Pacific Carbon Trust issues open call for carbon offsets
Submitted by Grant Boyle, Articled Student, Vancouver
On October 5 the Pacific Carbon Trust (PCT) issued an open call for carbon offsets.
The solicitation will be open to multiple sectors including energy, landfills, transportation, buildings, forest products, tourism, agriculture and waste management. A separate land-based forestry offset solicitation is under development.
Eligible project types include landfill management (methane capture), fuel switching, energy efficiency, and carbon capture and storage. To be considered, offsets must be generated in BC and have begun operation after Nov. 29, 2007.
Applicants who successfully respond to the solicitation and meet the qualification criteria will be included in the second phase of the process, a project selection solicitation.
As discussed in a previous postingthe PCT is a Crown Corporation established in 2008 to deliver BC-based greenhouse gas offsets to the BC public sector under BC's Emissions Offset Regulation.
