We have some interesting CCS patent development options and also a screw type water generator that needs progressing and commercialising.
Several projects advancing from 2012, and some sadly put on hold for political reasons.
Carbon markets are still very shaky on the compliance side, and the VCS has seen both a massive increase in issuance and retirement. There must be some concern relating to the increase in available VCU's.
To balance this we were involved in several high profile 'Carbon Neutral' B2b campaigns last year, and there is a clear move towards corporate CSR incorporating environmental sustainability as a core principle.
So demand is increasing, and with the likes of Microsoft going irreversibly down the Carbon Positive route, and the reality of climate change being felt by way of dramatic weather events, and seen with glacier meltdowns future demand is likely to consume the available bank rapidly in the next few years.
Timing wise, investment in high quality voluntary carbon offset projects seems right.
REDD credits maintain their price premium and are likely to for the foreseeable future.
The Gold Standard are developing their IFM methodologies and we hope to put some projects through these in the next two years.
A diverse and interesting project line up for 2013!
