PART I. Programme of activities (PoA)


SECTION A. General description of PoA

A.1. Title of the PoA


>>>>Installation of Energy Efficient Cookstoves in Myanmar
Version: 05
Date: 12/03/2017

A.2. Purpose and general description of the PoA


>>>>The intention of the proposed small scale Program of Activity (“hereafter SSC-PoA”) involves
the installation of energy efficient Improved Cooking Stoves (ICS) in the households/
communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) (hereafter “users”) of the Republic of the
Union of Myanmar for cooking and water heating purposes. It is also intended to expand the
geographical scope of the PoA to the other countries in Asia. Implementation of the proposed
activity will reduce the usage of non-renewable biomass i.e. fuel wood for users for cooking and
water heating purposes. Thus, the PoA will reduce the GHG emission occurring from the
combustion of non-renewable biomass, i.e. fuel wood, thereby also contributing to sustainable
development. ICSs that will be disseminated under this PoA are more efficient in transferring heat
from the fuel to the pot than the so called traditional stoves.

Myanmar is an agricultural country with plenty of livestock and agricultural residues. The total
population is 54,584,650. Around 70% of the population residing in rural area has to depend
heavily on forests for their basic needs1. Fuel wood is found to be the main source of cooking fuel
for 73% of households in Myanmar (42% of urban households and 93% of rural households)2.

The Coordinating and Managing Entity (CME) will target all potential rural and urban populations in
all the states of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The majority of populations currently use
either open fire or “three-stone” method for cooking purpose. Three stone stove is the cheapest
stove to produce, which is made off three suitable stones or bricks of the same height and mud on
which as cooking pot can be balanced over a fire. These open fire are fairly inefficient at converting
energy into heat for cooking. Fuel is wasted, as heat is allowed to escape into the open air.
Furthermore, these open fires and primitive cook are associated with a number of diseases, the
most serious of which are chronic and acute respiratory illnesses, such as bronchitis and
pneumonia.

The PoA will promote the dissemination of energy efficient ICS. This will in turn reduce
deforestation and degradation of forests in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar through
participation of the people in adopting energy efficient stoves. This will also contribute to
improvement in quality of lives of the people from the Republic of the Union of Myanmar through
reduction of drudgery, time and money spent on fuel wood collection and through improvement of
indoor air pollution. Globally, the project will contribute by reducing emission of GHG into the
atmosphere.

General operating and implementing framework of PoA

Core CarbonX Solutions Private Limited (hereafter “CoreCarbonX”) is the coordinating/managing


entity (“CME”) for this SSC-PoA and will be implementing the CDM Programme Activities (CPAs) in

CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in association with Myanmar Ceramic Society (MCS). Under
the scheme, CoreCarbonX will coordinate with MCS and other CPA Implementer.

The CME assumes responsibility for checking individual activities for their compliance with the
CDM requirements. The CME will consistently verify all activities of the PoA, with people qualified
to do so and report the findings in a logical and auditable manner. As a consequence of checking
the system at validation, the DOE can reduce its efforts at inclusion to a check of compliance with
the system and if allowed by the methodology.

CPA Implementer
The CPA Implementer will distribute the ICSs to the households/communities/Small and Medium
Enterprises (SMEs)3 through their staff or the channel of the representatives’ distribution networks
created in each province vis-a-vis the distributors/agents. The CME will conduct training
programme for the CPA Implementer and their distributors’ staff; and develop the capacity.

Distributors
The CPA Implementer and/or its distributors/agents (hereafter “CI”) will provide the ICS to the
individual households/ communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) users. The CI will
provide training to the staff employed for the distribution of ICS and further oversee the
implementation of the ICS. Training will be given to the staff on record keeping and maintenance of
the ICS. They will also be responsible for data recording and data storage.

When giving out the ICS, the representative of CI will sign a sale agreement with the end users
containing not only information about the transaction, i.e. ICS model, serial number, but also the
name, location/address and Identification Number of the user, the unique identification number of
ICS and the fuel that was being used earlier along with the type of stove used which is being
replaced (the “Sales Agreement”).

The Sale Agreement will assert the legal rights of the carbon credits generated by the ICS to the
CME. Based on the Sales Agreement, distributors will transfer the information of each ICS to CI
central Record, which will ensure that no ICS is counted more than once under the SSC-CPAs or
the PoA. The distribution/Installations Record will further be transferred to the CME which is stored
it in electronic format. These records will also serve as the basis for the calculation of CERs.

The monitoring plan will be validated and verified by a Designated Operational Entity (“DOE”).
Policy/measure or stated goal of the PoA

With the implementation of PoA, the ICS will replace the current usage of conventional cook stoves
in the households/communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)users. This will improve the
indoor air pollution and reduce harmful GHG emission evolved into the atmosphere. This will also
benefit the women due to less time spent on fire wood collection and they can use those quality
time for other households and or communities and or Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)users
work like teaching to kids and engaging themselves in some income earning activities.

 The PoA will replace the use of fuel wood in a large number of households and in
communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) cooking in the Republic of the
Union of Myanmar which will result in the GHG emission reduction and conservation of
fuel wood.
 Efficiently transferring the heat to the cooking medium ensures exact usage of fuel for
the cooking activity reducing GHG emissions. The depletion rate of forest reserves in
provincial areas will be reduced considerably.

Socio and Economic Benefits:


 Implementation of project activity results in employment opportunities for people
involved with installation, maintenance and sales of these house hold biomass based
cookers.
 Program will improve the status of living of people in households and people /owners
involved in communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) cooking since the
community level implementation of units of these kinds can be carried out at
considerably lower costs. There will be less dependence on firewood and its expenses
and time associated with firewood buying and collection.
 Business development component of the PoA has resulted in the enhancement of
capacity development and technical knowhow for moderately educated people in the
community through workshops, seminars and training programs.
 Adaptation of locally manufactured technology using available raw materials with
optimised energy efficiencies leads to build a technical self-reliance.

