pilot projects
Pilot Projects
  • Micro Hydro Project in Chendebji
    • 70 kW ( Kilowatts)
    • E7 financing
    • 500 tons CO2 sequestration
  • Feasibility study for Dagachhu Hydropower CDM Project

Run-of-the-river hydropower with installed capacity 107 MW with annual energy generation of 420 GWh

3. Pilot forestry CDM project

    • Enviro-trade (UK), Edinburgh Center for Carbon Mgmt, Namsay Consulting (Bhutan)
    • Only “concept note”. Proposal to be prepared only after approval by RGOB.

Objectives of the Project

  • To demonstrate the “Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)” under the Kyoto Protocol of the UNFCCC on the model of a micro hydro power plant
  • To construct a micro hydro power plant for Rural Electrification of Chendebji village
  • To present constraints encountered and corrective measures undertaken at various international discussion forums in order to contribute to the CDM rule making process
  • To pilot CDM project that has direct benefit to the local community for poverty reduction

History of the Project

The project was funded by e7 (group of leading 9 electric utility companies (now 10) from G8 countries)

2001/11: Pre-feasibility study conducted

2002/11: Feasibility study was conducted. The e7 Fund and the RGoB concluded with a MoU.

Experiences from Chendebji CDM project
  • Demonstration as the first CDM project in Bhutan.
  • Long duration from the concept stage to implementation stage
  • CDM Administrative cost are expensive and modalities complex
  • Electrification of 50 households, 5 institutional buildings and 1 tourist resort at Chendebji village.
  • Improvement in education and living standards by utilizing electricity.
  • Providing a clean form of renewable energy resulting in better health and reduction of firewood use.
  • Reduced deforestation and soil erosion.
  • Contribute to socio-economic development of the community.
recommendations
Recommendations

1. NEC to continue as focal agency and coordinate with stakeholders.

2. To fully benefit from carbon trading, human resources and capacity development is required along with public awareness.

3. Pilot projects should be implemented (learning by doing) to provide guidance in evaluating cost/benefits of carbon projects.

4. National strategy for CDM to be developed

5. Bundling of CDM projects to reduce transaction cost
