Phase 2: Electricity Generation  Methane powered electricity generators can run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (excluding maintenance downtime)  Waste-to-energy units are always located near densely populated areas and do not require costly infrastructure to deliver electricity directly to consumers  Landfill gas generation units consist of fairly common technology (gas engines), easily accessible from emerging countries, so that sourcing, operation and maintenance don’t require any specialized engineering  Though there are only limited quantities of landfill gas – as opposed to infinite potential reserves of sunlight or wind – the resource remains widely untapped and generation capacity from solid waste worldwide is far from ever reaching the level of landfill gas reserves turnover…

16 16 Glossary of terms

17 17 Glossary Appendix  AAU: Assigned Amount Unit. Allowances for carbon emissions allocated to developed countries up to their target level under the Kyoto Protocol. These allowances are tradable under Kyoto's international emission trading mechanisms in place from 2008 to 2012. Each AAU equates to one tonne of CO2e.  Annex I, Annex B: The signatory nations to the Kyoto Protocol that are subject to caps on their emissions of greenhouse gases and committed to reduction targets – countries with developed economies. Annex I refers to the 36 countries identified for reduction in the UNFCCC while the Annex B is an adjusted list of 39 countries identified under the more recent Kyoto Protocol. Annex B countries have their reduction targets formally stated.  CDM: Clean Development Mechanism. A Kyoto Protocol initiative under which projects set up in developing countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generate tradable credits called CERs, the first step towards a global carbon market. These credits can be used by industrialized nations to offset carbon emissions at home and meet their Kyoto reduction targets. The projects include renewable energy generation, reforestation and clean fuels switching.  CER: Certified Emission Reduction. A credit generated under Kyoto’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) for the reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases equal to one tonne of CO 2 - equivalent. They are designed to be used by industrialized countries to count toward their Kyoto targets but can also be used by EU companies and governments as offsets against their emissions under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme.  Copenhagen Accord: The four-nation agreement struck by the US, China, India and South Africa at the 2009 Copenhagen climate conference and noted by the UN climate convention Council of the Parties. A limited political deal that the signatories hope will form the basis of a new global climate agreement from 2013.  ERPA: Emissions Reduction Purchase Agreement. Contracts governing the sale of CER carbon credits from UN CDM and JI projects. Heavily used for forward sales of CERs not yet issued, in projects under development, as a means of project financing. The price of such primary CERs is discounted in ERPAs to reflect the risks of non-delivery.  ERU: Emission Reduction Unit. Tradable credits generated from activities to reduce greenhouse emissions in in industrialized countries, particularly those of the former Soviet-bloc, under the Kyoto Protocol’s Joint Implementation (JI) mechanism.  EU ETS: EU Emission Trading Scheme. In 2005, the European Union introduced a market in carbon dioxide emissions for major emitting industries. The scheme is based on the allocation of carbon emission allowances, called EU Allowances (EUAs), to specific industrial sectors through national allocation plans (NAPs) that cap the total level of emissions at levels which reduce over time. The EU ETS applies to 7,300 companies and 11,500 installations in sectors with high carbon dioxide emissions across the 27 nations of the EU. These include: energy utilities, oil refineries, iron and steel producers, the pulp and paper industry as well as producers of cement, glass, lime, brick and ceramics. Aviation and aluminium are to be included in future years. The scheme is regulated by the European Commission (EC).  EUA: European Union Allowances. Tradable emission credits from the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. Each allowance carries the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide.  GHG: Green Houses Gas. The three most important greenhouse gases are: carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), the biggest contributor to global warming; methane (CH 4 ), eg. from decomposing landfill and flatulent cattle; nitrous oxide (N 2 0), eg. from vehicle exhaust fumes. There are also three other industrial gases that contribute to global warming: hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), used for refrigeration; perfluorocarbons (PFCs), produced in the making of semi-conductors; sulphur hexafluoride (SF 6 ), a by-product of aluminium manufacturing and the electronics industry.

18 18 Glossary Appendix  JI: Joint Implementation. A Kyoto Protocol mechanism which allows developed countries, particularly those in transition to a market economy, to host carbon- reducing projects funded by another developed country. The arrangement sees the credits generated, called ERUs, go to the investor country while the emission allowances (AAUs) of the host country are reduced by the same amount.  Kyoto Protocol: This agreement, which came into force in 2005, commits developed nations collectively to cut their greenhouse gas emissions to 5.2 per cent of 1990 levels by 2012. By 2007, 175 countries had ratified the agreement, including most of the world's developed nations. The Kyoto Protocol was struck in 1997in Kyoto, Japan, when member nations of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) agreed that developed countries must reduce their emissions of six greenhouse gases to meet the overall target, with specific targets varying from country to country. The Protocol came into force in February 2005 and includes 35 developed countries that account for 61.6 per cent of total world carbon dioxide emissions.  Leachate: Liquid (usually from rainwater) that percolates through waste material in a landfill. As the water moves through the waste, it picks up contaminants from the waste material, and it must be collected and properly disposed of, to avoid transferring the contaminants to groundwater.  LoA: Letter of Approval. With the issuance of a Letter of Approval the Host Country formally approves the project for the purposes of Article 6 or 12 of the Kyoto Protocol, and confirms that the project assists the Host Country in achieving sustainable development. A Letter of Approval is a requirement for all JI and CDM activities under the Kyoto Protocol and is therefore a prerequisite for the signing of an ERPA with the CFU Trustee.  Offsets: Carbon offsets, offset credits. Credits issued in return for a reduction of atmospheric carbon emissions through projects such as the provision of renewable energy to replace fossil fuel energy, or reforesting cleared land to create a carbon sink. By paying for such emission reducing activities, individuals and organisations can use the resulting credits to offset their own emissions, either voluntarily or under the rules of most emissions trading schemes. One offset credit equates to an emission reduction of one tonne of CO2. See also CER.  PDD: Project Design Document. The official application drawn up by an entity applying for project approval under the UN Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) or a verification standard in the voluntary carbon market. PDDs must be validated by an independent third party, then approved and registered by the CDM Executive Board or voluntary standard provider before a project qualifies as a CER or VER carbon credit earner.  RGGI: Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. A ten-state regional US emissions cap-and-trade scheme covering power plants from 2009. Scheduled to run until the end of 2018 unless superseded by a federal scheme, current members are Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.  tCO 2 e, MtCO 2 e: Tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent, and millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. This is the metric measurement unit for greenhouse emissions. The global warming impact of all greenhouse gases is measured in terms of equivalency to the impact of carbon dioxide (CO2). For example, one million tonnes of emitted methane, a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, is measured as 21 million tonnes of CO2-equivalent, or 21 MtCO2e.  UNFCCC: United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Also referred to informally as the UN climate change convention. It is the international agreement for action on climate change and was drawn up in 1992. A framework was agreed for action aimed at stabilising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases. The UNFCCC entered into force on March 1994 and currently has 192 signatory parties.
