The project concerns a run-of-river hydropower plant of 16.5 MW located on the river Ampamehana and connected to Antananarivo regional grid. It supplies the equivalent of 400 000 people with green electricity and avoids the emissions of 35k tons of CO2 equivalent/year.
This is the first privately owned hydro power plant in Malagasy history, the first to be realised in Madagascar in the last 25 years and the first carbon reduction project registered under the United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Clean Development Mechanism scheme in Madagascar. Parts of the certified emissions reductions generated are kept by promoters for the ethiCarbon Afrique® initiative, so that they can be used for ethical and solidarity purposes.
The project « La Ferme - Bambous Solar Photovoltaic Power Plant » is a 15.2 MW solar photovoltaic power plant located in Eau Bonne, Bambous (Mauritius). It involves the setting up of 60,800 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels to produce electricity, which is then exported to the national grid. Registered under the Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) and also under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)’s Clean Development Mechanism scheme, the project generates certified emissions reductions (CER) and aims to cut down 222 000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions over the first 10 years crediting period. Parts of the CERs are kept by promoters for the ethiCarbon Afrique® initiative, so that they can be used for ethical and solidarity purposes.
