The offset funding goes directly towards tree planting and a diverse range of offsetting projects around the world. These include the Burgos wind project the largest wind farm in the Philippines, hydroelectric power in the Amazon and the rice husk power project in Cambodia.
Carbon Neutral Britain Climate Fund Projects
Rice Husk Power Project Cambodia
The Angkor Bio Cogen (ABC) project is the first renewable energy project to utilize rice husk as biomass fuel for electricity generation in Cambodia, involves the operation of 2 MW new rice husk power generation plant in the Kandal province.
The electricity generated from biomass power plant to the Angkor Rice Mill that, in absence of the project activity, uses diesel oil to generate electricity for the rice mill operation. Besides from this, ABC provides surplus electricity to neighbouring factories and community through the power utility in Angsnoul District that, in the absence of the project activity, use diesel oil or batteries for their uses.
Hydroelectric Power in the Amazon Brazil
Maracanã is a run of river small hydropower plant with an installed capacity of 10.656 MW, located in Nova Marilândia, Brazil. It reduces an average of 17,183 tCO2 per year. The project activity has several social and environmental programs like providing historical data over soil and water quality of its area of influence.
The Project is a run of river Small Hydropower Plant (SHP) with an installed capacity of 10.656 MW. It can generate an average of 61,583 MWh per year, considering two Francis turbines, with a horizontal axis, and two generator units. The project is connected to the Brazilian National Interconnected System.
Burgos Wind Farm
The Burgos Wind Project is the largest wind farm in the Philippines. At the time it was built in 2014, it was also considered to be one of the largest wind farms in South East Asia. It is located in one of the best areas in the country to generate clean energy from wind. The 150-MW facility has fifty (50) Vestas V90 wind turbines, each with a rated capacity of 3 MWs. The wind farm has a substation which is connected to a 43 KM 115 kV Transmission Line to the Laoag substation of the grid operator, the NGCP (National Grid Corporation of the Philippines).
