Renewable Energy Portfolio, Global

Carbon finance enables renewable energy projects around the world to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy.

Project Type: Sustainable infrastructure, Renewable energy

Standards: CDM

  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 2 China Wind
  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 3 India Wind
  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 4 India Solar
  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 5 Africa Solar
  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 6 Africa Solar
  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 7 China Solar
  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 8 Coastal Wind
  • Renewable Energy Portfolio Global 9 Mountain Wind

Renewable energy projects in this portfolio are vital to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the growing global demand for energy and build sustainable infrastructure. Energy generation is one of the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, and renewable energy investment is a fast and effective solution to reduce these emissions. Carbon finance, delivered by companies who offset their emissions, provides essential funds to support the development of global renewable projects.

Onshore wind is the number one solution to combat climate change between 2020 and 2050 in a 1.5 degrees Celsius scenario.

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to delivering emissions reductions to take climate action (SDG 13), the projects have been certified by the Gold Standard that they deliver a number of other benefits:

  • Affordable and Clean Energy: Contribute to increasing the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix. Clean electricity generated by these projects displaces electricity which would otherwise be powered by fossil fuels.
  • Decent Work and Economic Growth: Contribute to the local economy and livelihood of residents through the creation of jobs. These include full-time maintenance and operational roles, and temporary roles during planning and construction.
  • Industry Development and Innovation: Support the development of sustainable and resilient energy infrastructure, helping reduce the instance of shortages of electricity during peak hours of demand. The projects also often help develop road infrastructure, which is improved to aid site access.

While renewables account for more than one-third of global electricity, they account for less than half that figure (~15%) of the global energy mix which includes electricity, transportation and heating.
