Major Global Risk Global Climate Change • Scientists believe that the earth’s atmosphere is warming and that this is partly caused by human-induced release of carbon dioxide and related warming gases into the atmosphere from activities basic to human survival, ie combustion of fossil fuels for energy, transport and industry, from agriculture, land use and • The objective of the Rio Climate Convention (UNFCCC) is to reduce concentrations of greenhouse gases to a level required to prevent “dangerous” warming • What is “dangerous”? Still undefined. Warming is thought to be impacted by both the “stock” of Gh. Gs in atmosphere as well as the “rate” of temperature change
Assessing the Risk Impacts of Climate Change • Many scientists believe that global warming is underway • Although industrialized countries have emitted the most historically, the greatest impacts of warming will fall on those least able to adapt: the poor in the poorest countries and on already stressed ecosystems • Expected impacts include increased likelihood of: extreme weather events; melting of polar caps leading to a rise in sea levels impacting coastal development; ocean warming; changes in hydrological patterns; increased desertification; increase in infectious diseases • Likely to add stresses on water resources, food security, human health and infrastructure and constrain development in Africa
Complex Risk with Large Stakes • Climate change: Global, Inter-generational equity issue • Industrial countries are historically responsible for causing the Earth’s climate to change, but poor people in developing countries are most vulnerable • Today’s development choices will affect future generations • Risk can be ASSESSED Assessment can use the best available science to help assess the risk of climate change as it can potentially impact human loss, biodiversity, natural resources, sectors, entire economies or regions • Risk can be QUANTIFIED Various Tools can be employed, e. g. • Expected Value = Probability of Event X Loss from Event • Or, Monte Carlo Simulation • Tools presume reliable, relevant data exists or can be obtained
Managing Risk • If deemed substantial, Risk can be MANAGED in a manner that is flexible, efficient and creates value • Climate Change: A complex Risk – Assessing the Risk: Global, national & local levels – Vulnerability: people, ecosystems, commodity prices, growth – Mitigating the Risk: UNFCCC, KP, carbon finance – Adapting to the Risk: Ecosystems, Institutions, society
Managing Climate Risk Response to Climate Change • 1992 UNFCCC Rio Climate Convention – Mitigating the Risk that Climate Change Will Occur – Adapting to minimize the impacts of climate change • 1997 Kyoto Protocol requires Industrialized countries to reduce emissions an average of 5. 2% below 1990 levels – In some countries, emissions are up by 30% since 1990. – How would such countries reduce emissions by more than 1/3 by 2012 • Shut down production by 1/3? • Mandatory energy efficiency at any cost? • Off-shore industrial jobs? • Tax all energy consumption? – In a globalized world economy this becomes an issue of trade competitiveness, especially for industrial sectors – This creates the case for flexible mechanisms including CDM
Why a Carbon Market? • Regulation creates constraints on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of governments, firms (e. g. Kyoto Protocol obligates industrial Parties to reduce emissions by avg 5 % below their 1990 emissions over 2008 -12) • Since GHGs mix in the atmosphere, it does not matter where emissions are reduced • Compliance with regulation can be achieved through in-house (“make”) or flexibly through purchase (“buy”) “GHG commodities”, giving rise to the Carbon Market
The Kyoto Protocol Annex B Non-Annex B • Assigns GHG emission targets to Annex B countries between 2008 and 2012 • 3 Flexibility Mechanisms - Emissions Allowance Market - Joint Implementation - Clean Development Mechanism
EU Emissions Trading Scheme • Caps over 40% of EU CO 2 emissions • 2 phases : 05 -07 and 08 -12 • JI and CDM authorized… • But NOT LULUCF (review in 2006)
Methodology • Limited information on carbon transactions is publicly available • This study is based on material provided by Evolution Markets LLC, Natsource LLC, and on interviews with many market players • Database of 487 project-based transactions (signed or advanced stage of negotiation) + aggregated data on allowance markets
Allowance Markets Exploding (in million t. CO e) 2 (Jan. -March)
Volume Traded Through Projects: Growing (in million t. CO e) 2 (Jan-Apr)
Main Buyers: European Governments and Firms In percent of volume purchased From Jan. 04 to Apr. 05
Supply Concentrated in Middle-Income Countries In percent of volume sold from January 2004 to April 2005
Non-CO 2 Dominate In percent of volume purchased from Jan. 04 to Apr. 05
Total Value of Contracts over 1 b$ (data in million U. S. $, nominal) (Jan-Apr)
Prices Depend on Risks (weighted average prices from Jan. 2004 to April 2005 in U. S. $ per metric tonne of CO 2 e)
Insights on Price Differential • Large price differential: – EU Allowances: 7 up to 27 euros / t. CO 2 e (spot and forward contracts) – Project-based: 3 to 8+ dollars / t. CO 2 e (forward contracts on expected CERs) • Allowances and project-based contracts have very different risk profiles: – Project risks: high in CDM, none in EUAs – Regulatory risks: high in CDM, none in EUAs – Delivery risks: higher in CDM; both actual delivery and timing of delivery
Outlook • The market has responded to regulatory signals – now a real compliance market • Volumes should increase rapidly for both project and allowance segments…. . • … although important uncertainties still need to be addressed • Overall supply / demand picture (e. g. under Kyoto Protocol) is still unclear: – How much volume will JI/CDM deliver? Issue of projects lead-time and when? – How many allowances will Russia and Ukraine bring to market? – What happens after 2012?
