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
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.

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the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.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.
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
"Wind Power Programme of Activities in Brazil" got 1 new CPA.
No PoAs had issuance of CERs in July.
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
No JI projects had issuance in July.
The total sale of hot air is estimated to be 453 Million AAUs
