  • Exploration Risk for Geothermal Power Investments - Approaches across the globe

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Generating electric power based on geothermal energy is attractive (i) because of the low CO2 emissions and (ii) because electricity can be produced constantly, independent of the availability of wind or sunlight. These characteristics make geothermal energy an important option for safe, cost-effective and climate friendly power production. The main caveats are that geothermal energy is not available everywhere and that it is uncertain whether the resource will actually be found at a given site.

  • Low-carbon, cost-efficient, cosy: Efficient lighting for public buildings

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    In public buildings lighting accounts for about 40% of the electricity costs. If you multiply this figure by the number of kindergartens, schools and universities, town halls, local government buildings and government departments, libraries, swimming pools and hospitals, then the total is enormous. Lighting in public buildings is currently consuming far more energy than necessary, with all the negative side-effects such as high running costs, electricity bottlenecks and damage to the climate. That can easily be changed.

  • JCM Power

    Type: 
    Organisation
    Country of registration:
    Canada
    Relation to CTCN:
    Network Member
    Sector(s) of expertise:

    JCM Power is a Canadian-based renewable energy company that develops and operates renewable energy projects in growth markets. JCM leverages its development expertise acquired through five years of development experience in Canada and over 70 projects, to emerging markets where the demand for renewable energy solutions is high and the level of experience with renewable energy is low. JCM is currently developing a multibillion-dollar clean power portfolio.
