ACME SOLAR energy
Clean energy from solar power
various rural regions, India*
The solar project supports the introduction of renewable energies, to which grid operators are not legally required.
The implementation of the project ensures energy security and sustainable growth. The expansion of renewable energy generation will make it possible to take old inefficient power plants off the grid.
The project is VCS certified and the sale of the certificates is an important part of the financing of this project. The region is currently developing many decentralized solar projects, which are being developed and initiated by the ACME Group.
The renewable electricity generated in this way will be fed into the regional and national electricity grids in order to increase the share of renewable energy in India. The electricity produced in the rural area helps small farmers and small businesses to build and consolidate their livelihoods.
As the implementation of these technologies currently faces various technological, institutional and financial barriers, additional revenue from the sale of the allowances for this project is needed.
Climate protection taken seriously - with its own coal exit law
According to the Climate Protection Index 2017 (Germanwatch), India is ranked number nine places overall (!) In Germany in the international climate protection ranking.
And although India is one of the top ten emitters of carbon due to its 1.3 billion population, its per capita emissions are still at a relatively low level. Nevertheless, the country's emissions are currently rising rapidly. Although about 25 percent of the rising energy consumption is covered by renewable energies, there is still enough room for improvement.
India's government wants to quadruple the share of renewable energies by 2022. Electricity from solar collectors is already the cheapest source of electricity in India today. By 2026, all coal power plants are to be abolished. In 58 developing countries, including India, electricity from wind and sun is already cheaper than electricity from fossil fuels. (Bloomberg)
With our climate protection projects from India, we support the climate protection efforts of the central government, which has been playing a pioneering role for years now compared to Germany. Germany, as alleged climate protection pioneer subsidizes today, and probably the next decades, the brown coal electricity generation with billions of taxpayer money.
