The new unit, called block B3, will have an installed capacity of 600 MWe with net efficiency of 40.8%, which is significantly higher than 33.5% efficiency of a conventional lignite power plant in Serbia. The project will introduce a super-critical steam power generation technology.


De-risking Renewable Energy NAMA for the Nigerian Power Sector +The NAMA has four components: * Policy and institutional framework for private investment in on-grid renewable power generation. * Financial de-risking instruments for private investment in on-grid renewable power generation. * Grid management to absorb intermittent but predictable renewable energy. * First commercial on-grid RE projects, with 100 MW of additional RE-based power generation capacity. The GEF has approved a project, in April 2016, to support the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) in the development and implementation of this RE NAMA for the Nigerian Power Sector.
Decentralized PV NAMA +The essential component of the financial mechanism is a net metering system that allows residential customers to be credited for electricity fed into the grid from their rooftop PV installations. In addition, an investment subsidy for consumers for 2015-2017, and a partial solar PV exemption from VAT for 2018-2021, will help fund consumers' purchase of solar installations. A credit line funded by international donors will be offered to local partner banks, to increase their ability to make loans for solar PV purchases. Generally, a problem here is the lack of implication of the banking sector. The sector is not involved enough in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
Demand-side energy efficiency programme for water pumping stations +The Water Authority of Jordan is the largest electricity consumer in the country, using about 15% of Jordan's national energy production. The IEE programme is a sector wide programme to increase energy efficiency for water infrastructure with the objective to reduce the specific energy consumption per m3 of produced water targeting pumping facilities, well-fields, booster stations, the water supply network and other water infrastructure in the country. The IEE Programme is directly aiming at energy savings and GHG emission reduction in the different Governorate of the Kingdom together with the Jordanian public water companies and key stakeholders. Jordan seeks support for further preparation of this NAMA, as well as for implementation of it. The scope of the preparation is for an expert to prepare a NAMA proposal and to generate funds for implementation. Activities in the implementation phase will include technical improvements of the water infrastructure.

The NAMA is split into four phases: * Design of the overall NAMA; * Design of a pilot programme; * Implementation of pilot programme; * Implementation of fuel scale programme.


E-mobility readiness plan +This NAMA will undertake activities along 3 pillars: * Market creation * Charging infrastructure * Research and development The pillars work together to help reach the overall target. Cross-cutting activities support the pillars, including communication and public diffusion activities and a monitoring, reporting and verification framework. The NAMA is planned in two phases with the first starting in 2012 and the second in 2015. The first phase will be a learning phase with three pilots to demonstrate the technology and to prepare several studies to support the private and public sectors in laying the groundwork for an electric vehicle market and a suitable charging infrastructure to supply it. The second phase will seek a scale up of market-based and regulatory instruments to achieve a penetration of electric vehicles of approximately 1% of the vehicle fleet by 2020.
Eco-competitive Livestock sector +The Livestock Farms NAMA proposed incorporates within its scope beef, dairy and double purpose livestock activities in farms, within the entirety of the national territory dedicated to this economic activity. The NAMA has the goal to implement mitigation measures in 80% of applicable farms nationally in a fifteen-year period through two stages: 1. Pilot phase (until 2021) - implementation of measures in 10% (approx 4000) of farms. 2. Second stage (until 2028) - Up-scaled implementation of measures to 80% of farms, adoption of MRV system, and strengthening of capacities. Measures: > Improved fertilization plans > Rotational grazing / live fences: separating the pasture area to allow for rotating the herds to the next space at least every two or three days allows the pastures to grow healthier, and the soils to capture more carbon. Additionally, the separation of the areas will be done with live fences, which consist of live trees used as the pillars for wired fences, allowing for the fences themselves to be a source of carbon capture. > Improvement of pastures: By improving the pasture species, not only will more carbon be captured by the pastures themselves and the soils as their roots are bigger, but also the diets of the herds are improved. These improved diets in turn reduce enteric fermentation, increase productivity and increase reproduction rates. success of improved pastures increases when accompanied by rotational grazing. > Silvopastoral systems: These involve the planting of trees within the pasture areas to provide shadow for the herds and in turn, capture carbon. They also imply a growth of forested areas and arborization (forest plantations, fruit trees, etc.) within the farms. > Other feasible and relevant measures such as Manure Management and Genetics, as well as wider supply chain activities including distribution, slaughterhouses and others, are being included within the Livestock LcDs and their inclusion within this nAMA framework is being analysed for initial or future stages
Efficient Biomass Stove Development, Dissemination and Commercialisation +It is estimated that more than 6 million tonnes of wood fuel are consumed annually when the sustainable output of natural forests is 4.6 million tonnes translating to a loss of 330 000 hectares of forest area or over 60 million trees per year. Over-exploitation of wood resources has resulted in destruction of carbon sinks, severe land degradation, soil erosion and siltation of rivers and dams. The programme aims to: (1) reduce loss of woodlands which are carbon sinks that help to capture carbon; (2) create awareness of advantages of use of efficient cook stoves as compared to open fire places; (3) train local artisans and builders in the construction of efficient cook stoves. The preparation of the NAMA lasts 10 months.
Efficient Use of Fuel and Alternative Fuels in Indigenous and Rural Communities +This NAMA is the result of the third call for project proposals of the NAMA Facility. According to population growth statistics for the next ten years, it is estimated that there will be an average increase of 65,000 new families per year that will use firewood as their main source of energy. As a result the country has set up a dedicated Firewood Commission to implement the National Firewood Strategy. A respective action plan proposes: (i) to enhance access to efficient technologies, (ii) to increase demand, and (iii) to promote an enabling environment for sustainable and efficient firewood use. Enhanced coordination and consolidation of national and international support is required to achieve scalability and long-term sustainability in the implementation of clean cooking technologies, and for strengthening participatory governance to implement the National Firewood Strategy, which is part of Guatemala’s INDC.

