The ClimeTrek team has the expertise and experience in developing carbon offset projects around the world.
All projects are aligned with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The projects cover all mechanisms (CDM, VCS, Gold Standard, GCC) and are located in a wide geographic region.
Nature-based solutions seek to utilise the healing power of nature to mitigate the adverse impact of climate change. These include afforestation, reforestation, forest management, peatland restoration, carbon sequestration in coastal ecosystems (Blue Carbon) among others.
The ClimeTrek team has experience in managing forestry projects in Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia. Currently we have forest management projects in Brazil, Ghana, and in the Congo region. A blue carbon project is also underway in Kenya.
The major share of the worlds growing energy needs comes from fossil fuels like oil, natural gas, and coal. Fossil fuels besides being non-replenishable cause serious environmental damage to the planet. Renewable energy sources, in contrast to fossil fuel, are replenished naturally and do not have a significant environmental impact. In theory, it means a never-ending supply of eco-friendly sources of energy.
The most popular renewable energy sources currently are Solar, Wind, Hydropower and Biomass.
Solar technology involves capturing light and heat energy from the sun and converting it into usable electricity or heat. This technology can be utilised for small, medium, and large capacity units. ClimeTrek has been involved in projects with capacities ranging from 5 MW to 100 MW. These projects are mainly concentrated in India and Central Asia.
Wind power generation refers to the process of conversion of wind energy (kinetic energy) to electrical or mechanical energy in wind turbines. The energy generated depends on the size of the wind turbines.
The team has managed projects, mostly located in India with capacities in the range of 1.6 MW to 22.5 MW.
Hydropower is a clean source of energy and is generated by converting the potential and kinetic energy of a water source into electrical or mechanical energy. Hydropower accounts for almost 16.34% of the total power generated globally.
The team at ClimeTrek has been involved in numerous hydropower projects in India and Bhutan of capacities up to 1200 MW.
Biomass is fuel generated from renewable organic sources. The use of biomass is generally considered to be carbon neutral. The ClimeTrek team has successfully managed several biomass projects in South Asia and Indonesia.
ClimeTrek is currently managing several biogas and Land Fill Gas (LFG) projects in Turkey. These projects are all in various stages of completion.
A large plastics recycling project in Turkey is on the cards.
The team at ClimeTrek is also in the process of independently developing methodologies for generation of Carbon credits in Shipping and for the use of hemp in construction.
