4) Cost (to the extent possible):

To the investment costs are referred the cost of the investment proper and the accumulated interest during the grace period, generally 2 years.

The AIJ/JI cost items are the costs for:

  • Technical assistance, a technical and administrative support from consultants, during the period from definition of the project till commissioning. These costs are paid by STEM.
  • Follow-up, an annual technical and economic follow-up by consultants, hired by STEM, of the operating results of the plant with the objective to improve on its techno-economic sustainability and its climate effect. The cost indicated is an average cost per project.
  • Reporting costs – i e costs in connection with the annual reporting of the project’s climate effects to UNFCCC. The cost indicated is an average cost per project.
  • Administration –Costs for seminars, handbooks, education (capacity building) and average costs of STEM staff per project.
  • Difference in interest rates. STEM applies for its loans generally an interest rate corresponding to 6-month STIBOR (Stockholm InterBank Rate, in April 1999 3,0 %). Assuming a normal lending rate of 7 % means that this loan is associated with a cost of 4 % in relation to normal lending rate.

Investment/instalment = the borrower’s possible own financing of the investment, followed by the borrower’s repayment of the loan.

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 Swedish side considers that the project meets the following objectives in the Latvian Energy Law:

- efficient use of energy resources;

  • creation and usage of energy efficient technologies, fuel/energy consuming and diagnostic equipment, construction and insulation materials; energy flow metering and control devices, automated energy consumption control systems;

Latvia became a Party of the United nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UN FCCC) in 1992.

In accordance with Kyoto Protocol to the UN FCCC on 10 December 1997, Latvia individually or jointly should ensure, that its aggregate anthropogenic CO2 equivalent emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs and SF6 in 2008 - 2012 should be 8% below the 1990 level.

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.)

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:

A reference scenario can be selected among an array of possible scenarios.

In the feasibility study and in this report has been chosen a reference scenario that 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/STEM is still one of the few sources to finance this type of investments for municipalities in Latvia The Swedish EAES Programme has thus helped to overcome a financial and also a technical barrier, as the technology was not sufficiently known on the local scene.

In hind-sight it can be considered probable that natural gas would have been chosen some period after the start-up time of the bio-fuelled boiler, had the bio.-fuelled boiler not been chosen.

2) Estimated emissions with the activity:

Description of the scenario, including methodologies applied:

Below comparison is based upon that the base-line scenario represents a status quo solution.
