Comments on Validation of the Grid connected super-critical technology based power generation in Tirora, India, Version 01

CDM Watch respectfully submits the following comment on the Project Design Document (PDD) for Grid connected super-critical technology based power generation in Tirora, 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 1,108,404 Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs) annually beyond any actual emissions reductions and therefore must not be validated for a number of significant concerns.
