Climate Focus carries out study on standardized crediting framework for scaling up energy access programs

Climate Focus is pleased to announce the publication of this study which proposes an innovative Standardized Crediting Framework (SCF) as a new approach to crediting emission reductions for energy access, which goes beyond the current Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Programme of Activities (PoA) model, has lower transaction costs and encourages private sector engagement in energy access investments. The concept has been developed to support the transition of the CDM project pipeline to the new regulatory environment of the Paris Agreement while enabling greater reform.
