CDM news:

In November 6 new CDM project was submitted, 1from India and 1 from Lao PDR.

4 CDM project got their registration action in November, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7747, or 92% of the 8459 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 708 projects are still at validation and 4 have requested registration.

For 2222 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 276 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 275 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.

The total issuance is now 1753 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 87.8%. 3001 registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 20.5 MCERs compared to last month.

Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 15.4 MCERs. In South Korea CERs can be converted into Korean Carbon Units if they are from CDM projects in South Korea and cancelled voluntarily. This already happened for 10.2 MCERs.

Two new methodologies were approved at EB92:

AM117: Introduction of a new district cooling system, and

AM118: Introduction of low resistivity power transmission line.

PoA news:

In table 2 in the "Analysis" for all the sub-type we have added 2 new columns showing: 1) The issuance of kCERs for all the CDM projects + PoAs in each sub-type; and 2) The total number of CDM project + CPAs in each sub-type.

One new PoAs was submitted in November: "Tandavanala TsinjoHarena Improved cookstoves in Madagascar".

Subtracting the 69 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 5 PoAs withdrawn, and the 28 resubmitted PoAs we now have 385 PoAs in the Pipeline: 84 at validation, 2 have requested registration, and 299 are registered.

8 new CPAs were submitted in November:

"Up Energy Improved Cookstove Programme, Uganda" got 4 CPAs, and

"Hydro Alliance Programme of Activities" in Guatemala got 1 CPA.

In total 2110 CPAs exist hosted by 76 countries.

The total issuance from the 37 PoAs with issuance is now 6.6 MCERs.

We have added a large number of new columns in the PoAPipeline: Technology measure, Level for Environment analysis and for Stakeholder meetings, 6 SD indicators for each PoA, Technology transfer type, Barrier analysis type and finally time series for the GHG reductions.
