Green Washing dirty hydro! CDM

The Clean Development Mechanism which relies on Carbon Credits to fund/subsidise hydropower projects as ‘ecologically friendly’ or ‘clean’ energy projects in Himachal has been widely critiqued in the state and nationally by climate change activists/ environmentalists. In Himachal the state government policy to support CDM for Hydropower projects is severely problematic and several projects are now applying for carbon credits to garner more profits under the CDM.
