Allianz SE & C-Quest Capital LCC to work on Carbon Project in India

Jump to the comments
German insurer Allianz SE (ALVG.DE) and U.S.-based C-Quest Capital LCC to finance the installation of about 8.5 million energy-efficient lightbulbs in India in return for U.N.-backed carbon offsets.
The 10-year project will fund the installation of compact fluorescent lightbulbs in Punjab, Andhra Pradesh and northern Delhi, informed Mr.Armin Sandhoevel, chief executive of Allianz Climate Solutions.

He said the project would cut about 3.7 million tonnes of carbon emissions over the decade, about the equivalent of the annual pollution from one million cars, and earn 3.2 million internationally tradeable U.N. offsets called certified emission reductions, or CERs.

The project is part of an expanded form of U.N.-offset projects that reward clean-energy investments in poorer countries. Called programme of activities, or PoA, it allows a large number of identical projects across a region or country to be bundled together.

This cuts project administration costs and can result in a large number of emissions reductions and therefore offsets.

The Allianz-CQC project is only the second PoA registered in India and one of 14 registered globally. None have yet to receive their CERs but Sandhoevel was confident issuance would occur in a matter of weeks.

He said Allianz had about 20 low-carbon projects in the pipeline focusing on energy efficiency, renewable energy and forest carbon in developing nations to earn either CERs or Gold Standard voluntary market offsets.

The company is already committed to forest preservation projects in Kenya and Indonesia as part of Allianz's goal of reducing its own global emissions and expand its carbon-cutting investments.

Solar power is a great way to save money on power bills. For instance, I had a solar water heetar installed for my pool. It uses the sun's energy to keep my pool heated throughout the day, even during the winter. It's really nice having a warm pool to jump into, even during the winter when it's cooler.But anyways, I installed the solar water heetar myself. It's fairly easy, and the trick is to find a good deal on the equipment. However, once you have the right equipment, you'll need to find the right solar power information. Awhile back I found some good books that will help you with your solar projects. It's been extremely helpful for me, so I hope it works out for you too, especially if you're looking to try and save some money from your power bill. Check out the sources section below.
