Workshop on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM)
Promoting Low-Carbon Projects in Mongolia
The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the Environment Conservation Fund, Ministry of Environment and Tourism, organised a workshop on the Joint Crediting Mechanism for the private sector in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
The 10MW Solar Power Project in Darkhan City was presented at the workshop as an example of project under the JCM Financing Programme for Model Project. The project attracted a great deal of interest from the audience, especially from project developers working in solar power generation. By hearing first-hand experience of Solar Power International LLC, a Mongolian company representing the Darkhan solar power plant, from building an international consortium, arranging project operational structure, to following JCM procedures as well as domestic regulations, the audience obtained a helpful illustration of the works they may need to implement in the future. In addition, the JCM methodology for solar power installation and the means for companies to find potential Japanese partners, such as the IGES JCM Matchmaking Platform, were explained. The workshop also clarified the details regarding eligibility criteria of project, entities, sector, technologies, and selection process under the financial support programme. Waste recycling appeared as an attractive sector for the participants.
