Lessons learned from PCF so far:

Cost of CDM-like procedures:

  • Approximate procedural cost: $200-400K (half up front, half after commissioning)
  • Size of ER purchase from project: $2-3 million
  • Total size of project: $10-15 million (power projects ~5-10MW)

Small projects involving technologies such as PV, small wind, biomass, micro-hydro often

  • have higher unit costs due to small size
  • displace lower carbon intensity end-uses
  • operate in riskier environments (e.g. remote areas)

BUT they represent majority of CDM opportunites for small developing countries incl small islands.   To be competitive in CDM such projects need

  • aggregation to reduce transaction costs
  • streamlined/ simplified CDM procedures
