Gold Standard GS0905 Wind Power Carbon Offset in Turkey

Spread the word

The Institute assists companies and individuals to go carbon neutral by offering wholesale prices direct from the trading floor of the global carbon spot exchange. Projects can include wind, solar, hydro, biomass energy recovery, geothermal and GHG abatement. This offer does not apply to people who want to choose a particular project type.

These carbon credits are issued by the Gold Standard Registry. The Gold Standard is one of the most widely respected carbon standards available on the market, with one of the most rigorous certification standards available for carbon offset projects. This ensures that they deliver genuine emission reductions and long-term sustainable development through linking to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Upon purchase, you will be issued with a certificate with the amount of tonnes of carbon credits and their serial numbers which may be verified on the from the Gold Standard Registry at https://registry.goldstandard.org/

The Climate Change Institute is a name you can trust with an independent verification process. We also provide an emission reduction program and GHG accounting tutorials. The Institute believes that climate friendly companies should be recognised by consumers. When you buy offsets we grant you the right to use our logo on your website, packaging or where anyone comes into contact with your brand. We are also happy to provide free editorials through our social media network of over 750,000 followers.

DESCRIPTION

Galata Wind Enerji A.S. (GALATA) installed Sah WPP with 105 MWM/105 MWe installed capacity in Bandirma district of Balikesir and Karacabey district of Bursa, Turkey. The project WPP have 35 turbines of which 22 turbines are in Balikesir province, and 13 turbines are in Bursa province, each having an output of 3.0 MW. The total electricity production of the project is expected to be 341.275 MWh/year. Sah WPP has connected via a 35 km transmission line to the 154 kV Gobel Transformer Station and the generated electricity is supplied to Turkey’s national electricity grid.”

Wind Power

THE SITUATION

Wind Projects produce renewable energy to power homes and industry, keeping hundreds of thousands of tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere each year. Developing countries have experienced a rapid increase in the demand for electricity fuelled by economic growth over the past two decades. However, with demand outpacing the current supply, electricity shortages and increasingly regular power cuts are negatively affecting the economy and local livelihoods.

THE SOLUTION

Wind turbines generate clean electricity, displacing energy generated from fossil fuels and reducing global emissions. They contribute to bridging the supply-demand electricity gap in developing countries and are an important investment in renewable energy. In addition to replacing electricity generated by fossil fuels, these projects provide opportunities for the next generation of renewable energy technicians by providing work and critical experience.

THE IMPACT

These projects meet growing demands with clean energy and helping drive a low carbon future and boost local economic development. They projects create steady jobs for the operation of the wind farm and pave the way for similar wind power projects in the region. This can include the construction of upgraded power transmission lines which reduces electricity losses and improves supply.

THE OUTCOME

By reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in electricity generation, wind projects make a significant contribution to climate action globally. Air pollutants such as sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particles resulting from the electricity generation from fossil fuels are reduced. The projects can boost local small economies by creating local employment during both the construction and operational phases, stimulating climate skills technology in developing countries.

Verification

The Gold Standard Registry issues carbon credits, each is equivalent to one tonne of CO2e. It is the central repository for all information and documentation relating to Gold Standard projects and units. The Registry also ensures the uniqueness of projects and credits in the system. Projects are subject to a rigorous verification process where transparency underpins the positive outcomes of the carbon projects it certifies.

  • Fishers in Madagascar adapt to deadly seas due to climate change
    on April 13, 2024 at 12:00 pm

    Fishing communities in the south of Madagascar are facing sometimes deadly sea conditions due to climate change, but with the help of the UN’s International Labour Organization (ILO) are finding ways to adapt to the new circumstances they face.

  • Japanese town leads the way to a low waste society
    on March 29, 2024 at 12:00 pm

    When the landfill in Osaki, in the southwest of Japan, reached capacity, an incinerator was the logical next step. Instead, the town decided to get serious about recycling. Ahead of International Zero Waste day, marked on 30 March, Kasumi Fujita, a town councillor committed to Osaki’s low waste policies, tells UN News what inspired her.
