Wind Power Projects in the CDM


UCCEE staff assisted the Wind Energy Department at Risψ with providing a baseline assessment for the Zafarana 60 MW wind farm in northwestern Egypt.

Funded by the Danish Energy Agency, the project explored some of the key issues in regard to the assessment of projects under the CDM, namely baseline-setting, carbon financing, and environmental sustainability.

The project demonstrated how to apply the existing assessment methods, compare their implications, and recommend methods and approaches for assessing the baseline, carbon financing, social costs, and environmental sustainability of wind power projects.

The report is available for download in PDF format.
