Wind Power Carbon Offset

Spread the word

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

This is a certified project and generates carbon credit certificates which are issued by the Gold Standard Registry, Verra and other international registries. Certified projects must meet rigorous certification standards. This ensures that they deliver genuine emission reductions and long-term sustainable development through linking to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

You can now purchase offsets through the Institute. 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 Verra, Gold Standard or other registry.

The Climate Change Institute is a name you can trust. We also provide an emission reduction program and GHG accounting tutorials.

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.

Verra carbon credits are issued under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program, the world’s leading greenhouse gas (GHG) crediting program.

VCS projects have reduced or removed nearly one billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere and drives finance toward activities that reduce and remove emissions, improve livelihoods, and protect nature.
