Unsolicited Letter: Review of the Additionality of CDM Coal Power Project 4807, China

14 Sep 2011

PDF (English)

We have serious concerns about this project, and believe that it is so plainly non-additional under CDM rules that its registration would seriously undermine the credibility of the CDM process. Quite simply, this project will use supercritical technology, regardless of whether the CDM provides support. If registered, this Project could receive 9,364,517 CERs that do not represent additional emissions reductions, and could give the project participant an undeserved windfall on  the order of € 93 million (based on current CER prices).
