Simplifying and streamlining of CDM continues, launch of platform for voluntary cancellation of CERs scheduled for September

more

At its 85th meeting, the CDM Executive Board continued simplifying and streamlining the CDM by inter alia adopting new additionality rules for programmes of activities. The Board further decided to review existing approaches for additionality demonstration (e.g. first of its kind) and to identify options for introducing new models (such as negative lists). EB 85 also approved the preparation of a methodological framework for the development of standardized baselines and the establishment of a database on the cost and efficiency of technologies for SB development.
Against the backdrop of the difficult market conditions, the Board discussed a proposal for the indirect subsidisation of the accreditation fee for DOEs. The launch of the platform for the voluntary cancellation of CERs is scheduled for September 2015.
