Abstract:
Solar home systems could be an excellent fit for the Clean DevelopmentMechanism under the Kyoto Protocol because they directly displace greenhouse gas emissions while contributing to sustainable rural development. Selling certified emission reduction credits under the CDM could help to accelerate SHS deployment. High transaction costs related to CDM procedures might however, prevent SHSs from benefiting from the CDM. The report explores how standardised baselines and streamlined monitoring and verification procedures could assist in reducing those transaction costs.
