Determining the baseline in exact accordance with UNFCCC regulations is critical in order to get a CDM project validated. In addition, the additionality argument is vital to demonstrate how the CDM is motivating the project to move forward. QT has as much expertise as anyone in the carbon business in structuring the baseline and additionality arguments.
The Monitoring Plan: Perhaps no aspect of the CDM project is more important than the monitoring plan. The monitoring plan provides the step-by-step list of actions that a CER seller must undertake in order to determine what the emission reductions are from a particular project. The monitoring plan must be in exact accordance with the CDM methodology, which will outline what data needs to be collected, what frequency, how the data is archived, etc. If the monitoring plan does not follow the methodology, CERs may be delayed or even forfeited - potentially raising the risks to the seller. QT helps sellers implement a solid monitoring plan to reduce this risk as much as possible.
