Project Categories

Even though our name suggests that we reduce emissions only by increasing efficiency, this actually represents just one type of emission reduction: The projects we deal with (i.e. small-scale projects approved by the UN CDM Executive Board) are categorized in 14 different groups of three types.

For instance, the generation of additional heat and electricity from renewable energy also counts as emission reduction, even though the total amount of greenhouse gases emitted is not actually reduced:  The installation of renewable energy capacities not only recognises the developing countries’ right to improve their power supply, but is also expected to avoid future emissions  in the face of a growing energy demand worldwide.

Below, you can see the 3 types and 14 categories of approved small-scale projects; we highlighted the categories you are most likely to get involved with in green.