A.6. Technologies/measures
>> Emission reductions from the ICS units will be calculated using the approved methodology of
AMS. II.G. Energy efficiency measures in the thermal applications of non-renewable biomass,
version 07.0; hence falling under the Type II project activity – Energy efficiency improvement
projects.

A typical SSC-CPA will replace conventional firewood stoves with higher efficiency ICS models by
leveraging resources provided by the PoA. ICSs are more efficient than conventional firewood
stoves as they reduce heat loss and improve heat transfer and/or combustion efficiency. The
efficiency of the project ICS shall be based on certification by a national standards body or an
appropriate certifying agent recognized by that body or manufacturer specifications on efficiency
based on water boiling test (WBT) may be used.
Each respective SSC-CPA-DD will describe the technical specification of the cook-stove envisaged
for dissemination under the CPA.

The ICS models are fuel efficient, resulting in a decrease in fuel use in comparison to conventional
pre-project stoves while also reducing particulate matter and carbon emissions. Design
considerations have also streamlined assembly and construction to reduce costs and production
times.

The project activity will continually assess biomass stove technology options with the goal of
providing the high performing, affordable and locally appropriate technologies to the local
environments when possible. As the PoA expands, several models of biomass stoves produced by

Version 05.0 Page 5 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
different manufacturers may be included in the PoA. Inclusion of such stoves would be subject to
compliance with requirements of the methodology and the eligibility criteria of the PoA. The CME is
committed to investing in research and development for the improvement of the current stoves
being disseminated. Thus, during the life of the PoA, research and development may result in
dissemination of more efficient ICS models, which shall be absorbed by this SSC-PoA, subject to
methodological and eligibility criteria of the PoA. Upon inclusion into the project activity, all
appliances will remain valid throughout the lifetime of the project period until the CME chooses to
discontinue crediting of the improved stoves.

A.7 Public funding of PoA


>> No public funding or official development assistance (ODA) have or will be diverted for the
implementation of the PoA.

SECTION B. Demonstration of additionality and development of eligibility criteria

B.1. Demonstration of additionality for PoA


>> In accordance with paragraph 10 of “Standard for demonstration of additionality, development
of eligibility criteria and application of multiple methodologies for programme of activities” Version
04, EB 87, PoAs that consist of one or more small-scale projects as CPAs shall include eligibility
criteria derived from all the relevant requirements of the methodological tool “Demonstration of
additionality of small-scale project activities”.

As per the paragraph 11 (c) of “Demonstration of Additionality of Small-Scale Project Activities”,


Version 10, EB 83 Annex 14:“11 . Documentation of barriers, as per paragraph 1 above, is not
required for the positive list of technologies and project activity types that are defined as
automatically additional for project sizes up to and including the small-scale CDM thresholds (e.g.
installed capacity up to 15 MW). The positive list comprises of: (c) Project activities solely
composed of isolated units where the users of the technology/measure are households or
communities or Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) 4 and where the size of each unit is no
larger than 5% of the small-scale CDM thresholds; “

The PoA involves the dissemination of ICS (isolated units) to the households/ communities/Small
and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) traditional cookstoves users. Furthermore, the size of each unit
will be 5% well under the small-scale CDM threshold capacity of 180GWhth

The aforesaid requirement has been developed as eligibility criteria #07 for inclusion of a CPA in
the PoA, thus ensuring that each CPA included in the PoA is additional and would not occur in
absence of CDM.

B.2. Eligibility criteria for inclusion of a CPA in the PoA


>> The eligibility criteria for inclusion of a CPA under the PoA are in accordance with the “Standard
for demonstration of additionality, development of eligibility criteria and application of multiple
methodologies for Programme of Activities”, Version 04.0, EB 87 as follows:

1. The geographic boundary of the SSC-CPA area is uniquely defined and located in the
Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
2. CPA will be uniquely identified and defined in an ambiguous manner.
3. The CPA will involve replacement of traditional three stone cook stoves using woody
biomass for cooking and heating water. The ICS that will be distributed under CPA will be
new cookstoves. CPA ICS of single pot or multi pot, portable or in-situ, shall have a

minimum rated efficiency of 20%. CPA-DD section A.5, specifying on type(s) and efficiency
measurement(s) of the ICS used, including, among others, a description whether ICS are
fixed or portable and a specification of the capacity and approximated dimensions.
4. The sales agreement of the first ICS in the CPA will be the start date of the CPA. It will be
ensured that the start date of the CPA’s will be after the publication of the PoA.
5. Each CPA shall conform to applied methodology of the PoA – AMS-II.G.
6. The maximum energy saving of each SSC-CPA will be less than 180 GWh/year which is
the small scale threshold defined by AMS II.G and SSC CPA will remain within those
threshold level throughout the crediting period of the CPA.
7. SSC CPA will meet the requirements pertaining to the demonstration of additionality falls
under positive list as specified in “Demonstrating additionality of small-scale project
activities”.
Project activities solely composed of isolated units where the users of the
technology/measure are households/ communities/ Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
and where the size of each unit is no larger than 5% of the small-scale CDM thresholds;”.
The energy saving from ICS supplied for SSC CPA will be lower than the 5% of the Type II
threshold of 180 GWhth for small scale project activities. The 5% corresponds to maximum
of 9 GWhth saving from each ICS.
8. A Local stakeholder consultation and Environmental Impact Analysis for energy efficient
cookstoves should be conducted at PoA level.
9. The ICS distribution under SSC CPA will not result in diversion of official development
assistance.
10. The SSC-CPA will involve the distribution of ICS to target groups which may be any of the
following:
Households
Communities users
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
The selected target groups that shall be included in each CPA will be distinguished in each
CPA. Target demographic shall be specified in respective CPA DDs.
11. Sampling for each SSC-CPA shall be done in accordance with the “Standard for sampling
and surveys for CDM project activities and programme of activities”; The sampling will be
done for a single CPA or group of CPAs. In case a single sampling plan for more than one
CPA is used, “parameter values shall be estimated by sampling in accordance with the
requirements in the applied methodology separately and independently for each of the
CPAs included in a PoA except when a single sampling plan covering a group of CPAs is
undertaken.
12. As per the “Guidelines on Assessment of Debundling for SSC project activities” in case if
each independent subsystem/measures (ICS) included in the CPA of a PoA is no greater
than 1% of the small scale threshold defined by the methodology applied, then that CPA of
PoA is exempted from performing de-bundling check, i.e. considered as being not a de-
bundled component of a large scale activity. It will be checked that each ICS under SSC
CPA is no greater than 1% of the small scale thresholds.
13. The SSC CPA will not be registered or is being registered, as a stand-alone CDM or as a
CPA of another PoA.
14. Monitoring shall consist of checking of representative sample of the ICS installed once
every two years (biennial) to determine if they are still operating (those devices that have
been replaced by an equivalent in-service device are counted as operating). The
representative sample will be determined through the simple random sampling method.
Optionally, other sampling approaches may be used in accordance with “Sampling and
surveys for CDM project activities and programmes of activities” and Guideline for
Sampling and Surveys for CDM Project Activities and Programme of Activities, when
sampling techniques or statistical analysis necessitates it.

