Retrofit (SSC)

Retrofitting, in the context of small-scale CDM project activities, is defined in the CDM Glossary of Terms (Version 03) as follows:

To modify existing industrial, commercial and residential facilities, automobiles, energy conversion systems etc., which are already in service using new, improved or more efficient parts and equipment developed or made available after the time of original manufacture or installation of the facility. The retrofit should also be consistent with the current guidance by the Board on the lifetime of plants and equipment (CDM Glossary of Terms, Version 03).
