Welcome to the UNEP DTU
CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database

This is because we have left the peninsular Risoe and moved into the UN-City in Copenhagen, and because we are still part of the Danish Technical University DTU.

The CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database of the CDM & JI projects has been updated at and the NAMAPipeline on

CDM news:

In October 6 new CDM projects were submitted. Three of these projects were hosted by India, 1 from Pakistan, 1 from Nigeria, and 1 from Brazil. In addition one CDM project from India was resubmitted.

10 CDM projects got their registration action in October, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7572, or 87% of the 8676 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 1122 projects are still at validation and 10 have requested registration.

For 1888 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 267 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 270 projects were rejected by the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.

October had a monthly issuance of 13.2 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1504 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 89.1%.

According to the "Annual compilation and accounting report for Annex B Parties under the Kyoto Protocol for 2013" FCCC/KP/CMP/2013/6 the total Voluntary Cancellation until the end of 2012 was 4.9 MCERS, and it could easily be the double now. Since the Voluntary Cancelations in the central registry is now 1.4 MCERs, the Voluntary cancelation in the national registries must be around 10 MCERs. However, it is secret how much was canceled for which projects in the national registries.

The SD-Tool has now been used for 15 CDM projects (4 of these are PoAs).

We have added a new sheet called "TOC_Analysis" containing a Table Of Content for all the many tables and charts in the Analysis sheet. Click on the title of the table or chart you want to see and the macro will bring you there.

In the "Analysis" sheet called "Host country use". In this column you can now see the 160 Chinese CDM projects that have applied to be registered in the domestic pilot compliance market (they are marked with the text "CCER val."). In addition 32 CDM projects have got CCERs verified (they are marked with the text "CCER ver."). In the 4 columns in the far right-hand side of the "CDM_Project" sheet we show the amount of verified CCERs and the monitored period for these projects. In total 403 projects have been submitted to the Chinese domestic pilot compliance market until now.

PoA news:

Two new PoAs were submitted in October:

"Fossil Natural Gas Substitution by Renewable Natural Gas Produced from Anaerobic Digestion of Vinasse Programme of Activity in Brazil" and

"Gigawatt Global Programme of Activities" in Rwanda.

Subtracting the 43 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 3 PoAs withdrawn, and the 22 resubmitted PoAs we now have 394 PoAs in the Pipeline: 121 at validation, 5 have requested registration, and 269 are registered.

1 new CPAs were submitted in October for:

"Promotion of renewable energy generation in India- Programme of Activities".

In total 1836 CPAs exist hosted by 65 countries.

Four PoAs had issuance of CERs in October.

"Sichuan Rural Poor-Household Biogas Development Programme" got 389.006 kCERs for the first of 53 CPAs.

"Improved Cook Stoves for East Africa (ICSEA)" got 4.052 kCERs for 1 CPA in Uganda,

"SGCC In-advance Distribution Transformer Replacement CDM Programme" got 74.894 kCERs for 4 CPAs in China, and

"Caixa Econômica Federal Solid Waste Management and Carbon Finance Project" got 123.982 kCERs for 1 CPA in Brazil.

The total issuance from the 10 PoAs with issuance is now 1.46 MCERs.

This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 57

NAMAs (including 1 NAMA that was withdrawn) and 12 support programmes.

We had added table in the "Analysis" sheet showing Support offered. The total support offered is now 55 MUS$, and the requested financial support is 5159 MUS$.
