EcoMetrix On – How CERs provide a competitive advantage under REIPPP (Dec 2012)
CDM revenues can allow a project to bid at a price that is between 9% and 27% lower than it would be able to do without a carbon credit revenue stream. Registering a REIPPP project under the CDM therefore becomes a must if a project wants to stand any chance in the competitive bidding process.

EcoMetrix On – Applying MAC curves as a strategic instrument to manage exposure (Nov 2012)
By developing a Marginal Abatement Cost (MAC) curve for a company’s activities the options to mitigate its Carbon Tax exposure become apparent. A MAC curve therefore represents a critical instrument in a company’s inventory to strategize, adapt and respond to the introduction of the carbon tax.

EcoMetrix On – Utilising South African CERs as off-sets under the carbon tax (Oct 2012)
From March 2013 South Africa’s main industrial sectors are envisaged to be exposed to a carbon tax of 120 ZAR/tCO2. Initially the tax will be reduced applying a tax free threshold and several ‘relieves’ that can accumulate to a maximum reduction of 90%. In addition, the tax burden can be reduced by using CERs as offsets. In practise this means that a local CDM project would be able to utilise and commercialise its CERs at a price of 120 ZAR/CER or more irrespective of global market developments.

EcoMetrix On – The post 2012 carbon market for CDM projects in South Africa (Sep 2012)
At COP17 parties agreed to a process that leading to new binding targets from either 2017 or 2020. In addition it was decided that the CDM infrastructure would remain operational until at least 2020. In the absence of a commitment period between the end of 2012 and 2020 CERs generated from CDM projects in South Africa will remain valuable and tradable into a range of domestic and regional markets.

Underground Coal Gasification – An expansion of the coal era?
The application of underground coal gasification would greatly increase the energy available from coal and is relatively cleaner when combined with CCS. However several barriers still exist to large scale commercial implementation.
