3.2. Financial Additionality of Proposed Project

Estimate the financial additionality of the proposed project by determining the financial net present value of costs for the proposed project (NPVCA) and the financial net present value of costs for the baseline project (NPVCB) and taking the difference between the financial NPVC of the baseline project from the proposed project.

Estimated Financial Additionality = NPVCA - NPNCB

Note - This additionality of cost analysis assumes that the principal financial benefits of both the proposed and baseline projects are equivalent.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* - The period for which a baseline is valid should be equivalent to the period for which the underlying baseline project is in fact replaced by the JI/CDM project. However, this is not an operational definition as the underlying baseline project is counterfactual. The actual baseline conditions are dynamic and must be updated periodically (e.g., annually or every five years). In reality, the validity period for a defined baseline will be negotiated based on evidence provided to support the requested validity period.
