Fuel Switch from Gasoline to Ethanol in Flex-Fuel Vehicle Fleets, v1.0

This methodology calculates the GHG emission reductions from substituting ethanol in place of gasoline or gasoline blends in commercial fleets of flex-fuel vehicles. Projects must demonstrate credible historical fuel consumption data for the commercial fleets. Newly purchased flex-fuel vehicles may not be included. The flex-fuel vehicles must consume E100 ethanol for at least 95 percent of the fuel consumed per fleet.  Fuel consumption is monitored for each vehicle included within the fleets.

This methodology was open for public comment from 1 November 2010 until 30 November 2010. Public comments are closed.

Methodology for Carpooling

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions from individuals commuting to work by utilizing a carpooling program. Carpooling programs have the potential to reduce GHG emissions from the carbon intensive practice of solitary commutes. This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions achieved by a carpooling program using a smartphone application that is able to communicate with individual carpooler’s vehicles. This application directly tracks reductions in the number of solitary trips from participants in the carpooling program.

This methodology was open for public comment from 24 October 2013 until 23 November 2013. Public comments are closed.

Revisions to AM0090 to Include Conveyor Belt Transportation

This is a revision to AM0090, Modal Shift in Transportation of Cargo from Road Transportation to Water or Rail Transportation.

AM0090 is applicable only to projects that, in the baseline scenario, would deliver cargo by road transportation directly to the destination. This revision extends the applicability to a baseline scenario where cargo is delivered by off-highway transportation between multiple destinations.

This methodology was open for public comment from 5 June 2012 until 4 July 2012. Public comments are closed.

Transport Energy Efficiency from Lightweight Pallets, v1.0

This methodology calculates the avoided net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from project activities involving the use of pallets — the flat, portable structures that support goods during freight transport — lighter in weight than conventional alternatives. Projects must replace existing fleets of conventional wood pallets with lightweight pallets, or projects must establish a new fleet using lightweight pallets. Projects reduce fuel consumption and associated GHG emissions by reducing the total weight of goods transported.

Methodology for Determining GHG Emission Reductions Through Bicycle Sharing Projects

This methodology is applicable for project activities that reduce GHG emissions through the usage of public sharing-based bicycle projects which introduce an alternative mode of transportation to displace other, more carbon intensive modes.

Revisions to AMS-III.BC to Include Mobile Machinery, v1.0

This revision to CDM methodology AMS-III.BC, Emission reductions through improved efficiency of vehicle fleets, adds mobile machinery such as bulldozers, fork-lifters and road-building machines as eligible vehicles. The methodology quantifies GHG emission reductions from activities that improve the efficiency of mobile machinery through measures that may include, but are not limited to, anti-idling devices, tire-rolling resistance improvements, air-conditioning system improvements, low-viscosity oils, cab heaters and aerodynamic drag reduction measures.

This methodology was open for public comment from 10 March 2010 until 8 April 2011. Public comments are closed.
