CLIMATE FINANCE

CLIMATE FINANCE

The UpEnergy team has an industry-leading track record of building and managing large scale projects that leverage carbon finance to save low income households energy and improve livelihoods. To quantify carbon savings, we rigorously track and verify how the products we sell fight climate change. Third parties conservatively audit our work to ensure the integrity of the emissions reductions. Our process generates emissions reductions in the form of UN certified carbon credits (CERs)  and Voluntary Credits (Gold Standard VERs)  which we deliver to buyers under the Clean Development Mechanism and in voluntary markets. Our success with carbon sales uniquely positions us to grow distribution and partnerships and reach more customers with energy saving products.

UpEnergy has two carbon crediting mechanisms issuing carbon credits: a registered Gold Standard cookstove project and a UN Clean Development Mechanism Programme of Activities. These projects guarantee not only that our products fight climate change, but that they improve livlihoods.

The UpEnergy team has developed carbon crediting methodologies and led to profitability each of the world’s first three Gold Standard energy efficient cookstove projects that have resulted in the sale of over 600,000 clean cookstoves globally.
