Additionality

Definition

  • Emission reductions that are additional to any that would occur in the absence of the project

Importance

Environmental Additionality

Project Additionality

  • Most critical issue for project acceptance

  • Project will be refused if additionality is not proven


Additionality1

Additionality

How to Demonstrate

  • Flow chart of series of questions that lead to narrowing down of potential options

  • Qualitative or quantitative assessment of different potential options and an indication of why the project is more likely

  • Qualitative or quantitative assessment of one or more barriers facing proposed project

  • An indication that the project type is not common practice in the proposed area of implementation

Additionality in am003

Not Required

Additionality in AM003

Baseline and project are the only plausible options

  • Continue BAU (no collection)

  • LFG collection and flaring

  • High efficiency flaring and power generation

Calculate a conservative IRR (excluding CERs)

Project IRR  4%

IRR < Conservative

acceptable IRR

N

Not Additional

Gov. Bond Rate = 22%

Additional

Y

Additional


Irr calculations elements

IRR Calculations -- Elements

  • Capital Costs (-ve)

    • Electricity Generator (1 kW * 12 unit)

    • Flaring equipment

    • Gas plant

    • Assembling and testing

    • Connection to grid

  • Operating Costs (-ve)

    • Gas plant and flaring equip. O&M

    • Maintenance and supervision

    • Administrative expenses (PCF and EB)

    • Land rent

  • Others (-ve)

    • Income Tax

  • Revenue (+ve)

    • Carbon credits

    • Electricity sales

IRR  4% < Benchmark IRR  Additional


Benchmark irr

Benchmark IRR

  • Government bond rate plus suitable project risk premium

  • Commercial lending rate

  • Expert views on expected IRRs for this or comparable project types

  • Other hurdle rates that can be applied for the country or sector


Application of additionality test

Application of Additionality Test

Y

Part 1: Has construction of the project already started

N

Y

Part 2: Is Execution of Project based on direct on indirect legal obligation?

N

Project is more attractive

IRR  4% < acceptable IRR

Part 3a: Financial or Economic barrier (Benchmark Approach)

Project Economically less attractive

Y

Part 4: Are many projects, based on same type of technology recently implemented without CDM (50/20 test)

No landfill in Brazil employs this technology

N

Project Additional


General advice when proving additionality

General Advice When Proving Additionality

  • Transparent information should be provided

  • Documented evidence has to be available

  • Conservative interpretation of documented evidence as how it is used to demonstrate additionality

  • Conservative assumptions to be used