Enabling Distributed Solar Power in the Philippines +The Philippines’ energy sector is heavily reliant on fossil fuels, and is the largest contributor to national GHG emissions. The Distributed Solar Power NAMA Support Project is embedded in the Philippines’ Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), which targets a 70% reduction of GHG emissions below business as usual (projected from 2000) by 2030 and identifies the energy, transport, waste, forestry, and industrial sectors as key contributors to reaching this goal. Barriers for higher penetration levels of distributed generation photovoltaic or self-supply include banks and leasing companies being reluctant to offer reasonably priced, reasonably termed, standardized, financing products due to perceived market and technology risks, and the perception that the market is too small, in particularly outside the Metro Manila. Planned activities include: * streamlining the permitting process * accrediting installers * creating a technology certification program * supporting the development of an initial pipeline of projects to help low grid-impact projects to come online * building the financial sector capacity to evaluate distributed PV projects and bring a variety of financing options for DG PV customers. The United Kingdom and Germany have pre-selected 7 NAMA Support Projects, including this NAMA in the Philippines, from the NAMA Facility’s 4th Call. These projects will receive funding by Germany and the UK of up to € 60 million to prepare their preparation development phase. Decisions on funding for implementation will be taken after the assessment of these proposals.
Energy Efficiency Improvement in the Tea and Coffee Sector in Rwanda +This Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) targets mitigation through the promotion of energy efficiency activities in the Tea and Coffee sector in Rwanda based on specific incentives and demonstration projects. Both industries are private sector based, and the promotion of energy efficiency will focus on energy intensive activities in the tea and coffee industry pertaining to thermal energy and electrical energy requirements, namely roasting, drying, processing and packaging. Envisioned actions under the NAMA are: -demonstration of selected energy efficient technologies in existing production -establish an energy efficiency standards for all new factories -promote international eco-labeling -promote energy management, auditing and reporting and national best practice sharing The tea and coffee sector is currently private sector driven, and consists of ‘estates’ or industrial blocs (plantations integrated to a processing unit), tea/coffee grower cooperatives (for labourers), tea/coffee growers association (for owners), and small holders.
Energy Efficiency Improvements in Public Buildings +The NAMA involves re-furbishment of 23 schools and 26 hospitals throughout Serbia. The NAMA will contribute to climate change mitigation as re-furbished Public buildings will use less energy and consequent-ly emit less CO2 for about 8,326 tones/annually during their life cycle that would be emitted in absence of the mitigation action
