CER biomass project India (SOLD OUT)
The Indur Biomass Electricity Generation project in Andhra Pradesh, India, uses rice husks, juliflora, and bagasse as primary fuels for a 7.5 MW facility to generate renewable energy. There is adequate availability of biomass and substantial industrial power demand in the Nizamabad area, making it an ideal location for this project.
- The creation of job opportunities for local communities
- Additional revenue for farmers supplying crop residue to the power plant
- Power generation in the area stimulates rural development and ultimately prevents migration to the cities
- Demonstrates the feasibility and cost effectiveness of clean technologies in this region
- A reduction in the use of ecologically hazardous landfill sites
This project was approved under the UN Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), and registered on 10 June 2006 by the UN’s CDM Executive Board. This ensures the highest level of rigor in the validation, approval and registration of the project.
The emissions reductions associated with this project and the baseline scenario (that is, what would have happened without the implementation of this project) were determined according to a methodology approved by the UN. The methodology applied to this project is that for grid connected renewable energy generation AMS-I.D.
Additionality is demonstrated using the UN’s CDM ‘Tool for Additionality’. Through this it was demonstrated that the project would not have been commissioned without the revenues derived from the associated sale of emissions reductions. The application of this tool is independently verified by a UN accredited DOE DNV.
The Indur project has a significant positive impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. Prior to its implementation, rice husks, juliflora, and bagasse were left to decay at a landfill site. This process resulted in the release of methane which is a potent greenhouse gas. This project prevents such decomposition and reduces methane emissions. Simultaneously, the project supplies carbon neutral renewable electricity to the local power grid, reducing the requirement for fossil fueled power plants elsewhere in India.
