💡Program Targets

South Pole are also seeking to source energy attribute certificates, commonly known as renewable energy certificates (RECs), from small-scale distributed solar assets from across Africa. This is for the D-REC Initiative scheme, a new program aiming to increase revenues for distributed solar developers. You can find out more about D-RECs here.

Specifically, we are currently seeking eligible projects from the following countries:

  • Ghana
  • Senegal
  • Côte d’Ivoire
  • Cameroon
  • Angola

Projects of interest are small-scale solar projects, typically from 50 Wp up to 1 MWp in size, and includes:

  • Off-grid or grid-connected projects
  • Rural electrification projects
  • Water desalination projects
  • C&I projects
  • Agricultural projects
  • Healthcare projects
  • Education projects

To be eligible, your project should have access to the electricity generation data from your project, ideally via remote monitoring. Additionally, you must have ownership of the environmental attributes from your project and not be monetizing your project via any other environmental product.

🎁Program Benefits

Successful ventures in the program will benefit from:

  • Support in development of the project description documentation with relevant annexes and calculations.
  • We will contract and work with an independent auditor to get a project validation and certification that confirms that your project complies with the rules of the different standards.
  • We will contract and work with an independent auditor for the project verification, meaning the ex-post confirmation that the project has successfully reduced emissions.
  • We will manage the project’s carbon credits registry account and issue, transfer and retire the carbon credits.
  • We will deliver the carbon credits to our global network of buyers.
  • Further support will be offered depending on unique project scenarios.
