Oct 23, 2020 Feasibility Carbon Credit Trading
Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) averts millions of tons GHG emissions annually for clients from its building energy efficiency, super-efficient cooling, e-Vehicle, motor replacement, and other appliance energy efficiency programs. MAITREE experts assessed commercial viability of EESL facilitating Certified Emission Reduction (CER) and Voluntary Emission Reduction (VER) certificates which can be subsequently traded by project owners. EESL’s objective of pursuing CERs/ VERs was to offset projects costs from CER sales and encourage end-users to invest in energy efficiency.
