Carbonflow® provides an integrated suite of software applications used by organizations worldwide to manage, monitor, and monetize their emission reduction and sustainable energy projects.
Our goal is to reduce the time, cost, and complexity of implementing projects, while complying with international, regional, national, and voluntary carbon market requirements. We host unique Software-as-a-Service products that empower participants to collaborate on a secure multi-party platform.
Biomass projects convert organic matter into usable forms of energy like ethanol and biodiesel. Many of the biomass fuels used today come from wood products, dried vegetation, crop residues, and aquatic plants. Biomass has become one of the most commonly used sustainable sources of energy.
Hydropower from dams, rivers, and tides is the most widely used form of renewable energy. The worldwide installed capacity of hydroelectricity is 700GW. This is approximately 24% of the world's electricity, and accounted for about 88% of electricity from renewable sources.
Methane is second only to carbon dioxide as a source of greenhouse gas emissions. Methane recapture projects turn human waste, animal waste, and coal bed gasses into a sustainable heat and energy source. Anaerobic recovery processes can be managed in a "digester" or a covered lagoon.
In 2010, solar energy projects represented 13.5GW of power with a 31% compound annual growth rate. Photovoltaic and concentrated solar power represent good sources of large scale energy generation. Smaller solar projects aid in steam generation, heating, cooking, and water purification.
Afforestation and reforestation projects under UN REDD+ and the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility strive to make forests more valuable standing than cut down, by creating financial value for the carbon stored in trees.
At the end of 2009, worldwide capacity of wind-powered generators was 159GW. China installed more wind turbines in the first half of 2010 than any other country - 7,800 megawatts of potential power production, or more than the European Union, United States, and India combined.
