Appropriate Equivalent

For the purposes of Type (i) small-scale project activities, "appropriate equivalent" of 15 megawatts is defined as MW(p), MW(e) or MW(th):

Definition of "appropriate equivalent" of 15 megawatts: the Board agreed that, whereas decision 17/CP.7, paragraph 6 (c) (i), refers to megawatts (MW), project proposals may refer to MW(p), MW(e) or MW(th).2 As MW(e) is the most common denomination, and MW(th) only refers to the production of heat which can also be derived from MW(e), the Board agreed to define MW as MW(e) and otherwise to apply an appropriate conversion factor (4/CMP.1, Annex II, paragraph 2(b)).
