South Pole, an institution that develops and implements comprehensive emission reduction projects and strategies that turn climate action into long-term business opportunities for companies, governments, and organizations around the world has opened applications for South Pole‘s Carbon Asset Development Program for the Q2 2023 cycle.
There has been an increased interest in carbon credits from corporates and individuals looking to offset their carbon footprint.
Innovative start-ups and companies in sustainable technology and clean energy solutions, community water systems, and those interested in developing carbon credit projects are welcome to apply.
South Pole is the leading global carbon project developer and climate solutions, provider. We connect the projects we manage to our broad range of buyers across the globe who are increasingly interested to purchase credits, certificates, and offsets as part of their voluntary corporate climate pledge
South Pole is also seeking to source energy attribute certificates, commonly known as renewable energy certificates (RECs), from small-scale distributed solar assets from across Africa.
This is for the D-REC Initiative scheme, a new program aiming to increase revenues for distributed solar developers. You can find out more about D-RECs here.
Specifically, South Pole is currently seeking eligible projects from Ghana, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon and Angola
Projects of interest are small-scale solar projects, typically from 50 Wp up to 1 MWp in size, and include:
To be eligible, your project should have access to the electricity generation data from your project, ideally via remote monitoring.
Additionally, you must have ownership of the environmental attributes of your project and not be monetizing your project via any other environment.
If this sounds interesting apply by June 1st. All the best!
