Submission of comments to the DOE/AE Compilation of submitted inputs:
4.	For very very large scale hydropower project, maybe the installed capacity is greater than 300~500MW or more, it is unlikely that they will be build after CDM consideration. This kind of hydropower project can be considered as the mainstay of the grid, they have large capacity and can provide large and stable amount electricity to the client compared with other small scale hydro and wind plant; they can enhance the security of the power grid and have certain adjustable capability to balance the peak/valley load of the grid. With the development of national economy, the power needs keep increasing. Even without CDM, this kind of hydropower project will also be developed in a suitable time with suitable manner. In contrast to small scale hydro and wind and other renewable energy source, they have better capability to overcome the financial barrier, i.e. differently treated by Grid Company with different tariff policy, which will not impact on the profit/return of Grid Company as the grid company has a lot of policies to balance the loss/profit. EB shall set a cap of installed capacity for large hydropower project, or update the tool for the demonstration and assessment of additionality considering these concerns.

1.	Referring to the following web page:
http://bbs.55168.cn/archiver/?tid-172453.html&page=45
the electricity price is 0.317 instead of 0.288 in PDD; the main body construction started in March 2006, the base of the powerhouse was dig in November 2006, the concrete construction of the base of the powerhouse started in June 2007, 
Referring to the following web page:
http://gzrb.gog.com.cn/system/2010/11/11/010943785.shtml
the project started water storage of the reservoir in Aug 2009 and full capacity operation in June 2010. Therefore the relevant information in PDD is false. EB must issue strict and exercisable punishment measures towards the PP who cook the accounts and make CDM purer and purer.

The kind of “CERs” produced by this kind of project activity will devalue the entire CERs in the carbon market, which is disgraceful as same as Quantitative Easing of Uncle Sam. EB shall set a cap of installed capacity for large hydropower project, or update the tool for the demonstration and assessment of additionality considering these concerns.
