Participant ID: DE-2032-0416
Valid until: 16.04.2020

This certificate guarantees that the reported quantity of 299 tons CO2 has been saved in Gold Standard tested climate projects.

BUSSE Design+Engineering GmbH has acquired shares (certificates) in climate protection projects corresponding to the calculated volume of CO2 and therefore plays a transparent part in the realisation of the projects. This ensures that the company compensates for its own CO2 emissions, and thus scales back the rise in global warming.

The projects have been certified, and the issue and closure of the certificates is registered transparently.

BUSSE Design+Engineering GmbH is therefore a voluntary participant in emissions trading, and thus makes a contribution to maintaining a viable environment by reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases. The holder of this certificate makes a sustainable contribution to the commitment to tackle global warming.

Infravest Wind Power CHANGBIN AND TAICHUNG

TAIWAN

Harnessing the energy of coastal winds to power Taiwan communities
These two wind farms help drive Taiwan’s renewable energy expansion and pave the way for sustainable development. Each year, this project prevents over 320.000 tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere.
 

The Context
Despite the abundant coastal winds along its shoreline, Taiwan remains heavily reliant on fossil fuels, which make up over 75 percent of its total installed electricity capacity. Shifting towards sustainable energy is vital for both Taiwan’s national security, and for its economic and environmental prosperity.

The Project
This project harnesses the plentiful supply of wind energy along Taiwan’s coast near Taichung in the west and Changbin in the east. The wind farms consist of 62 wind turbines, and generate over 480.000 MWh of clean power each year which is supplied to the local electricity grid.

The Benefits
In addition to contributing to global climate change mitigation, this project is engaged in several nature preservation enterprises such as regular beach clean ups and guided tours that raise awareness about climate change, pollution and other environmental issues. The project has also led to the forestation of 2.400 m2 of land, encouraging local biodiversity.

Your investment in the project supports the energy transition and sustainable development goals in Taiwan.

BACHU BIOMASS CHINA

CHINA

Generating sustainable electricity for western China’s rural communities
This project involves local farmers who collect cotton stalks and burn them to generate carbon neutral power. This activity both creates sustainable electricity and creates an additional income stream for rural people in the project area, boosting the local economy.

The Context 

The Bachu Biomass project is located near the city of Kashgar in Xinjiang province on the historic Northern Silk Road at China’s westernmost border. The region’s rich culture has a strong tradition of trade and transfer and cotton growing for the textile industry is the region’s main economic pillar. However, power generation in the area is almost exclusively coal- fired and produces high levels of greenhouse gas emissions. 

The Project 

This project provides the province with renewable energy and simultaneously creates economic benefits for local farmers. The cotton stalks collected by farmers are sold to the power plant, which combusts this surplus biomass in a state-of-the-art straw-fired boiler that generates thermal energy at a capacity of 12 MW. This energy is then supplied to the local electrical grid. This process creates ash as a waste product, which is then given back to the farmers free of charge as crop fertiliser. 

The Benefits 

Prior to the implementation of the project, cotton stalks were considered as waste product that was burned open air in the fields. Now, it is collected and transformed into carbon neutral energy that powers the wider region, strengthening the regional grid against power failures. The project also strengthens local economies by creating jobs, supplementing incomes and providing free fertiliser to increase crop yields. In addition, the project owner provides scholarships to families in need and financial support for local cultural activities.

Half the jobs created by the project are filled by people from local ethnic minorities, while a quarter of total project staff are women.

Solar Thermal Power Plant by Godawari 50MW

India

Description of the project
Godawari Green Energy Limited is implementing a new 50 MW large-scale grid connected solar thermal power project (“Project activity”) in Jaisalmer district, Rajasthan, India. Project activity comprises of state-of-the-art, environment friendly, solar thermal power generation using parabolic trough technology. Project activity comes under the purview of large-scale, solar thermal power technology based project to be implemented in India.

Electricity generated from the project activity will be sent to the Combined Regional grid of India. As a result of commissioning, the gross electricity generation in the project activity is 130,263 MWh/year and the auxiliary electricity consumption in the project activity is 11,397MWh/year. Accordingly this project activity is expected to supply 118,866 MWh net electricity to the grid per year and abates 1,131,600 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide emissions during the crediting period.

Contribution to the Sustainable Development
The project proponent commits 2% of CERs equivalent towards the welfare of local community leading to sustainable development. Contribution of project activities to the sustainable development is discussed below.

Social well-being
a) Project activity would create employment opportunities during construction and operation stages. Such opportunities lead to higher income levels leading to removal of social disparities prevalent in Jaisalmer district in Rajasthan.
b) As the project activity is located in rural areas of combined regional grid, project activity would help in improvement of necessary basic infrastructure, such as roads.

Economic well-being
a)  The project activity would promote the application of solar energy based power generation investment which is a significant investment in a green field project in the region.
b)  Encourage investors to make similar investments in promoting renewable power generation technologies.

Environmental well-being
a)  Project activity has no negative environmental impact as relies on natural solar radiation for power generation technology.
b)  Energy generated by the project activity leads to reduced emission intensity in Combined regional grid which otherwise would have generated from fossil fuel.

Technological well-being
a)  Technology to be used in the project activity would be robust, State-of-the-Art, first-of- its-kind thermal solar power generation technology.
b)  Project activity promotes environmentally safe and sound technology.
