Zero Gas is powered by The CIKEL Project and works to avoid CO2 emissions by avoiding planned deforestation. The CIKEL Project helps reduce 9.4 million tons of CO2 emissions that would have been emitted into the atmosphere over the next 10 years. The CIKEL Project was the first REDD (Reducing [...]
A REC is a measure of the environmental benefits for the generation of 1 MWh of renewable electricity. Carbon offsets are typically achieved through projects that reduce greenhouse emissions.
Generally, RECs (Renewable Energy Certificates) are tradable, contractual instruments that represent the full suite of attributes of 1 Megawatt-hour of renewable energy generation on the electricity grid. RECs are the sole means to claim usage of grid-connected renewable electricity in the United States, and the compliance instrument for consumption- or [...]
A carbon offset is a reduction of greenhouse gasses measured in tons of carbon dioxide or methane avoided, sequestered or destroyed. Projects such as avoiding deforestation, planting of trees, methane management (such as cow ‘gas’), and management of landfill waste gases are the types of projects that aim to reduce [...]
Renewable energy is energy derived from natural resources that replenish themselves over a period of time without depleting the Earth’s resources. These resources also have the benefit of being abundant, available in some capacity nearly everywhere, and they cause little, if any, environmental damage. Energy from the sun, wind, and [...]
