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, March 1st 2014".
Please do not put the spreadsheets on other web-sites, you should only put a link to them on this site.
In February 12 new CDM projects were submitted. These projects were hosted by 9 from India, 1 from Swaziland, 1 from Lao PDR, and 1 from Bangladesh. In addition 1 project from South Africa was resubmitted.
24 CDM projects got their registration action in February, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7450, or 85% of the 8753 CDM projects that are alive. Only 1274 projects are still at validation and 29 have requested registration.
For 1766 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 264 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 268 projects were rejected by the EB, and 61 projects were withdrawn.
February had a rather low monthly issuance of 5.7 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1433 MCERs. The average issuance success is 90.3%.
Some new voluntary cancellations were added, so the total is now 0.618 MCERs.
EB77 approved the new large-scale methodology ACM24: "Natural gas substitution by biogenic methane produced from the anaerobic digestion of organic waste"
We have inserted a new sheet in the CDMPipeline beside the sheet "Methods". The name of the new sheet is "SB". The content is for all the submitted Standardised Baselines: Proposed Methodology no., Approved Methodology no., Title, Host country, Developer, Submission date, Entry into force date, and Days to approval.
We have now updated the "StatesAndProvinces" notebook so that it now includes a sheet for all CDM host countries. You can also for the new ones see how many of which type of projects there are in each region in the country.
Since many buyers have withdrawn, we have moved the withdrawn buyers from the "Buyer" column to a new column next to the "Buyer" column with the name "Withdrawn Buyers". We have now finished this work, and have added a new column in the "Buyer" sheet, where you for each buyer can see how many projects they have withdrawn from. In total buyers have withdrawn from 6.7% of their total portfolio.
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.
Four new PoAs were submitted in February:
"Biomass Energy Conservation Programme" in Malawi, and
Subtracting the 33 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 2 PoAs withdrawn, and the 23 resubmitted PoAs we now have 391 PoAs in the Pipeline: 141 at validation, 3 have requested registration, and 247 are registered.
2 new CPAs were submitted for 2 PoAs:
"Improved Cook Stoves programme for Rwanda" got 1 new CPAs, and
"National Solar Power Development Programme, India" got 1 new CPA.
1 PoAs had issuance of CERs in February: The "Improved Cooking Stoves for Nigeria Programme of Activities" got issuance of 2376 CERs
No new JI projects were submitted in February.
Excluding the 26 withdrawn projects and 1 rejected project the JIPipeline now contains 761 projects (555 in track 1 and 206 in track 2).
A no tillage project from Ukraine issued 5.8 MERUs, so the total JI issuance is now 835 MERUs.
The total sale of hot air is estimated to be 453 Million AAUs

The date of submission have now been reintroduced for the newest NAMAs.
This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 43
One new NAMAs were submitted in February 2014:
"NAMA for accelerated geothermal electricity development in Kenya"
The UNEP Emission Gap Report 2013 was 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
