CDM news:

In August 1 new CDM project was submitted from India.

1 CDM project got its registration action in August, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7732, or 91% of the 8464 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 722 projects are still at validation and 10 have requested registration.

For 2210 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 276 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 273 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.

August had a monthly issuance of 7.0 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1711 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 88.3%. 2946 Registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 7 compared to last month.

Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 13.5 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 9.1 MCERs.

In the "Analysis" and "Time" sheets we have changed the figures and tables from showing the expected issuance of CERs until 2012 according to the PDDs to the expected issuance in the second crediting period (2013-2020).

We have updated the Pipelines to include all projects that have used automatic additionality.
