Methodology Idea Note

Development ID#


Sectoral Scope

7. Transport

CDM methodology AMS-III.C. (external) quantifies GHG emission reductions from activities that introduce new electric and/or hybrid vehicles that displace the use of fossil fuel vehicles in passenger and freight transportation. The proposed revision expands the scope of the methodology to include electric mobile machinery, such as building and construction machines, as eligible vehicles. The extension will only be for full electric mobile machinery. The proposed methodology is globally applicable.

Summary of Development:

The methodology idea note was submitted by Grutter Consulting AG and ZEROCA (external), and is currently at “Step 1: Methodology Idea Note Submission” of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, v4.4 (PDF).
