3) Activity:

Item

Please fill in if applicable

General description:

Birzai is a middle-size town close to border for Latvia. There are two boiler plants which are connected to one network in Birzai. One of the boilerplants had two DE 16-14 oil-fired boilers. The annual energy production from this boilerplant was about 50 000 MWh.

Type of project:a)

conversion to renewable fuelas

Location (exact, e.g. city, region,

state):

Birzai town

Birzai Region

LITHUANIA

Activity starting date:

13. August 1993 (Letter of Intent)

Expected activity ending date:

31. December 2003

Stage of activity:b)

Complete

Lifetime of activity if different from ending date:c)

Technical data:d)

Conversion of a DE 16-14 boiler to the use of wood fuels through installation of a pre-furnace. Automatic fuel storage, wood chipper and flue gas cleaning are also included in the project. The output power after the conversion is around 6 MW and annual energy production about 35 000 MWh.

a) For example, using Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) classification: energy efficiency; renewable energy; fuel switching; forest preservation, restoration or reforestation; afforestation; fugitive gas capture; industrial processes; solvents; agriculture; waste disposal or bunker fuels.

b) Circle the appropriate option.

c) Methodological work will be required to define lifetime of activities.

d) Methodological work will be required to determine for each type of activity what the minimum data requirements are.

Describe briefly how costs are determined:

The investment proper is calculated to be 686.000 USD and technical support 138.000 USD.

The lifetime or the project is foreseen to be minimum 10 years (corresponding to the maturity period of the loan). The reference scenario is a status quo situation, assuming that no invest-ment would have been made for the replaced technology. The following definitions are used:

Cost for the project in year 0:

Costs for investment (= loan from NUTEK) and technical assistance (= grant from NUTEK) are summarized over the investment period (up to the time for commissioning) and stated for year 0, being the year of the date for commissioning.

Cost for the project in consequtive years:

Costs (i e possible costs for investment and costs of AIJ component character) are shown per calender year. Year 1 represents part of the calender year after the date of commissioning.

AIJ component in year 0:

The costs for technical assistance up to commissioning have a clear character of AIJ component. The costs for the investment can also be maintained to have the an AIJ character, as the loan is a cost for the host country, and as the loan represents a business risk for the financier, NUTEK.

AIJ component in consequtive years:

Encompasses in this report only one cost item - Costs for follow-up after the date of commissioning (information exchange to secure a high utilisation of the investment + costs for measuring and reporting to FCCC). The cost for follow-up for the years up to and including 1996 is calculated by dividing NUTEKs total costs for follow-up by the total years of operation of all NUTEK-financed projects.

Other cost items, like difference between a market interest rate and the favourable interest rate (STIBOR) which NUTEK applies and financial risk, may be considered at the next reporting occasion.

US $ per avoided ton of CO2 equivalent equals:

- at year 0 the cost of the project/AIJ component cost divided by the projected decrease in CO2 emission over the 10 year lifetime of the project

- for consequtive years the cost of the project/AIJ component divided by actual figure for decrease of CO2 emission for each of the years 1 - 10.

5) Mutually agreed assessment procedures:

Describe the procedures, including name of organizations involveda):

It is intended that upon agreement with a central Lithuanian authority on reporting of JI-projects, this authority will assign a local organisation, which will be involved in the evaluation of the climate effects of this project. After an initial work in cooperation with NUTEKís assigned consultant, this local organisation will take the main responsibility the continued measuring for JI-reporting.

a) Please ensure that detailed contact information for all organizations mentioned is reported under

section A.2 above.

B. Governmental acceptance, approval or endorsement

Bearing in mind that all activities implemented jointly under this pilot phase require prior acceptance, approval or endorsement by the Governments of the Parties participating in these activities, which shall be shown as follows:

(a) In the case of joint reporting, the report is submitted by the designated national authority of one participating Party with the concurrence of all other participating Parties as evidenced by attached letters issued by the relevant national authorities;

(b) In the case of separate reporting, the reports are submitted separately by the designated national authority of each and every participating Party. Information will only be compiled once reports have been received from all participating Parties.

1) For the activity:

* First report and joint reporting

2) This report is a joint report:

Yes,

3) General short comment by the government(s) if applicable:

Cf. Annex II, section B

C. Compatibility with and supportiveness of national economic development and socio economic and environment priorities and strategies

Describe (to the extent possible) how the activity is compatible with and supportive of national economic development and socio economic and environment priorities and strategies

The project meets with a o the following objectives in the Lithuanian energy sector:

- to reduce the energy intensity

- to create and improve energy infrastructure based on indigenous energy resources

- to utilize the existing energy production capacity efficiently

- to develop cooperation between Baltic, Nordic and other Central European countries

D. Benefits derived from the activities implemented jointly project

Whenever possible, quantitative information should be provided. Failing that, a qualitative description should be given. If quantitative information becomes available, it could be submitted using the update(s). (If the amount of quantative information is too large, the source could be indicated.)

Item

Annual emissions reduction

11400 ton CO2

174 ton SO2

8.1 ton NOx

Lower pollution.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of environmental benefits?

Yes

Describe social/cultural benefits in detail:

More stable energy supply.

Improved working conditions, increased motivation

Improved trade balance

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of social benefits?

Yes

Describe economic benefits in detail:

Decreased energy costs about 3 USD/MWh

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of economic benefits?

Yes

E. Calculation of the contribution of activities implemented jointly projects that bring about real, measurable and long-term environmental benefits related to the mitigation of climate change that would not have occurred in the absence of such activities

1) Estimated emissions without the activity (project baseline):

Description of the baseline or reference scenario, including methodologies applied:

The reference scenario represents at status quo situation. The decrease in energy consumption that followed after 1990 is assumed to have reached full impact, meaning a stable heat consumption over the life-time of the project. Loan from NUTEK is so far one of the very few sources to finance this type of investments for municipalities in Lithuania. As this would imply that an alternative investment would not have taken place, neither the consequence of another investment, nor the consequence of an alternative technical solutions are considered.

2) Estimated emissions with the activity:

Description of the scenario, including methodologies applied:

Cf. E.1. above.
