Underlining that focus should shift from "carbon credit" towards "green credit", he singled out solar energy, saying it needs to be integrated with hybrid system of energy to make it useful. He favoured setting up of a consortium of nations having potential in solar energy which could join hands with India in innovation and cutting-edge research that would reduce the cost of solar energy, making it more accessible to people. Chairing the first meeting of the reconstituted 'Prime Minister's Council on Climate Change here, Modi said that "instead of focussing on emissions and cuts alone, focus should shift on what we have done for clean energy generation, energy conservation and energy efficiency, and what more can be done in these areas," a PMO statement ...

United Nations recognition for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation 5.1.2015 Asian Age: Delhi
Adding yet another feather to its cap, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has been registered as the world’s first transport sector project under the Programme of Activities (PoA) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), enabling it to quantify climate change benefit from all metro operations in India, an official statement said. The move will also facilitate the fast-tracking of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) registration of all upcoming rail based metro projects in the country which will entitle them to carbon credits for the extent of reduction in carbon emissions, which could be traded in the international carbon market for money. PoA is a UN-mandated mechanism which allows similar carbon credit projects to be clubbed together that can be operated and managed under a single umbrella. “Thus, for claiming carbon credits in future, DMRC will be the managing entity for all other metros of India under the Program of Activity (PoA) mechanism which will also facilitate ...

U.N. carbon scheme investors unlikely to get lifeline from Lima 12.12.2014 FirstPost: World

LIMA (Reuters) - Hundreds of companies in developing countries that invested in projects to generate UN-backed carbon credits had hoped the Lima climate talks would yield measures boosting the price of the credits, but they are likely to be disappointed. Negotiators and carbon market experts say that discussions at the UN climate conference have not seriously addressed a collapse in carbon credit prices as diplomats focus on the type of commitments countries are expected to make in a new treaty expected next year. "Our clients were hopeful of some type of decisions on that," said Melissa Hirschheimer of Eqao Consulting which assisted many companies in Brazil develop and register projects at the UN.
