Call for public inputs on the "Draft guidelines for determination of baseline and additionality thresholds for standardized baselines using the performance-penetration approach" (26 September 2012 to 16 October 2012, 24:00 GMT).
The Board at its sixty-ninth meeting considered the draft guidelines for determination of baseline and additionality thresholds for standardized baselines using the performance-penetration approach, and requested the secretariat to launch a call for public inputs, taking into account stakeholders' relevant comments to the annotated agenda of the meeting and Board members' comments during the meeting.
The stakeholders are invited to provide their inputs on the draft guidelines. While providing comments, the stakeholders may like to focus on the following aspects; however their inputs on any other aspect are welcome.
- Suitability of the draft guidelines to different sectors. The proposed approach could be applicable to different sectors.
- Criteria for defining the common practice (CP) segment
The broad assumption under this approach is that when the performance-penetration curve is plotted for a sector, the segment of technologies significantly contributing to the output of the sector with similar performance levels have a relatively "flat" slope on the curve, and that the technologies included within this segment can be defined as common practice technologies. A segment box with the dimension of 50% in length and 20% in width is proposed to identify the common practice segment (please refer to step 2 of the draft guideline).
- Stringency of level of thresholds. In the draft guidelines, the emission factor of the output generated by most clean technologies (represented by weighted average emission factor of top 20% output level) of the identified common practice segment is used to derive the baseline emission factor (please refer to step 3 of the draft guideline).
- Exclusion of highly inefficient plants. Highly inefficient plants are considered to be outliers and excluded while plotting the performance-penetration curve for the purpose of conservativeness (please refer to step 1 of the draft guideline).
The call for inputs from stakeholders was open from 26 September to 16 October 2012 (24:00 GMT).