B.4. Date of completion of application of methodology and standardized baseline and


contact information of responsible person(s)/ entity(ies)
>> Completed for the applied methodology on 23/11/2015. Contact information is mentioned in
Appendix 1.

SECTION C. Management system


>> The operational and management arrangement as established by the CME for implementing
PoA is as follows:

(i) A record keeping system for each CPA under the PoA

The CME will work with several CPA implementers and its agents for distribution of ICS.
A sales record will be completed at the point of sale by the CI and its agents. The information
collected by the CI and its agents from the end-user will be transferred to an electronic database
which is updated regularly (may be in form of excel sheets). The sales record carries all the sales
information listed above including the traditional stove type (charcoal stove/firewood stove) used
prior to ICS installation. This involve various details involving
• Name of customer
• Address and ID number

Version 05.0 Page 10 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
• Stove model and serial number
• Installation date
• Type of stove (present unit) the cooker is replacing
Type of fuel which was earlier used in the cook stove

Sales records are transferred from agents to each CI and from the CI to the CME. Likewise,
monitoring records are transferred from each monitoring organisation, if any, to the CME. The CME
will ensure that appropriate records are maintained for each SSC-CPA. Each SSC-CPA will use a
record keeping tool. These records will also serve as the basis for the calculation of CERs

(ii) A system/procedure to avoid double accounting e.g. to avoid the case of including a new
CPA that has been already registered either as CDM project activity or as a CPA of another
PoA

Double counting of the improved biomass cookstove will be normally avoided by assigning each
unit a special serial number. The record maintaining system with customer’s name and address,
stove model and serial number, installation date, type of unit the new cooker is replacing ensures
that the cooking stove can be traced in a specific CPA to avoid double counting.

As part of the inclusion of a SSC-CPA under the PoA, an agreement will be signed by the CI and
the CME. The CME will establish formal agreements with all project participants CI as per the PoA-
DD and the CPA-DDs to ensure clear evidence of ownership of emission reductions resulting from
the project activity. All rights are transferred to the CME through contracts and/or written assertions
in the transaction paperwork. End users are notified of ownership rights through carbon waivers
provided at the point of sale, which stipulate that they cannot claim for emission reductions from
the project and that all emission reduction rights are transferred to the CME.

The CME will impart the initial training to the CI and its nominated agents. Training will be given to
staffs on implementation record keeping and maintenance of the ICS. These technicians will be
designated for certain number of ICS and will be responsible for data recording and data storage.
Suitable training regarding the rules of the CDM and PoA will be given to nominated person of
each CI.

The CME shall develop and implement a management system that includes the following

(a) A clear definition of roles and responsibilities of personnel involved in the process of inclusion
of CPAs, including a review of their competencies:
The role and responsibilities for the review of the inclusion of the CPA in the PoA is as follows:

Role Responsibility
CPA Implementer Will evaluate if the ICS replaces traditional three stone cook stoves
without a grate or a chimney.
Will maintain the data
Will conduct the survey or facilitate the survey through a third party
Will monitor the activity of its staff and agents

 Approve the CPA DD for the inclusion and forward it to the
DOE.

(b) Records of arrangements for training and capacity development for personnel:

The operation of the ICS is carried out by the user, and training on how to operate and maintain
the ICS is given by the agents. The CME will provide the initial training for the CI and its nominated
agents; and the training will be penetrated through to the users. The training records will be
maintained in the database of the CME.

Physical maintenance of the ICS will be provided by the CI, its agents and their technicians. The
distributors will follow the monitoring plan and procedures for identifying each stove sold during the
course of the project and those which are still in use, so the appropriate number of emission
reductions is claimed.

(c) A procedure to avoid double counting (e.g. to avoid the case of including a new CPA that has
already been registered either as a CDM project activity or as a CPA of another PoA):

This has been developed as CPA inclusion eligibility criteria. Thus, any CPA included in the PoA,
will be checked for, not being registered either as a CDM project activity or as a CPA of another
PoA.

(d) Records and documentation control process for each CPA under the PoA:

The CI will transfer the information to an electronic database (the installations record) which is
maintained updated regularly by CME. The Installations Record carries all the sales information
listed above including the actual installation date. The installations record is a key component of
the annual monitoring report, since the actual installation date is used to calculate the emission
reductions achieved by the ICS installed.
(e) Measures for continuous improvements of the PoA management system;

It will be ensured that the PoA management system will be reviewed annually for the continuous
improvements for the management system. There will be a systematic collection and analysis of
data to ensure that:
 There will be relevant and sufficient documentation of management systems for the scope and
scale of ICS implementation.

The CME will also monitor their improvements to determine their effectiveness and make further
changes if needed.

Updating eligibility criteria


Updating of eligibility criteria will be done as per the “Standard Demonstration of additionality,
development of eligibility criteria and application of multiple methodologies for programmes of
activities.”

