India CDM pipeline November report

Two N2O abatement projects from Rashtriya Chemicals Fertilizers accounted for 1.35 million CER generation potential: being amongst the larger projects getting registered. Unexpectedly, a leading indicator for future projects is strong in November.

Our pipeline review and analysis follows the format established in the quarterly report. For some background you can get more details by clicking here.

Leading indicator 1: Projects requesting prior consideration in India
We have had to revise our October figures of projects submitted for prior consideration significantly upwards. It appears that the UNFCCC system has had lags towards the end of the month. Our October numbers for projects submitted for prior consideration have moved up from 27 to 62 for India; and the global number has moved up from 80 to 218. The November provisional numbers are also high at 47 for India and 137 for global projects. It would appear that one of two things is happening: (a) developing countries are sending a signal on the ongoing need for CDM; and/or (b) organizations are looking to capture the opportunity remaining over the next 24 months that the Kyoto protocol exists. (It may be recalled that in the last couple of months the UNEP Risoe CDM/ JI pipeline had reduced the forecasted number of CERs available through the end of 2012).

We will be releasing a revised November figure in a few days as soon as the UNFCCC system is updated.

The table below at the end of this article has additional details on the projects submitted from India.

Leading indicator 2: Projects requesting registration
9  projects from India requested registration which forms 22% of the global number.

1 Installation of Bundled Composting Project in the state of Tamil Nadu
2 Emission free electricity generation at Harihar, Karnataka
3 Waste Heat Recovery Based Power generation at Vision Sponge Iron Private Ltd, West Bengal, India
4 Biomass Gasification based Power Generation by Beach Minerals Company Private Limited in India.
5 Reduction in specific steam consumption ratio of Process Air Compressor of Ammonia plant at Indo Gulf Fertilisers, (A unit of Aditya Birla Nuvo Limited) Jagdishpur.
6 Biomass based power project at T-Kallupatti village, Madurai District, Tamil Nadu, India
7 340 MW Gas based combined cycle power project expansion at Hazira
8 Bagasse based cogeneration project of Nizam Deccan Sugars Limited (NDSL)
9 51 MW wind power project of ONGC at Surajbari, Gujarat in India

 

Projects registered:
A total of 23 CDM projects were registered in November (34 in October) with a potential of generating 2.9 million CERs annually (2.1 million in October). Of these 5 projects (22%) came from India with a potential of generating 1.46 million CERs (49% of the amount issued globally).

Usually projects from India have been smaller in size. But in November two projects (out of the total 5) are from Rashtriya Chemical Fertilizers Limited and these N2O abatement projects account for 1.35 million CERs.
