Portfolio Selection

Example of typical eligible projects include:

  • Greenfield Renewable Energy Generation (e.g. solar, wind, geothermal and ocean power);
  • Demand-side Brownfield and Greenfield Energy Efficiency (e.g. energy efficiency improvements in lighting and equipment; retrofit of transmission lines, substations or distribution systems to reduce technical losses);
  • Vehicle energy efficiency fleet retrofit or urban transport modal change;
  • Biosphere conservation projects (reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation of ecosystems);
  • Solid Waste Management (e.g. incineration of waste, landfill gas capture and landfill gas combustion);
  • Industrial Processes (reduce GHG emissions from industrial processes improvements and cleaner production);
  • Fugitive emissions and carbon capture (e.g. carbon capture and storage, reduction of gas flaring or methane fugitive emissions in the oil and gas industry, coal mine methane capture);
  • Urban Development (e.g. rehabilitation and upgrade of urban water drainage systems in areas vulnerable to frequency and/or severity of flash floods and storm surges brought by climate change);
  • Water Supply and Access (e.g. water saving measures such as introduction of less water intensive crops or preservation of soil moisture and fertility).
