CLIMATE EXTENDER

Participant ID: DK-1901-0124
Valid until: 24.01.2020

This certificate guarantees that the reported quantity of 4 tons CO2 has been saved in Gold Standard tested climate projects.

CLIMATE EXTENDER 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.

CLIMATE EXTENDER 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.

TOYOLA Cleaner cooking stoves

Ghana

In Ghana kochen viele Menschen mit Feuerholz und Holzkohle, wodurch hohe Treibhausgasemissionen entstehen. Die Luftverschmutzung in den Räumen führt ausserdem zu negativen Auswirkungen auf die Gesundheit, insbesondere bei den Frauen, die das Essen zubereiten. Dieses Projekt teilt effiziente Kochöfen aus, die weniger Holz benötigen und weniger Rauch erzeugen. Dadurch vermindert es Entwaldung und ermöglicht verbesserte Lebensbedingungen.

Kontext
Ghana ist der grösste Pro-Kopf-Verbraucher von Holzkohle in Westafrika – schätzungsweise 69% aller städtischen Haushalte nutzen diesen Brennstoff.  Alternativen wie Gasöfen sind zwar verfügbar, aber auch so teuer, dass ein Wechsel zu sauberer Energie schwierig wird. 

Projekt
Dieses Projekt ersetzt die kohlenstoffintensiven Kohletöfen durch brennstoffeffziente, isolierte Öfen, die so genannten Toyola-Kohleöfen. Diese Kohleöfen nutzen gewöhnliche Holzkohle, sind aber bis zu 33% effzienter und verringern die Menge an Holzkohle, die zum Kochen benötigt wird, um ein Vielfaches. Dies mindert auch Kohlendioxidemissionen und Entwaldung. 

Vorteile
Dieses Projekt verbessert auch die Lebensbedingungen der lokalen Bevölkerung. Durch die Nutzung effzienter Kochöfen müssen die Menschen weniger Geld für Brennstoff ausgeben und sind im geringeren Maße gesundheitsschädlichen Luftschadstoffen ausgesetzt. Darüber hinaus haben sie eine schnellere Kochmöglichkeit und es ergeben sich lokale Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten sowie zunehmende Sauberkeit und Komfort in den Häusern.

Toyola-Öfen werden zum Großteil aus Schrott hergestellt, der im Rahmen von Bauprojekten in ganz Ghana gesammelt wird. Das Projekt schafft Arbeitsplätze, fördert Recycling und reduziert Herstellungskosten.

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.

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.