Strategic Issues in CDM Market Development Potentially Competing Interests • CDM needs to deliver high volumes to keep cost of Kyoto compliance affordable • Developing country government preferences going into 2 nd Commitment Period negotiations is that CDM helps modernize and de-carbonize infrastructure • “Sustainability” concerns constrains asset choice in many OECD governments, and some corporations Market Inflection Points to Watch • Post-2012 market signal by EU and/or KP Parties on long lead time assets • Second phase ETS review of sequestration/ LULUCF assets
The World Bank’s Objectives • Contribute to Sustainable Development – Support Developing Countries To Maximize Gains from Carbon Finance – Add Value to CDM Projects, e. g. sustainable development opportunities • Help Catalyze the Carbon Market – Develop new markets, sectors for carbon finance to provide liquidity to the Market – Add Value to Project Developers: Reduce Risks, Buy VERs and CERs; Provide upfront resources for project preparation and upfront financing – Build Capacity in Client Countries
Case Study: Biomass Cogeneration • This case combines information about two potential bagasse cogeneration projects in Uganda as an illustration • All numbers are fictional
Case Study: Generic Biomass Project • Sugar Company in Uganda; Commercially-oriented management and sugar production; secures cane from own estate and from out-growers • Currently generating 3 MW electricity for own production and selling 6 MW to grid for 6 peak hours a day; no carbon • Proposing to expand generation: negotiating to sell 6 MW (from above capacity) to grid for additional 12 hours a day and an additional 6 MW to sell for 18 hours a day • Additional 1 MW to be generated and distributed to rural population on and around estate, including out-growers. • Case Question: Is there a carbon opportunity here?
Q 1: Is there a baseline? • • • Uganda, with about 5% annual economic growth, has about 300 MW of installed hydro capacity Due to variable rainfall, approximately 200 MW worth of output has been generated over the past 2 to 3 years, resulting in rolling black-outs in Uganda. A new 51 MW diesel generating facility has been commissioned for the grid Applying Combined Margin approach (Average of Operating & Built Margins) Operating Margin (EF of grid minus hydro and renewables: EF of 51 MW diesel = 0. 7 tonnes/Mw. H) • Built Margin (EF of 20% of newest output added to the grid): EF of diesel again or. 0. 7 • • • Combined Margin = (0. 7 + 0. 7)/2 = 0. 7 Baseline exists at 0. 7 tonnes/Mw. H for Grid Sales For off-grid sales, a survey of kerosene and diesel use in rural Uganda is used. It is estimated that rural residents typically consume electricity for lighting etc from highly inefficient carbon-intensive fuels. Baseline emissions estimated at 1. 2 tonnes/Mw. H.
Q 1: Is there a Project? • Sugar Company to provide: – 6 MW for 12 hours a day for 300 days to grid = 21, 600 Mw. H * 0. 7 = 15, 120 t – 6 MW for 18 hours a day for 300 days to grid = 32, 400 Mw. H * 0. 7 = 22, 680 t – 1 MW for 18 hours a day for 300 days off-grid = 5, 400 Mw. H *1. 2 = 6, 480 • • Estimated ERs from project = 44, 280 t This is below CDCF threshold of 50, 000 annually Might there be some potential for ethanol production - biofuel? Might the sugar factory be in a position to generate more electricity?
Q 3: Is there a Likely Successful CDCF Project? • Do the project economics work? – – – • Is the project sponsor strong? – – • Do No Wrong: Meet WB Env/social safeguards Community Benefits – • Track record of sponsor, including credit-worthiness, financial health and direction Experience in doing projects, raising funds, getting clearances, implementing investments, making things happen Social & Environmental Safeguards – • Investment Costs (Can they be limited considering this is not a greenfield development? ) Likelihood of a Power Purchase Agreement from the UETCL? What is the tariff likely? Given potential for rural generation, is there a potential grant or subsidy likely from Rural Electricity Agency? How quickly can that be accessed? How much additional leverage is possible from Carbon finance? Are these together sufficient to generate a return so that a bank can feel confident to lend to the Project? Do some Good: Benefit the local community, e. g. rural electricity access; contribution to Out-growers Fund etc. Strong, Efficient DNA – Timely clearances
IF these come together in a timely and cost-effective fashion, THEN we have a successful CDCF project! www. carbonfinance. org
