CDM Watch respectfully submits the following comment on the Project Design Document (PDD) for Grid connected super-critical technology based power generation, to be developed by Coastal Andhra Power Ltd.,near Krishnapatnam village, Sri Potti Sree Ramulu Nellore district in Andhra Pradesh, India. We highlight the importance of recognizing the integral role of transparency in the CDM validation process, and for taking this comment into consideration.

After careful consideration of the PDD in the given time, we conclude that if approved, this project would lead to the excess issuance of about 1,219,229 Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs) annually beyond any actual emissions reductions. Based on our analysis, this project must not be validated.