SECTION D. Duration of PoA

D.1. Start date of PoA


>> The starting date of the PoA will be the date of commencement of validation of the PoA – i.e.
the date on which the PoA-DD is first published for global stakeholder consultation. PoA-DD and
the CPA-DD was webhosted by 01/10/2013. Thus 01/10/2013 is considered as the start date of the
PoA.

D.2. Duration of the PoA


>>28 Years

SECTION E. Environmental impacts

E.1. Level at which environmental analysis is undertaken


>> The PoA involves the distribution and installation of energy efficient cook stoves. These efficient
cooking stoves do not entail significant negative environmental impacts. For this reason, it is
reasonable to undertake a single environmental analysis at the level of the PoA rather than
individual assessments for each SSC-CPA.

Version 05.0 Page 13 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
E.2. Analysis of the environmental impacts
>> The implementation of PoA does not impose any severe impacts on the ecological system in
the surrounding areas. This PoA will help in reducing the consumption of fuelwood by efficient fuel
combustion thereby reducing the pressure of deforestation, reducing indoor air pollution. The
propose use of efficient Cooking Stove technology will reduce adverse environmental and social
impacts associated with the use of non-renewable biomass. The planned reduced consumption of
the stated baseline fuel will have sustainable benefit for all households/communities/Small and
Medium Enterprises (SMEs) traditional cookstoves users included in the project activity. These
sustainable benefits have been summarily presented in Section A.2 of this PoA DD. The
implementation of the PoA will reduce workloads involved in fuel collection, and by reducing indoor
air pollution, will reduce the risk of respiratory diseases, especially for women and children.
Efficient or improved Cooking stoves will also contribute to environment protection by reducing
biomass consumption and hence greenhouse gas emissions, mainly CO2, when the combusted
biomass originates from non-renewable stocks.

Since the typical SSC-CPA will involve the installation of improved cooking stoves which will have
positive environmental impact, hence the CPAs that will be considered under this PoA do not need
any further environmental impact assessment.

SECTION F. Local stakeholder consultation

F.1. Solicitation of comments from local stakeholders


>> Local stakeholder consultation meeting for the Programme of Activities titled “Energy Efficient
Cookstoves in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar” was conducted on 23rd May 2013 from 3:00
PM to 6:00 PM in the conference hall of Hotel Sedona, Yangon, Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

The groups of the stakeholders identified are fuel wood users, ICS manufactures, Non-
Governmental Organisation (NGOs), International NGOs, local NGOs and concerned government
departments. All the stakeholders were informed about the project, agenda, venue and date of the
meeting through invitation by email, telephone and personal contacts two weeks prior to the
meeting. Further, a non technical summary of the project, which gives a clear idea on the project
activity including the measures taken under the project and the potential benefits of the project,
was also sent to the identified stakeholders.

Mr. Niroj Mohanty, Managing Director, Core CarbonX Sols Pvt Ltd welcomed the participants and
gave a short introduction of the project developer, Core CarbonX Sols Pvt Ltd. He then gave a brief
description of the agenda and background of the stakeholder consultation and the Gold Standard.
The next point in the meeting was the election of the chairperson for the meeting and all the
stakeholders unanimously elected Mr. Frank Rittner as the chairperson. The meeting was then
presided by the chairperson.

On the request of the chairperson, Mr. Niroj Mohanty briefed the participants about the greenhouse
gas emission, global warming, climate change and their impacts in the world. He also explained
about the Kyoto Protocol which was initiated as the global response for combating the climate
change impacts and CDM process is one of the mechanisms of Kyoto Protocol. He also gave a
brief idea of the CDM project cycle and the gold standard project cycle.

He then informed the stakeholders about the sustainability issues and elaborated some of the
potential projects which can take major step in the development of the Republic of the Union of
Myanmar as well as combat climate change issues.

He then explained that the majority of households, commercials and institutional 8 traditional
cookstoves users currently use either open fire or three-stone method for cooking purpose which

8
Commercials and institutional here intended as communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

Version 05.0 Page 14 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
are fairly inefficient at converting energy into heat for cooking. Fuel is wasted, as heat is allowed to
escape into the open air. Furthermore, these open fires and primitive cook associated with a
number of diseases like bronchitis and pneumonia. Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) have been
designed to provide an enclosure for the fire to reduce the loss of radiant heat, protect it against
wind and increase heat transfer, thereby increasing the efficiency. Thus, it is essential that
adoption of ICS on a much larger scale is needed. He further told that the improved cook stove has
a robust, maintenance free design made of durable materials to make sure longer performance. Its
efficient design ensures complete combustion of fuel and cleaner fire therefore needing
considerably less fuel than traditional stoves. This means speedy cooking, time and fuel savings,
cleaner pans, kitchen walls and indoor atmosphere.

Mr. Frank Rittner, addressed the stakeholders about the fuel wood availability and environment
scenario in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

He said that ICS is very convenient and suitable for cooking and will contribute a lot in reducing
fuel wood expenditures, improving indoor air pollution and reducing GHG emissions.

Questions for clarification about project explanation:


The chairperson called upon the participants to seek clarifications and express their concerns on
the likely impacts of the project. Participants were given time to go through the project documents
that were made available in the meeting. Various concerns raised by the stakeholders are listed in
section F.2

Blind sustainable development exercise

After the question and answer session, the Blind scoring exercise was conducted. The three
categories of indicators (environment development, social development and technological &
Economic development) were explained and a blank matrix was projected using power point.
Participants were then asked for their judgement on each of the indicators and started discussing
them. First, general opinions were collected, and then stakeholders were asked to summarize
arguments for positive, neutral as well as arguments for negative scoring. On this base, a
consensus on the most appropriate scoring was defined. After filling in the whole matrix, each
scoring was repeated so that the participants could make final remarks.

Discussion on continuous input/grievance mechanism:

The project developer then gave the email-id and telephone number to the stakeholders to give
their continuous input.

