Carbon Solutions Consulting
ARC Southern Energy LLC has capabilities to work with renewable energy project developers to help them monetize their carbon credits and RECs. ARC SE is capable of originating, evaluating and documenting carbon credit projects, securing verifiers to the project site and then registering it with CCAR and CCX. We will prepare all the documentation required for carbon credits, guide you through the diverse requirements, protocols, the approval and the verification process. ARC also will ensure that we can arrange for the sale of carbon credits on your behalf, the carbon credits(CEC) and REC's the renewable energy project generates. If you have a project which you think will lead to carbon GHG emission reductions, talk to us, we'll advise you on its possible success. Best of all these carbon credits offer companies access to capital to fund projects which will improve your ROI.
ARC can work with project developers to obtain environmental finance, grants, tax-credits, and subsidies. ARC provides solutions for the following renewable energy project types:
- Landfill gas to energy project
- Sewage sludge to energy project
- Livestock waste to energy project
Our knowledge of the carbon credits and carbon dioxide emissions offset markets can help you make your environmental leadership goals more financially viable.
Emissions trading (or emission trading) is an administrative approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emissions of pollutants. It is sometimes called cap and trade.
A central authority (usually a government or international body) sets a limit or cap on the amount of a pollutant that can be emitted. Companies or other groups are issued emission permits and are required to hold an equivalent number of allowances (or credits) which represent the right to emit a specific amount. The total amount of allowances and credits cannot exceed the cap, limiting total emissions to that level. Companies that need to increase their emission allowance must buy credits from those who pollute less. The transfer of allowances is referred to as a trade. In effect, the buyer is paying a charge for polluting, while the seller is being rewarded for having reduced emissions by more than was needed. Thus, in theory, those who can easily reduce emissions most cheaply will do so, achieving the pollution reduction at the lowest possible cost to society. (Source Wikipedia)
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), also known as Green tags, Renewable Energy Credits, or Tradable Renewable Certificates (TRCs), are tradable environmental commodities in the United States which represent proof that 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was renewable (generated from an eligible renewable energy resource).
These certificates can be sold and traded or barterd and the owner of the REC can claim to have purchased renewable energy. While traditional carbon emissions trading programs promote low-carbon technologies by increasing the cost of emitting carbon, RECs can incentivize carbon-neutral renewable energy by providing a production subsidy to electricity generated from renewable sources. It is important to understand that the energy associated with a REC is sold separately and is used by another party. The consumer of a REC receives only a certificate. (Source Wikipedia)
