Kliimafond

Raha kliimaprojektidele

Iga EKOenergiana müüdud megavatt-tunni (MWh) kohta läheb EKOenergia kliimafondi vähemalt 10 eurosenti. Raha investeeritakse kliimaprojektidesse, mis ilma toetusteta teoks ei saaks.

EKOenergia ei alusta oma projekte, vaid rahastab kogenud projektiarendajate projekte.

Projektid valitakse välja läbipaistva ja avatud protsessiga, millesse on aktiivselt kaasatud elektrimüüjad ja tarbijad. Lõpliku otsuse teeb EKOenergia nõukogu.

Projektid 2015-2016

Õige pea pärast EKOenergia loomist otsustasime kasutada esimest Kliimafondi raha projektide toetamiseks arengumaades. Valisime selle tee, kuna seal on üsna väikeste summadega võimalik ellu kutsuda suuri positiivseid muudatusi. Loomulikult oleme me alati avatud ka teistele pakkumistele.

2013. aasta juunis kuulutasime välja konkursi projektide leidmiseks ning septembriks 2013 jõudis meieni 100 taotlust rohkem kui 130 projektiga. Taotlejaid oli rohkem kui 30 riigist ja projektide asukohad olid üle nelja kontinendi rohkem kui 70 riigis. Välise žürii abil valisime välja kolm projekti, millele lähemal ajal keskenduda.

Aastatel 2014, 2015 ja 2016 rahastasime me järgnevaid projekte:

  • Tansaania: 40 000 eurot Itaalia organisatsioonile Istituto Oikos, kes paigaldab päikesepaneele Põhja-Tansaania koolidele.
  • Indoneesia: 28 000 eurot Taani organisatsioonile HIVOS, kes paigaldab päikesepaneele asustusest kaugel asuvatesse koolidesse Sumbal (Indoneesia saar).
  • Kamerun: 38 000 eurot Šveitsi organisatsioonile SolAfrica päikesepaneelide paigaldamiseks koolidele ja tervisekeskustele Lõuna-Kamerunis.
  • Togo: 10 000 eurot Belgia organisatsioonile Solar without borders päikesekioskite paigaldamiseks Togos.
  • Peru: € 5,000 to the international organisation Practical Action, for a project to bring solar energy to remote villages in the Peruvian Andes

Kõik organisatsioonid tegutsevad tihedas koostöös kohalike partneritega. Kõik projektid on osa suurtest, pikaajalistest ja ambitsioonikatest projektidest.

We published a booklet highlighting four of the projects we financed last year through our Climate Fund. “Climate Projects 2016 – Funded by EKOenergy Users“.

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”
