Renewable Energy Projects

  1. Wind Power in Karnataka, India

Project 2112 in Karnataka, India, focuses on generating renewable electric power from wind energy. By displacing non-renewable fossil fuel-based electricity generation, this project significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It also fosters local economic development by creating approximately 2,000 jobs during its construction and operation. Additionally, the project promotes technological advancements in wind energy, encouraging further investment in renewable energy in the region.

  1. Elazig Solar Farm, Turkey

Project 2256 in Turkey is one of the first high-efficiency solar farms in the region. By providing clean, renewable energy to the Turkish National Grid, it helps reduce the country’s reliance on fossil fuels. This project not only cuts carbon emissions but also contributes to economic stability by reducing energy costs. It serves as a model for future solar energy projects, promoting sustainable energy solutions in Turkey.

  1. Salkhit Wind Farm, Mongolia

Project 1165, the Salkhit Wind Farm in Mongolia, is the country’s first grid-connected wind farm. This pioneering project generates renewable electricity and supplies it to the Mongolian central grid. Beyond reducing carbon emissions, it builds technical expertise in renewable energy, laying the groundwork for future green projects in a region with extreme temperature variations.

  1. Household Solar Lighting, Zambia

Project 2151 in Zambia addresses energy poverty by providing solar lighting to families without access to electricity. By replacing kerosene lamps with solar-powered devices, this project not only reduces carbon emissions but also improves living conditions. It enhances educational opportunities for children and reduces household expenses, contributing to the overall well-being of the community.

Nature-Based Projects

  1. Improved Biodiversity and Mixed Reforestation, Costa Rica

Project 1164 in Costa Rica is transforming degraded pastureland into vibrant, mixed forest plantations. By planting over one million trees, this project enhances local biodiversity, creating habitats for numerous wildlife species, including those on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It also sequesters significant amounts of carbon, contributing to global climate mitigation efforts.

  1. Reforestation on Degraded Land, Uruguay

Project 1197 in Uruguay aims to reforest over 21,000 hectares of degraded land previously used for cattle grazing. This ambitious initiative not only sequesters carbon but also restores the natural ecosystem, promoting biodiversity. It provides substantial economic benefits by creating jobs and supporting rural development, aligning with national priorities for sustainable growth.

  1. Blue Carbon Mangrove Restoration, Pakistan

Project 2154 is a pioneering blue carbon initiative in Pakistan’s Indus River Delta. This project focuses on restoring mangrove forests, which are vital for carbon sequestration and coastal protection. By removing millions of tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere, it plays a critical role in global climate mitigation. The project also supports local communities by protecting fisheries and enhancing livelihoods.
