Renewable Energies & Energy Efficiency

Energy Changes offers an inter-disciplinary pool of technical, financial, and organizational energy know-how. We are active in energy consultancy and project development – from a single PV installation to national energy policy development.

CAR - ODS Destruction, Mexico
Kunde: 
O.S.L. OEKOSERVICES Luxembourgh
Project type: 
U.S. Climate Action Reserve
Land: 
Mexico
Methodik: 
CAR, Article 5 Project Protocol
  • Consulting and guidance during the individual CAR project process steps
  • Elaboration of Monitoring and Operation Plan (MOP) – plan of the monitoring, controlling, recording and reporting activities of ODS collection, transport and final destruction in order to fulfil all procedural requirements of the CAR.
  • Optimization of the monitoring operations, data recording and management

The client´s joint venture “Ecofrigo” is operating a de-manufacturing plant of the end-of-life refrigeration appliances in Celaya, state Guanajuato, Mexico. Thanks to an advanced European technology the de-manufacturing process has been supplemented by the refrigeration gasses extraction step.The refrigeration gases, especially those used in the old appliances, are so called “freons” (chlorfluorcarbons). They have a strong adverse effect on the Earth´s ozone layer and therefore are named as the ozone depleting substance (ODS). Moreover, they are very potent greenhouse gases, too.

JI - Windpark Casimcea, Romania

JI - Windpark Casimcea, Romania
Kunde: 
Verbund Renewable Power
Project type: 
JI
Land: 
Romania
Methodik: 
ACM0002

JI project development, including:

  • PIN, Letter of Endorsement
  • PDD drafting
  • Support of Determination
  • Letter of Approval
  • Development of the monitoring plan
  • Drafting of the monitoring report
  • Support of Verification

The wind farm Casimcea consists of 4 clusters of wind turbines located around the village Casimcea in eastern Romania. Once fully implemented, the 77 turbines with a total capacity of 201 MW will annually generate approximately 560 GWh of emission free electricity. This will replace electricity from fossil fuel based power plants in the Romanian grid and reduce up to 520,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year

CDM - CFL distribution, Ecuador

CDM - CFL distribution, Ecuador
Kunde: 
Ministry of Energy, Ecuador
Project type: 
CDM
Land: 
Ecuador
Methodik: 
AM0046

CDM Project management including:

  • Project evaluation
  • PDD development
  • Validation support
  • Preparation and support of Monitoring
  • CER transaction services

The goverment of Ecuador is distributing 6 mio. Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs (CFLs) to replace energy intensive Incandescent lightbulbs in poverty level households. This activity is supposed to save approximately 500kWh of electricity per household anually, thus reducing electricity costs. The total annual electricity savings are estimated at 750,000 MWh.

The project is the first large scale CFL project registered under CDM.

CDM Methane emission avoidance, Tanzania
Kunde: 
Green Resources ASA, Norway
Project type: 
CDM
Land: 
Tanzania
Methodik: 
AMS III.E
  • Evaluating the feasibility of the small-scale CDM project
  • Calculation of the potential emissions reduction
  • Elaboration of the Project Design Document (PDD)

The planned project includes collection and utilization of the waste wooden sawdust of the client´s sawmill operation and from operations of around 500 small saw millers in the area. At the moment the sawdust is disposed of in piles where it decays under anaerobic conditions emitting methane. The project aims to mitigate this problem by using the waste sawdust for pellets/briquettes production – a renewable carbon neutral energy source.