Discussion on monitoring sustainable development:


The stakeholders were asked for their ideas on how to monitor the sustainable development
indicators.

Mr. Niroj Mohanty thanked the stakeholders for their attention and asked them to fill in the
evaluation forms for feedback on the meeting and the project.

F.2. Summary of comments received


>> Question: Will the improved stove really perform as well as our three-stone stoves? (Mr. U.
Alexander Khaing)
Answer: The stove will be highly efficient as compared to the three-stone stoves and will use less
wood.

Question: Do we need to pay anything for the stove?


Answer: The stove will be distributed at a subsidized rate. The project will seek to claim carbon
credits from the displacement of fossil fuel that would be used for meeting similar thermal energy
needs. The profit generated from the sale of carbon credits will be used to subsidize the ICS.

Version 05.0 Page 15 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
Question: Can we have a seminar to teach us how to use the ICS?
Answer: Yes, the seminar will be arranged in the later stage. However, all the stakeholders will be
given a simple training on how to use the ICS.

Question: Does the project increase employment opportunities in Myanmar?


The project will employ people for improved cook stove manufacturing and distribution. Hence, the
project will give a good employment opportunity for the local people.

Question: What is the life of ICS?


Answer: The ICS have lifespan of around 4-5 years.

Question: Who is responsible for the project monitoring?


Answer: The project will be monitored by Core CarbonX Sols Pvt Ltd.

Question: What will be the price of each ICS?


Answer: The price of each ICS will be around 3-6 USD for household ICS considering the
proposed ICS in the first CPA. However, this will also be dependent on type of ICS and change as
per the technology..

Subsequent to question and answers, the chairperson summarized the concerns articulated and
clarifications provided. He also requested the participants to any other concerns if they have to the
project developer for further clarifications.

F.3. Report on consideration of comments received


>> The clarifications requested by local stakeholders attending the meeting were addressed.

SECTION G. Approval and authorization


>> A letter of approval (LoA) was issued by DNA of the the Republic of the Union of Myanmar on
29th Sep 2015, authorizing Core CarbonX Sols Pvt Ltd as the coordinating/managing entity and
Myanmar Ceramic Society as project participant and confirming that the PoA assists in achieving
sustainable development.
The coordinating/managing entity has obtained a letter of authorization of its coordination of the
proposed CDM PoA from the host Party.

PART II. Generic component project activity (CPA)

SECTION A. General description of a generic CPA

A.1. Purpose and general description of generic CPAs


>> The proposed small scale CPA xxx involves the installation of energy efficient biomass based
Improved Cooking Stoves (ICS) to (the target population) by (CI) in the Republic of the Union of
Myanmar. Implementation of the proposed activity will reduce the usage of non renewable biomass
i.e. fuel wood for house hold activities. The ICS installed as part of the CPA xxx will replace the
traditional three stoves

Implementation of the CPA xxx will reduce the usage of non renewable biomass i.e. fuel wood for
house hold activities. Thus the CPA xxx will reduce the GHG emission occurring from the
combustion of non renewable biomass, i.e. fuel wood, thereby also contributing to sustainable
development.

Contribution to sustainable development


Environmental Benefits:

Version 05.0 Page 16 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
 Households/communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)traditional cookstoves
users will be benefitted to lesser level of indoor air pollution viz CO2, carbon monoxide
and particulate matter as a result of implementation of the project activity. Pollutants
released from the combustion of firewood fuel form a key factor for many respiratory
diseases found in households. The CPA xxx will help in reducing the occurrence of
many respiratory diseases that happen due to burning of firewood.
 Efficiently transferring the heat to the cooking medium will ensure exact usage of fuel
for the cooking activity reducing GHG emissions. The depletion rate of forest reserves
in provincial areas will be reduced considerably.

Socio and Economic Benefits:


 Implementation of project activity will result in employment opportunities for people
involved with distribution/installation, maintenance and sales of these efficient
household biomass cookstoves.
 Program will improve the status of living of people in households and people associated
with cooking in communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) places since the
community level implementation of units of these kinds can be carried out at
considerably lower costs. There will be less dependence on firewood and expenses and
time associated with firewood buying and collection.
 Business development component of the CPA xxx will result in the enhancement of
capacity development and technical knowhow for moderately educated people in the
community through workshops, seminars and training programs.
 Adaptation of locally manufactured technology using available raw materials with
optimised energy efficiencies will lead to build up self-reliance for certain number of
people..

B.4. Description of baseline scenario


>> As per Paragraph 12 of the applied methodology AMS IIG Version 07, “it is assumed that in the
absence of the project activity, the baseline scenario would be the use of fossil fuels for meeting
similar thermal energy needs.”
The emission reductions are calculated by multiplying the thermal energy from annual biomass
savings stemming from non-renewable biomass with an emission factor for fossil fuels. As per
AMS-II.G Version 07, the biomass saving is calculated by referring to para 17 of option 2 of the
AMS IIG where baseline wood use (Bold) was determined through survey methods. As specified in
the methodology, a value of 81.6 tCO2/TJ is used as the emission factor for the substitution of non-
renewable biomass by similar consumers (EFprojected_fossilfuel).

B.5. Demonstration of eligibility for a generic CPA


>> The assessment and demonstration of eligibility for a typical SSC-CPA is demonstrated in PoA-
DD Section B.2 and specifically determined at the CPA level as shown in each CPA-DD, section
D.5.

B.6. Estimation of emission reductions of a generic CPA

B.6.1. Explanation of methodological choices


>> According to paragraph 11 of methodology AMS II.G, version 07.0, emission reductions shall be
calculated as
Emission reductions are calculated as:

Where:
Indices for the situation where more than one type of project
device is introduced to replace the pre-project devices9
J Indices for the situation where there is more than one batch of
project device

9
For example, in some instances, full replacement of the pre-project device would require the
implementation of more than one project device (e.g. one stove suitable for cooking and the other stove
suitable for cooking/boiling water).

