Welcome to the UNEP Risoe
CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database
The CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database contains all CDM/JI projects that have been sent for validation/determination. It also contains the baseline & monitoring methodologies, a list of DOEs and several analyses. Almost all information is from cdm.unfccc.int and ji.unfccc.int.
This monthly newsletter shows a sample of the analysis in the Pipeline. If you want more information, then look into the left column and click on the links to sub-pages or click on the download for the full Pipelines, which contain tables with a line of key information for all CDM and JI projects. You can also download a rather old guidance document to the Pipeline.
Please cite as "UNEP Risoe CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database, December 1st 2013".
Please do not put the spreadsheets on other web-sites, you should only put a link to them on this site.
In November 10 new CDM projects were submitted. These projects were hosted by 6 from India, 1 from Myanmar, 1 from Panama, 1 from South Africa, and 1 from Sri Lanka.
34 CDM projects got their registration action in November, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7400, or 84% of the 8783 CDM projects that are alive! Only 1351 projects are still at validation and 32 have requested registration.
For 1700 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 263 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 267 projects were rejected by the EB, and 61 projects were withdrawn.
November had a low monthly issuance of 9.4 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1409 MCERs. The average issuance success is 90.4%.
EB 75 & 76 approved three new large scale CDM methodologies:
ACM23: "Introduction of an efficiency improvement technology in a boiler"
AM112: "Less carbon intensive power generation through continuous reductive distillation of waste"
AM113: "Distribution of compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) and light-emitting diode (LED) lamps to households"
And approved three new small scale methodologies:
AMS-III.BH.: "Displacement of production of brick and cement by manufacture and installation of gypsum concrete wall panels"
AMS-III.BI.: "Flare gas recovery in gas treating facilities"
AMS-III.BJ.: "Destruction of hazardous waste using plasma technology including energy recovery".
The total voluntary cancellation is now 0.288 MCERs.
In the PDD templates the section B8 showing, which the PDD consultants were, was deleted in May 2012. The UNFCCC has promised to insert this section again. Until that happen we kindly ask more PDD consultants to inform us about which CDM project in the Pipeline they made.
Two new PoAs were submitted in November:
We welcome Burkina Faso with their first CDM project in the pipeline, a CPA under "West African Biodigester Programme of Activities" covering Burkina Faso, Benin, and Cameroon.
We welcome Vanuatu with their first CDM project in the pipeline, a CPA under the PoA"Disseminating Efficient Cookstoves in Vanuatu"
Subtracting the 31 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, 1 one PoA withdrawn, and the 21 resubmitted PoAs we now have 387 PoAs in the Pipeline: 140 at validation, 6 have requested registration, and 241 are registered.
16 new CPAs were submitted for 8 PoAs:
"Efficient Lighting Initiative of Bangladesh (ELIB)" got 8 new CPAs,
"Improved Cooking Stoves Programme of Activities in Africa" in Kenya got 1 new CPA,
"African Improved Cooking Stoves Programme of Activities" in Ghana got 1 new CPA,
"First Solar PoA in India by SENES Consultants" on India got 1 new CPA,
"Standard Bank Low Pressure Solar Water Heater Programme for South Africa" got 2 CPAs,
"Barefoot Power Lighting Programme" got 1 CPA in Uganda,
"Enlightened Solar PoA" in Israel got 1 CPA, and
"Paradigm Sub Saharan Africa Cook Stove Programme" got 1 CPA in Rwanda.
No PoAs had issuance of CERs in November
No new JI project was submitted in November:
Excluding the 26 withdrawn projects and 1 rejected project the JIPipeline now contains 760 projects (553 in track 1 and 207 in track 2).
The total JI issuance is now 829 MERUs, an increase of 1.1 MERUs – from Poland.
These issuances from Poland were not reported to the UNFCCC JI web-site. We found them at the web-site: dokumenty.kobize.pl/projekty_ji/index.htm
The AAU table has been updated with the new information form the Climate Strategies paper by Andreas Turk et al: Green Investment Schemes: The AAU market between 2008 and 2012.
The total sale of hot air is now estimated to be453 Million AAUs

The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can now be access by the public at the webpage: www4.unfccc.int/sites/nama
However, the date of submission is no more visible as it was before. Take care: the reference numbers in the titles of the NAMAs are wrong (they are correct in the NAMA listings).
This information is used as
input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 42
Two new NAMAs were submitted from Mexico:
"Emission Reduction Actions Program (NAMA) in Natural Gas Processing, Transport and Distribution System, through fugitive emission reduction" and
"Cogeneration in the Mexican Oil and Gas sector"
Three new supports for NAMAs were submitted:
"Latin American Investment Facility (LAIF)",
"EU-Africa Infrastructure Trust Fund (ITF)", and
"Neighbourhood Investment Facility (NIF)".
The UNEP Emission Gap Report 2013 has just been published, see http://www.unep.org/emissionsgapreport2013/
UNEP Risoe is one of the teams that delivered emission data to this report. We regularly update our PledgePipeline on the web-site: www.unep.org/climatechange/pledgepipeline
