Exploring new levels of Climate Finance opportunities

Exploring new levels of Climate Finance opportunities

Together with the Austrian Society for Environment and Technology (OGUT) Energy Changes is building up a crowdfunding platform for financing climate change mitigation projects with a geographical focus on Least Developed Countries (LDCs). The pioneer project will define the legal and organizational structure of the platform and create a pipeline of projects to be financed by the platform. The project is supported by the Austrian Ministry for the Environment, Agriculture, Forestry, and Water Management.

NAMAs as new climate finance mechanism

NAMAs as new climate finance mechanism

Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions or NAMAs are becoming increasingly important as a means to finance carbon mitigation activities in developing countries. Energy Changes has been an active player in this innovative field since the very beginning, and has become a leading consultant for NAMA development. Currently we are developing NAMAs for the governments of Cambodia, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Laos, Morocco, Namibia, Tanzania, Uganda, Vanuatu and Zambia.

NAMA study for the Renewable Energy Sector of Vanuatu

NAMA study for the Renewable Energy Sector of Vanuatu

Access to electricity in Vanuatu is amongst the lowest in the world, nearly all electricity produced is based on diesel. The design of a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) is aimed at setting a framework for both enhancing the access to energy in the rural areas as well as raising the share of renewable energy generation in the electricity sector.

Due Diligence for Improved Cook Stove PoAs

Due Diligence for Improved Cook Stove PoAs

Energy Changes, as a member of an international consortium lead by Cornland International AB, is carrying out due diligence services for the Swedisch Energy Agency (SEA)for a number of improved cook stove Programme of Activities (PoA) in Africa. In most of Africa, traditional cooking methods are very inefficient, leading to a high consumption of non-renewable biomass, having negative impacts on the environment, climate change, as well as health and household budget of users.

Standardized Baseline for Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings

Standardized Baseline for Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings

Energy Changes is working on a new approach to calculate green house gas reductions in the building sector. Energy efficiency measures offer a great carbon mitigation potential. Standardized baselines facilitate project implementation and financing in diverse sectors with a large variety of measures. The Middle East shows an immense energy reduction potential in the building sector. With this innovative approach, Energy Changes will support Dubai in reducing a great share if its GHG emissions.

Energy Changes starts research on smart energy neighbourhoods

Energy Changes starts research on smart energy neighbourhoods

Energy Changes is proud to announce that it has been selected for support within the Call Smart Vienna 2012 of the Research Programme financed by the City of Vienna. In the coming year, Energy Changes will – in cooperation with TEMAPLAN GmbH work on the project “Energiemodell Grätzl+ Das Energie4tel” (Energy model for a Neighbourhood). The main objective of this project is to develop an energy model which facilitates the planning of new “smart” city districts with regards to a sustainable and resource efficient energy supply.