Emission reductions during year y in t CO2e
Emission reductions by project device of type i and batch j during
year y in t CO2e

Since the CPA xxx involves the deployment of improved cookstoves, the following equation is
applicable as per AMS II.G, Version 07.0:

Where:
= Quantity of woody biomass that is saved in tonnes per cook
stove device of type i and batch j during year y
= Fraction of woody biomass that can be established as non-
renewable biomass using survey methods or government data or
default country specific fraction of non-renewable woody
biomass (fNRB) values available on the CDM website.10 .
= Net calorific value of the non-renewable woody biomass that is
substituted (IPCC default for wood fuel, 0.015 TJ/tonne, based
on the gross weight of the wood that is ‘air-dried’)
= Emission factor for the fossil fuels projected to be used for
substitution of non-renewable woody biomass by similar
consumers. Use a value of 81.6 t CO2/TJ11
Number of project devices of type i and batch j operating during
=
year y,
Number of days of utilization of the project device i and batch j
= during the year y

= Leakage emissions in the year y

10
Default values endorsed by designated national authorities and approved by the Board are available at
<http://cdm.unfccc.int/DNA/fNRB/index.html>.
11
This value represents the emission factor of the substitution fuels likely to be used by similar users, on a
weighted average basis. It is assumed that the mix of present and future fuels used would consist of a
solid fossil fuel (lowest in the ladder of fuel choices), a liquid fossil fuel (represents a progression over solid
fuel in the ladder of fuel use choices) and a gaseous fuel (represents a progression over liquid fuel in the
ladder of fuel use choices). Thus a 50 per cent weight is assigned to coal as the alternative solid fossil fuel
(96 t CO2/TJ) and a 25 per cent weight is assigned to both liquid and gaseous fuels (71.5 t CO 2/TJ for
kerosene and 63.0 t CO2/TJ for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

As detailed in paragraph 28 of the methodology AMS II.G, version 07.0, Leakage related to the
non-renewable woody biomass saved by the project activity shall be assessed based on ex post
surveys of users and the areas from which this woody biomass is sourced (using 90/30 precision
for a selection of samples). The potential source of leakage due to the use/diversion of non-
renewable woody biomass saved under the project activity by non-project households/
communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) users that previously used renewable energy
sources shall be considered. If this leakage assessment quantifies an increase in the use of non-
renewable woody biomass by the non-project households/ communities/Small and Medium
Enterprises (SMEs) users, that is attributable to the project activity, then Bold,i,j is adjusted to
account for the quantified leakage. Alternatively, By,savings,i,j is multiplied by a net to gross
adjustment factor of 0.95 to account for leakages, in which case surveys are not required
As detailed in para 30 of the methodology AMS II.G, version 07.0, Project activities switching from
baseline device using firewood to efficient project device using charcoal, will take into account the
leakage effects related to the charcoal production. As detailed in para 31 of the methodology AMS
II.G, version 07.0, a default value of 0.030 t CH4/t charcoal will be used in accordance with “AMS-
III.BG: Emission reduction through sustainable charcoal production and consumption”.

Value(s) applied [Number of cook stoves]
Measurement methods The Sales agreement will be stored in paper format as well as the same will be
and procedures: transferred to electronic database which will be maintained by the CME will
detail the number of project devices installed. Surveys will be conducted on a
representative sample of end-users taken from the CPA sales database to
determine the proportion of cook stoves still operating. The product of these two
parameters will determine the Number of project devices of type i operating in
year y.

Measured directly or based on a representative sample. Sampling standard


shall be used for determining the sample size to achieve 90/10 confidence
precision. A discount shall be applied based on the percentage of devices
operational as determined by the sample survey e.g. if survey shows that 10%
of the devices is non-operating, an adjustment factor of 0.9 shall be applied to
number of project devices commissioned in a particular batch. Separate
samples shall be taken for each batch.
Monitoring frequency: At least once every two years (biennial)
QA/QC procedures: Each SSC-CPA project implementer shall maintain a sales record to calculate
this parameter.The database is periodically checked by the CME for consistency
and accuracy. Each stove will have unique serial.
Purpose of data Calculation of baseline emissions
Additional comment: The installed ICS will also be monitored once every two years to determine if
they are still operating; those devices that have been replaced by an equivalent

Measurement methods
and procedures: This parameter should be monitored using one of the following methods:

1. If the pre-project devices are decommissioned and no longer used, its value
is 365 days. If both the project devices and pre-project devices are used
together, measurement campaigns shall be undertaken using data loggers such
as stove utilization monitors (SUMs) which can log the operation of all devices
(recording the situation of the device being used or not during any day ‘d’ of the
measurement campaign) in order to determine the average device utilization
intensity (to establish the relative share of the usage of the devices). The
measurement campaign shall be conducted in at least 10 randomly selected
participant households/communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
users of the project activity or the component project activity (CPA) for at least
90 days during the year y. If seasonal variation is observed, the average value
determined through the campaign shall be annualised taking into account
seasonal variation of device utilization.

2. Alternatively, surveys may be conducted if the use of data loggers to record


the continued operation of baseline devices is demonstrated to be not practical,
for example when the baseline device is the three stone fire. The surveys should
be designed to capture the cooking habits and stove usage of households in the
region, including quantification of use of baseline devices, by formulating
questions and/or collecting evidences to determine the frequency of usage of
both the project devices and baseline devices.

