Klimafond

For hver solgt MWh af EKOenergi går der minimum 10 eurocent til EKOenergis Klimafond. Disse penge vil blive brugt til at investere i klimaprojekter, som ikke ville have fundet sted uden bidragsyderne.

EKOenergi opretter ikke sine egne projekter, men finansierer projekter forvaltet af erfarne organisationer.

Projekterne udvælges via en gennemsigtig og åben udvælgelsesprocedure, hvor udbydere og forbrugere er aktivt involveret. Den endelige beslutning træffes af EKOenergi-bestyrelsen.

Se kapitel 9 i teksten “EKOenergy – Netværk og mærkning” ved behov for flere informationer.

Første projekter

Hurtigt efter vores lancering besluttede vi at bruge de første penge af Klimafonden på klimaprojekter i udviklingslande. Det er her, vi virkelig kan gøre en forskel med relativt få penge. Men vi forbliver åbne for andre forslag.

I midten af juni 2013 lancerede vi den første indkaldelse af projekter, og i september 2013 modtog vi præcis 100 forslag, der indeholdte over 130 projekter. Projektansøgerne kom fra over 30 forskellige lande, og de foreslåede projektlokaliteter var spredt over fire kontinenter og mere end 70 lande. Med hjælp fra en ekstern jury valgte vi projekter i 3 lande, som vi ønsker at fokuserer på.

Climate projects 2017

  • We donated € 15,000 to the Norwegian organisation Naturvernforbundet for a project in Tajikistan: ”In cooperation with a local community organisation they want to set up an energy shop and a service center. These will help introduce affordable small solar systems, providing a minimum of light and power for communication. Availability and transport costs are the main barriers for introduction of solar lanterns and solar home systems in remote areas of Tadjikistan. In order to make the cost as low as possible it is necessary to buy and transport in larger quantities. Capital is needed in order to invest in the equipment and bring it out to the consumers.”
  • € 15,618 went to the French organisation Santé Sud, for a project in Guinea.In order to improve the access to health care for more than 50 000 residents. Santa Sud seeks to provide eco-friendly rural electrification (solar panels) for community doctors health centres.”
  • € 17,000 went to a project of the Gram Vikas, India. ”We will install home lighting systems. We’re planning to cover 120 Households in total. Preference will be given to remote communities who are yet to be connected to the main grid, in the remote and interior pockets of the Kalahandi district of Odisha, India.”
  • € 25,000 went to a project of the Swiss Organisation CEAS in Madagascar. “They will install 3 Solar – powered kiosks for schools in rural villages of Madagascar”
  • We donated € 35,000 to a project of the Africa Conservation Trust, South Africa. ”The Zululand Community Solar Project aims to provide solar lighting systems to families living in the Kwadlakuse and Esikhuthwaneni communities – two deeply rural villages in Northern KwaZulu – Natal. This region forms part of the Zululand District Municipality, one of the poorest districts in South Africa largely due to its history as a marginalised homeland.
  • A project of the Palestinian organisation Applied Research Institute – Jerusalem got € 30,000 for the installation of solar installations in schools and other community buildings in Bethlehem.
  • € 20,000 went to the Belgian organization Solar without Borders (Solar zonder grenzen) for the installation of 4 more smart solar kiosks and mini grids in Togo and/or Benin.
  • The French organization FONDEM got € 20,000 to improve the living conditions of about 150 people by installing 2 solar water pumps in Senegal.
  • We donated € 45.000 to a project of the British organization Practical Action, in Sudan. “Practical Action is seeking support from EKOenergy to ensure poor rural households have access to safe, affordable and sustainable energy services through promotion of solar energy in the village of Barbujat, El Fashir, within the North Darfur state of Sudan”
