CDM Benefits on Micro Hydro Projects Uttarakhand

UREDA has registered First CDM Project on 3rd December 2010 in state of Uttarakhand for carbon credits. The Project Design Document (PDD) was prepared by UREDA under Small Scale category for availing CDM benefits against the reduction in carbon emission through construction of 29 Bundled MHPs of 3.115 MW capacity in the State of Uttarakhand. These projects are located in the remote districts of Uttarakhand like Pithoragarh, Bageshwar, Chamoli, Uttarakashi and Tehri Garhwal. This project was validated by M/s DNV AS, Bangalore after getting host country approval from Ministry of Environment and Forest, Govt. of India.  Under this project, emission of 8668 Ton of CO2 will reduce to release in environment against the annual generation of 11.17 MU of electricity by these projects. 

 The executive board formed under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has registered the project submitted by UREDA on 3rd December, 2010. After registration of the project, UREDA will get approximately Rs 80.00 Lakhs annually against 8668 CERs up to 2nd December, 2020 (10 Years). This amount will be shared between the Village Energy Committee (maintaining the MHP’s) and UREDA. The verification of this project by DOE is in progress. The project is registered with the following details:
