CDM projects by type

This page shows have the distribution is of the project among the project types e.g. energy efficiency in industry or renewables.

CDM projects types
CDM projects in sector
4 largest CDM categories
Breakdown into sub-types
Wind CDM projects
Solar CDM projects
CDM projects grouped in types
In the table above all the CDM projects are grouped in types that are sorted according to descending frequency in the Pipeline. The accumulated 2025 CERs is the total GHG reduction in the projects until the end of 2025.

EE - industry has been split into EE - own generation, where electricity is produced from waste gas or wasted energy, and EE - industry, which now only covers end-use savings.


Number (%) of CDM projects in each category of types
The top table and graphs above and below show that the fraction of renewable energy projects always has oscillated around 60% of all CDM projects.

The HFC, PFC and N2O projects only account for 2.0% of the projects but represent 29% of the CERs by 2012.


Percentage share of the total number of projects of in the CDM categories
The fraction of energy efficiency projects have increased (mostly in EE own generation and in EE industry) and the fraction of CH4 projects have decreased. Please compare with the distribution of expected CERs among project types on the front page. A definition of the “types” used in the Pipeline can be found in table 12 in the “Analysis” sheet in the full Pipeline.


Project types breakdown into the sub-types (please see the full table in the spreadsheet)
This table gives for all types a breakdown into the sub-types they consist of plus an overview of how far these projects are in the project cycle. The MW to be installed in the projects are also shown. Now the issuance success is also calculated for each sub-type.


These two tables show the MW electric capacity expected to be installed in the wind and solar project types.

The wind and the solar tables are sorted according to which countries host most projects.
