About this book

Investment in carbon markets and renewable energy projects is leading the climate change business agenda. The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a vital part of the investment and business landscape as it allows some renewable energy project developers to take advantage of additional revenues in the form of emission reductions that can be sold to countries with emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. This emerging market has begun to show interesting trends and both massive opportunities for the brave and significant pitfalls for the uninformed.

This definitive guide to developing renewable energy CDM projects in the largest market on the doorstep of the United States is the only one if its kind and is a must-have for serious, successful project developers, investors and host countries wanting to take advantage of the great challenge and most compelling business opportunity of our time.
