Renewable Energy Service

Modern societies increasingly depend on reliable and secure energy supplies for economic growth and community prosperity. Maintaining reliable and secure energy supplies while rapidly decarbonising power systems is a key challenge for countries throughout the world.

Energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are the majority of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Renewable energy, whose production has almost zero impact and is always reversible, comes from inexhaustible natural resources. Clean energy contributes to mitigate global warming and promote sustainable development.

Through the Renewable Energy Service, ClimaLoop undertakes feasibility studies, preliminary designs and specifications for the following energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies:

ClimaLoop can help llandfills owners to receive revenue from the sale of electricity generated from LFG to the local power grid. The three most commonly used technologies for LFG energy projects that generate electricity — internal combustion engines, gas turbines and microturbines — can accommodate a wide range of project sizes.

 

Most (more than 70 percent) of the LFG energy projects that generate electricity use internal combustion engines, which are well-suited for 800 kW to 3 megawatts (MW) projects. Multiple internal combustion engine units can be used together for projects larger than 3 MW. Gas turbines are more likely to be used for large projects, usually 5 MW or larger. Microturbines, as their name suggests, are much smaller than gas turbines, with a single unit having between 30 and 250 kW in capacity, and are generally used for projects smaller than 1 MW. Small internal combustion engines are also available for projects in this size range.

ClimaLoop provides expertise and advice to support solar projects worldwide. Our solar services cover all aspects of the solar project lifecycle:

 

-Feasibility including technical and financial feasibility

-Design and development including pre-contract negotiations

-Construction management including acceptance testing

-Operational management services including asset management

-Due diligence including technical, commercial and environmental due diligence services

Buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions. Currently, about 35% of the EU’s buildings are over 50 years old. By improving the energy efficiency of buildings, we could reduce total EU energy consumption by 5% to 6% and lower CO2 emissions by about 5%. Financial support mechanisms in EU countries can help pay for energy efficient renovations.

The Energy Efficiency Certification of buildings (EEC) shows the energy consumption and annual CO2 emissions of a building. Energy rating scale is between A (most efficient building) and G (least efficient building). The EU has set a target for all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by 2020.

ClimaLoop leverages its expertise in the development of energy diagnostics and audits, and applies this knowledge to energy efficiency certification and energy saving improvement proposals. Energy performance certificates provide information on the energy efficiency of buildings and recommended improvements.

The Consultancy Services in ClimaLoop are directly managed and executed by Sergi Cuadrat, a Chemical Engineer with five years of experience in the development of climate change mitigation projects and over three years of previous work experience in the waste management sector. Having successfully conducted over 50 complex and multidisciplinary CDM project activities in more than 10 countries, he has gained a hands on experience in managing projects from Due Diligence to PDD development, Validation, Registration, Monitoring, Verification and CER Issuance. He is a team player with strong analytical, problem solving and communication skills with solid understanding of UNFCCC procedures and DOE management, combined with work experience in the waste management sector.
