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

UNEP Risoe has changed name to UNEP DTU. 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 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 and

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 do not put the spreadsheets on other web-sites, you should only put a link to them on this site.

CDM news:

In July 7 new CDM projects were submitted. These projects were hosted by 3 from India, 2 from Bhutan,1 from Sri Lank, and 1 from Uganda. In addition 2 projects from Panama were resubmitted.

14 CDM projects got their registration action in July, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7530, or 87% of the 8705 CDM projects that are alive. Only 1168 projects are still at validation and 7 have requested registration.

For 1846 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 266 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 269 projects were rejected by the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.

July had a monthly issuance of 8.9 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1466 MCERs. The average issuance success is 89.6%.

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 0.776 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.

We have added a new column in the "CDM_Project sheet" called "expected accumulated 2030 ktCO2e" reduction, showing the sum of the expected issuance from the crediting start date to the end of 2030.

In the PDD templates the section B8 showing, which the PDD consultants were, was deleted in March 2012. The UNFCCC has now said that this section will be reinserted in March 2014 or so.

We have added a new column in the "Analysis" sheet called "Host country use". In this column you can now see the 103 Chinese CDM projects that have applied to be registered in the domestic pilot compliance market (they are marked with the text "CCER val.". In total 200 projects have been submitted to the Chinese domestic pilot compliance market until now. Two of these projects are registered in the Chinese system.

PoA news:

No new PoAs were submitted in July.

Subtracting the 37 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 3 PoAs withdrawn, and the 23 resubmitted PoAs we now have 391 PoAs in the Pipeline: 131 at validation, 6 have requested registration, and 254 are registered.

3 new CPAs were submitted in July for 3 PoAs:
"Vietnam Renewable Energy Development Program (REDP)" got 1 new CPA,
"Thailand energy efficiency improvement for street lightings" got 1 new CPA,
"Wind Power Programme of Activities in Brazil" got 1 new CPA.

No PoAs had issuance of CERs in July.

JI news:

No new JI projects were submitted in July.

Excluding the 26 withdrawn projects and 1 rejected project the JIPipeline now contains 761 projects (555 in track 1 and 206 in track 2).

No JI projects had issuance in July.

The total sale of hot air is estimated to be 453 Million AAUs

This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 51
NAMAs (including 1 NAMA that was withdrawn).
