UNFCCC secretariat, SDM programme Lambert Schneider Team Leader Methodologies Development & Improvement Methodology Development & Improvement Objective and current activities (CDM Joint Workshop, 12-13 March 2011)
Whats this? CDM – A Black Box? PPs DOEs NGOs DNAs CDM Executive Board Panels & working groups Secretariat CDM – transparency & interaction
Methodology Improvement: Transparency & Interaction Practitioner workshops –Transport, baseline standard, building efficiency –Next workshop: 8-10 June (tbc) Enhanced use of public calls for input Direct communication with PPs –Draft revised methodologies sent PPs for feedback Methodology commenting system Liaison with industry / sector associations Questionnaires
Objective for methodology development & improvement Improve existing methodologies –Simplification: default values, neglecting minor emissions, etc –Environmental integrity –Objectivity –Applicability –Consistency –Readability and clarity Top-down development of new methodologies –Under-represented regions –Under-represented project types –Standardized baselines –Tools
Priority sectors EB51 defined four priority sectors: Energy for households Transport Energy efficiency in construction Agriculture
Overview on ongoing methodological work Standardized baselines Baseline standard / framework Development of new tools and methodologies Micro-scale additionality New and innovative approaches for additionality Monitoring standard Excel tables for methodology application
48 large-scale methodologies assessed for improvement ACM0007Conversion from single cycle to combined cylceFinalized AM0055Waste gas recovery in refineriesPublic call AM0031 ACM0016 Mass rapid transportation systemsInitiated AM0030PFC emissions from aluminium productionInitiated AM0023Leaks from natural gas transportationInitiated TOOLMethane emissions from solid waste disposalInitiated TOOLFlaringInitiated AM0025Alternative waste treatmentPrioritized ACM0001Landfill flaringPrioritized AM0077Recovery of gas from oil wellsPrioritized AM0018Steam optimizationPrioritized AM0021Adipic acid productionPrioritized AM0036Fuel switch in biomass heat generationPrioritized AM0048New cogeneration facilitiesPiroritized AM0059Primary aluminium smeltersPrioritized ACM0017Production of biodieselPrioritized
New tools under development Anaerobic digesters Aerobic treatment of solid waste Upstream emissions from fossil fuels Measuring the flow of a GHG Emissions from transportation of freight
Ongoing small-scale and AR methodology work Small-scale methodologies –Water purification using renewable energy/zero energy –Solar water heating –Street lighting –Solar cookers –Water pumping and irrigation efficiency –Building energy efficiency –Building efficiency –Water saving devices AR methodologies –Extended use of tools –Simpler or shorter methodologies
Web interface for commenting on methodologies https://cdm.unfccc.int/methodologies/PAmethodologies/approved
Web interface for commenting on methodologies Pilot phase: launched in December 2010 Classification of comments by secretariat –Editorial mistakes –Further assessment by panel / working groups –REV and CLA cases Consideration of comments –Consideration of EB priorities –Methodology revision / editorial improvement initiated by the secretariat –Later consideration when methodology is revised anyhow 27 Comments received to date, one addressed Make use of this new system!
New procedures for methodology revision Methodology revisions can be initiated by –Project participants –Executive Board –Panels and working groups –Secretariat Technical complex revisions: public comments Draft methodologies sent to PPs for feedback
In Summary Ambitious work programme –Standardized baselines –Top-down methodology development –Methodology improvement –New standards and tools Transparency & Communication Enhanced involvement of stakeholders High quality, user-friendly and integer standards
