benefits can be obtained for much more remote sections of societySustainable Solutions for the Environment Confidential
