Title: The Clean Development Mechanism as a Potential Source of Funding for Solar Cooking Projects

Date: July 2006 (Presented at the Solar Cookers and Food Processing International Conference in Granada, Spain)
Abstract: The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) was initially expected to provide an innovative source of funding for renewable energy projects, including projects promoting small-scale technologies such as solar cookers. With the CDM´s complexities, uncertainties and related transaction costs, it has been challenging for small scale projects, in particular those that involve many individual users to benefit from the CDM.
This paper analyses the current state of the CDM as it relates to solar cooking projects including a review of the CDM project cycle, appropriate baseline and monitoring methodologies, CDM transaction costs vs. benefits of certified emissions reductions (CERs), and a look at relevant projects already submitted to the CDM process.
The paper concludes by presenting various recommendations and ¨best practices¨ for moving a solar cooking project through the CDM process, while maximizing its success and minimizing transaction costs.
Keywords: CDM, Kyoto Protocol, solar cooking, certified emissions reductions, transaction costs.
