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

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 of the CDM & JI projects has been updated at and the NAMAPipeline on

CDM news:

In September 9 new CDM projects were submitted. Four of these projects were hosted by India, 3 from Lao PDR, 1 from Mozambique, and 1 from United Arab Emirates. In addition 2 projects from India and 2 from Lao PDR were resubmitted. The all used the new version 5.0 of the CDM PDD were the section B8 on the PDD consultant are added.

8 CDM projects got their registration action in September, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7562, or 87% of the 8690 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 1122 projects are still at validation and 10 have requested registration.

For 1888 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 267 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 270 projects were rejected by the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.

September had a monthly issuance of 10.9 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1491 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 89.5%.

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 1.1 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 table 7 at the bottom of the "Analysis2" sheet shoving the number of CDM projects using the SD-tool in each host country for each CDM type. The SD-Tool has now been used for 14 CDM projects (4 of these are PoAs).

We have added a new sheet called "TOC_Analysis" containing a Table Of Content for all the many tables and charts in the Analysis sheet. Click on the title of the table or chart you want to see and the macro will bring you there.

We have added a new column in the "Analysis" sheet called "Host country use". In this column you can now see the 144 Chinese CDM projects that have applied to be registered in the domestic pilot compliance market (they are marked with the text "CCER val."). In addition 32 CDM projects have got CCERs verified (they are marked with the text "CCER ver."). In the 4 columns in the far right-hand side of the "CDM_Project" sheet we show the amount of verified CCERs and the monitored period for these projects. In total 386 projects have been submitted to the Chinese domestic pilot compliance market until now.

PoA news:

Two new PoAs were submitted in September:

"Dissemination of improved cook stoves and generation of charcoal" in India and

"UAE Small Scale Solar Programme of Activities" in the first PoA hosted by the United Arab Emirates.

Subtracting the 42 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 3 PoAs withdrawn, and the 22 resubmitted PoAs we now have 390 PoAs in the Pipeline: 123 at validation, 5 have requested registration, and 262 are registered.

61 new CPAs were submitted in September for 4 PoAs (This is the highest number of new CPAs since March 2011):

"The National CFL Project, Pakistan" got 52 new CPA,

"DelAgua Public Health Program in Eastern Africa" in Rwanda got 6 new CPA,

"African Improved Cooking Stoves Programme of Activities" in Nigeria got 2 new CPAs, and

"Promotion of renewable energy generation in India- Programme of Activities" got 1 new CPA.

We have added a new column in table 2 and 5 in the "PoAanalysis" sheet. It shows how many CPAs have been submitted by each host country, and how many CPAs have used each sub-type. In total 1806 CPAs exist hosted by 64 countries.

One PoAs had two issuances of CERs in September.

"SASSA Low Pressure Solar Water Heater Programme" got 14.227 kCERs for the first of its CPAs and 50.194 kCERs for its first 2 CPAs. The total issuance from the 8 PoAs with issuance is now 0.87 MCERs.

JI news:

No new JI projects were submitted in September.

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

No JI projects had issuance in September.

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

NAMApipeline news: see

The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can be accessed by the public at the webpage:

A new NAMAs were submitted in September:

"Santiago Transport Green Zone (STGZ)" from Chile, and

This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 54

NAMAs (including 1 NAMA that was withdrawn) and 10 support programmes.

We had added a new column in table 1 in the "Analysis" sheet showing the annual GHG reduction in 2020 in reported in the NAMAs. The total GHG reduction reported from all the NAMA are now 59 MtCO2e. Another column in the same table shows that the total request for financial assistance is 5051 MUS$.