Monitoring frequency: Yearly

Purpose of data Baseline determination
Additional comment: - If equation (6) under option 3 (WBT) is used combined with direct measured of
Biomass new, then (parameter 2) may be assumed as 365 days
- when the data loggers are used, the days when only project devices or only
pre-project devices are used will be attributed accordingly. The days where both
devices have been used, if the data loggers are able to detect and record the
time each device has been used (e.g. in hours), the share in the total duration of
utilization will be used to attribute a fraction of this day to one or to the other
device. Alternatively, if the data loggers are not able to determine the duration of
the utilization, but only the situation of the device being on or off (i.e. used or not
used during that day), the share of 50:50 may be used.

clearly differentiate the quantity of woody biomass being used by each device.
In other words, if more than one device, or another device that consumes
woody biomass, are in use in project households/users, then the sample survey
needs to distinguish the quantity of biomass used by the project device and the

B.7.2. Description of the monitoring plan for a generic CPA


Sampling Methodology

Representative sampling will be undertaken that is designed in line with the requirements of the
AMS IIG methodology applied and the “Standard for sampling and surveys for CDM project
activities and programme of activities”. This sampling plan follows the recommended outline as
contained in “Guidelines for sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programme of
activities

Monitoring Parameters
Percentage of improved cookstoves that are still in use (retention rate of improved cookstoves)
Percentage of displaced traditional cookstoves that continue to be used (Continued-use rate of
displaced traditional cookstoves)
: Quantity of woody biomass used by project devices in tonnes per device of type
i.for batch j

: Efficiency of the project device i and batch j. implemented as part of the project activity.

To monitor the required parameters data will be collected from a statistically valid sample of ICS in the
database for the monitoring period, as per this sampling plan. The method of collecting data will be field
surveys and the frequency of data collection is as per the frequency defined for each parameter in the
above section. Data will be collected from the field surveys, entered in the database and included in the
monitoring report.

As per approved methodology AMS II.G, version 07, the following guidance is being used for the
representative sampling method:
“A statistically valid sample of the locations where the devices are deployed, with consideration, in
the sampling design, of occupancy and demographic differences can be used to determine
parameter values used to calculate emission reductions, as per the relevant requirements for
sampling in the “Standard for sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programmes of
Activities”. When biennial inspection is chosen a 95% confidence interval and a 10% margin of
error shall be achieved for the sampling parameter. On the other hand when the project proponent
chooses to inspect annually, a 90% confidence interval and a 10% margin of error shall be
achieved for the sampled parameters. In cases where survey results indicate that 90/10 precision
or 95/10 precision are not achieved, the lower bound of the 90% or 95% confidence interval of the

Version 05.0 Page 31 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
parameter value may be chosen as an alternative to repeating the survey efforts to achieve the
90/10 or 95/10 precision.”

Sample size will be chosen for a 95/10 precision (95% confidence interval and 10% margin of
error); in cases where survey results indicate that 90/10 precision is not achieved, the lower bound
of a 95% confidence interval of the parameter value may be chosen as an alternative to repeating
the survey efforts to achieve a 95/10 precision.

As per EB 86, “Guidelines for Sampling and Surveys for CDM Project Activities and Programme of
Activities”, version 4., the following Sampling plan has been developed:

As per para 3 of “Standard: Sampling and Surveys for CDM project activities and programme of
activities”, version 05,”The general requirements of sampling methods shall be applicable to PoAs
with any requirement specified in the applicable methodologies having precedence”.

As per approved methodology AMS II.G, version 07, the following guidance is being used for the
representative sampling method:
“When biennial inspection is chosen a 95% confidence interval and a 10% margin of error shall be
achieved for the sampling parameter. On the other hand when the project proponent chooses to
inspect annually, a 90% confidence interval and a 10% margin of error shall be achieved for the
sampled parameters. In cases where survey results indicate that 90/10 precision or 95/10 precision
are not achieved, the lower bound of the 90% or 95% confidence interval of the parameter value
may be chosen as an alternative to repeating the survey efforts to achieve the 90/10 or 95/10
precision.”

Additional requirement for PoAs as per sampling standard, version 5, para 21, EB 86 will be
followed:
In case a single sampling plan for more than one CPA is used, “parameter values shall be
estimated by sampling in accordance with the requirements in the applied methodology separately
and independently for each of the CPAs included in a PoA except when a single sampling plan
covering a group of CPAs is undertaken applying 95/10 confidence/precision for the sample size
calculation”.

Furthermore, as per para 37, Annex 38 of EB 55, “a request for issuance shall include all CPAs
which are included in the PoA”. Sampling may therefore be same across CPAs and hence a single
sampling plan shall be applied to reduce efforts.

Sampling Frame
The sampling frame refers to all the information in the database. The PoA is open to different CPA
Implementers and different models of ICS. As explained below, to take the different characteristics
of different CPA Implementer and ICS models and other factors that may affect estimates into
consideration, CPAs shall be either sampled separately and independently, or grouped together
under a single sampling plan across CPAs, in each case using strata that have unique
combinations of these factors.

(i) Target Population

The target population will be the total population served under the specific CPA or group of CPAs.

(ii) Sampling Method

Sampling will be conducted using simple random sampling techniques, and detailed calculations
are provided within the monitoring plan as per CDM guidelines “Sampling and surveys for CDM
project activities and programmes of activities”. Optionally, other sampling approaches may be

Version 05.0 Page 32 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
used in accordance with “Sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programmes of
activities” and Guideline for Sampling and Surveys for CDM Project Activities and Programme of
Activities, when sampling techniques or statistical analysis necessitates it.
(iii) Sample Size

The sample size will be calculated using the EB 86, “Guidelines for Sampling and Surveys for CDM
Project Activities and Programme of Activities”, version 04.0.

According to the “Standard for sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programme of
activities”, if there is more than one parameter to be estimated, then a sample size calculation
should be done for each of them. Then either the largest number for the sample size is chosen as
sampling effort with one common survey, or separate sampling efforts and surveys are undertaken
for each parameter.

Thus, there are different equations to calculate a required sample size for different situations.
Different equation that will be used, depends on the type of parameter of interest, that is either:
(a) A percentage –retention rate of improved cookstoves and continued-use rate of displaced
traditional cookstoves; or
(b) A numeric value –the mean value of operating efficiency of improved cookstove and/or Quantity
of woody biomass used by project devices in tonnes per device.

For all of the parameters 95% confidence is required that the margin of error in the estimate is not
more than ±10% in relative terms.

