Natural Gas Projects should be rejected (Newsletter #11)

Another large natural gas power project[1] in China (capacity: 1170MW) has applied for eligibility as a CDM project. However, it is currently under review because its additionality and baseline claims are highly questionable: The project seems to have been planned well before the project developers decided to turn it into a CDM project. Furthermore the variables used for the investment analysis seem to have been chosen in such a way as to make the project look additional and do not seem to be based on the relevant figures for the region and the timeframe applicable to this project.

CDM Watch recommends rejecting this non-additional project.
