CUIDEMOS Mexico - Smart Use of Energy Mexico

1276012462278-Mexico_de_noche.jpgCUIDEMOS Mexico, involves the distribution of energy efficient light bulbs to households across Mexico (implemented in geographically distinct areas across Mexico). 

The goal of the project is to transform the energy efficiency of Mexico’s residential lighting stock by distributing up to 30 million compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to households. By doing so, the program will abate greenhouse gas emissions through avoided electricity usage, significantly reduce national electricity demand and stress on energy infrastructure, and save individual households money on their electricity bills.

 The project includes a significant public education component. Raising awareness through information provided with products, as (Read more)

Bogota: Building a Sustainable City (Parte 1/3)

Jepirachi Wind Power Project - Colombia

The project consists of the development of a wind based generation facility with a nominal power capacity rated at 19.5 MW, located in Wayuu Indigenous Territory in the Northeastern region of the Atlantic Colombian coast, within the region of Uribia in the Department of Guajira.

The Project contributes to the sustainable development of Colombia in various ways. First, it demonstrates at a commercial level, the potential for wind based generation in the region thereby facilitating future investments to capture the relatively large aeolic potential (estimated at over 5 GW). Second, it increases the share of renewable energy in the national

The main objective of the Project is to generate electricity from wind, thus increasing the percentage of renewable sourced power in Mexico’s electricity grid, and, at the same time, contributing to the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the region.

The La Ventosa Project will reduce local air contaminants such as CO, NOx and SO by displacing fossilfuel based electricity. It will not produce any solid wastes or

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system - Barranquilla

The objective of the BRT Transmetro in Barranquilla, Colombia is to establish an efficient, safe, rapid, convenient, comfortable and effective modern mass transit system based on a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. Metropolitan Barranquilla has a population of around 1.9 million inhabitants1. The situation before the project is around 44,000 passenger cars, 32,000 motorcycles, more than 14,000 taxis and around 3,700 public transit buses plying the city. Public transport buses are owned and managed by 26 different private enterprises owing between 17 and 425 small, medium or large units each with an average age of 8 years.

Fuerza eólica del Istmo wind farm - Mexico

The purpose of the project activity consists in developing a wind farm, taking the advantage of the wind as an available renewable energy resourse, using an installed capacity of 50 MW.

This project is located in Mexico, especifically in the Southeastern, Oaxaca, of the Pacific Ocean Coast, in Tehuantepec Istmo.

The project will generate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions, avoiding CO2 emissions, mitigating the generation of electricity from fossil fuels supplied by the Mexican national electricity grid.

Loma Los Colorados landfill gas project

The objective of Loma Los Colorados Landfill Gas Project is to develop a landfill gas collection system. This will involve investing in and operating a system for landfill gas collection and flaring. Landfill gas flaring involves methane combustion leading to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions. Some of the landfill gas collected would be put to energy use at the landfill site and additional GHG emissions reductions —from CO2 emissions— would accrue and would be credited within this CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) project.

Bus rapid transit (BRT) system, Bogotá - Colombia: TransMilenio

     The goal of TransMilenio is to establish a sustainable mass urban transport system based on a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. TransMilenio phase II-IV which is the project presented is an extension of phase I. Phase I is not part of this CDM project.

     The objective of TransMilenio is to establish an efficient, safe, rapid, convenient, comfortable and effective modern mass transit system ensuring high ridership levels.

     TransMilenio has as main environmental aspect that the resource efficiency of transporting passengers in Bogotá is improved i.e. emissions per passenger trip are reduced compared to the situation without project. This is realized

Cable cars for mass transit systems in Colombia

The project is the construction and operation of six cable cars in the city of Medellin, Colombia.

They are used as mass transit options in hilly areas of the city. The cable cars are an integrative part of the metro system of Medellin with a pre-pay fare system and seamless transfer to the metro. Using cable cars as a mass transit option is unique worldwide. Only two comparable systems operate currently world-wide, both however with much lower capacity.