For a percentage –retention rate of improved cookstoves and continued-use rate of displaced
traditional cookstoves the equation that will be used

1.962 N×p(1-p)
n≥
(N-1)×0.12×p2+1.962 p(1-p)

Where:
N= sample size
N = Ny = Number of ICS in SSC CPA installed in year y = Total number of households/
communities/Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) users
p = our expected proportion ([proportion] assuming [proportion] of the installed (ICS) will be in use
and operating at the specified efficiency)
1.96= represents the 95% confidence required
0.1 = represents the 10% relative precision

Substituting the values in above equation gives the value of n = [Number of users to be sampled]
(rounded up)

For a numeric value –the mean value of operating efficiency of improved cookstove and/or
Quantity of woody biomass used by project devices in tonnes per device.

Where:
n = sample size
N = Ny = Number of ICS in SSC-CPA installed in year y
1.96 = represents the 95% confidence required
0.1 = represents the 10% relative precision
Mean = our expected mean

Version 05.0 Page 33 of 39


CDM-SSC-PoA-DD-FORM
SD = our expected standard deviation

Sample sizes will be sufficient to ensure that the precision of the sample means/proportions
are in accordance to the Sampling Frame established for the CPA within the PoA to estimate
emissions reductions. In cases where survey results indicate that desired precision is not
achieved, the lower bound of corresponding confidence interval of the parameter value may be
used as an alternative to repeating the survey. Alternatively, the survey may be expanded to
reach the required confidence/precision. The sampling methodology will be accordance with
the representative sampling methods provided by the methodology AMS–II.G and other CDM
sampling standard and guidelines as indicated along this section. There may be non-response
from the target population. Thus, over-sampling by 10% may be used to avoid non-response;
however, sampling may be ceased once required confidence/precision is met.

(iv) Survey and Data collection Method

The sample to be surveyed will be drawn randomly with a geographical spread within the project
boundary of the specific CPA xxx. A survey will be conducted through: physical on-site visit (face-
to-face). For the physical on-site visit (face-to-face interview), data is collected through hard-copy
questionnaires. The physically collecting the data and production of final data set will be done as
per the below protocol.

Training
The CME will conduct a training programme for the CPA DD project participant’s representative
and its nominated distributor or third party surveyor for survey framework and approach. Major
focus will be on understanding collection of data as per the survey questionnaire.

Data Collection
The survey team will collect the data as per the sampling method.

Data entry and storage

Level of supervision and guidance provided to staff, for example written instructions; The
standardized system used to initially enter data into a computer and produce a final dataset,
documenting steps taken to minimize the introduction of errors. There will be Systems in place to
ensure all collected data is processed.
The type of quality checks performed on data entered, for example range checks, inconsistency
checks, checking of subsamples of data by supervisors will be done. Clear guidelines will be done
on How errors are recorded, reported and the remedial action taken. Level of security and type of
backup processes to guarantee data integrity, for example methods to prevent fraud and
accidental deletion will be done.

Data Analysis

The data will be analysed for consolidation of findings.


The data from the survey will be analyzed
• Determine the mean value of the efficiency of the ICS that are still operating (ηnew)
• To determine number of project ICS that are still in operation

Report generation
A report will be prepared. The report should contain explicit statements, explanations or content
related to the following: (a) A suitable qualification of the data analyst; (b) The statistical design of
the survey, justification of its choice and the sample size used; (c) The statistical methods
employed to analyse the data and reasons for choosing these methods, which should cite official
or industry guidelines or other references where appropriate.

(i) Quality Assurance/Quality Control:

The overall monitoring and the implementation of the sampling plan will be co-ordinated by the
CME and CPA implementer. They will ensure successful monitoring of the emission reductions of
the proposed project during its crediting period. Furthermore, the survey of the representative
sample for the parameters will be carried out by the CPA implementer in conjecture with the CME.
The CPA implementer will undertake the efficiency tests for the representative samples of ICS
installed and in operation as per the requirement of methodology.

During the survey, in order to anticipate any low response rate and answers bias, 10%
oversampling will be applied over the determined sample size. The survey team will ensure that all
questionnaires are filled. To remedy the incomplete questionnaires, additional households/users
will be drawn randomly until the required number is met at per the sample size determined.

There might be changes of getting outliers while sampling. The following approach will be used to
identify and address outliers for the samples during monitoring. Outliers will be defined as those
data points with values greater than three standard deviations from the mean of the sample.

Data points identified as outliers according to the above analysis will be examined further to correct
for possible transcription and data entry errors, but will be omitted from the analysis if no such
administrative errors exist.

(ii) Analysis

The data from the survey will be analyzed


 Determine the mean value of the efficiency of the ICS that are still operating (ηnew)
 To determine number of project ICS that are still in operation

(a) Implementation plan:

Survey Implementation Schedule:

The survey for collecting the details of the number of ICS in operation will be conducted every year
and will be scheduled during the last month of the monitoring period.

The overall monitoring and the implementation of the sampling will be co-ordinated by the CME
and the management staff. They will ensure successful monitoring of the emission reductions of
the proposed project during its crediting period. Furthermore, the survey of the representative
sample for the parameters will be carried out by the distributor in conjecture with the CME. The
CME will employ third party agencies to undertake the efficiency tests for the representative
samples of ICS installed.

Target Population
The PoA targets below end-users which are categorized into one of the following groups based on
the characteristic of their fuel consumption patterns:
Households
Communities
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
Given that a baseline fuel consumption and stove efficiency is defined by the typical baseline fuel
consumption pattern at the end-user, baseline survey and/or historical data and literature will be
conducted for each SSC-CPA depending upon the target consumers in a given CPA.
Assessments, information used in previous CPAs may be used in subsequent CPAs against
conducting new assessments at each CPA level in case of absence of new data.

Emission reductions will be credited for the CPA target group only after appropriate project studies
or baseline studies have been conducted. Alternatively, adjustment factors may be applied to
existing baseline and project scenarios to determine baseline scenarios in the absence of a new
baseline or project scenario.
