Two wind plant win CDM emissions reduction units

Chennai-based Indowind Energy says its 12.3 MW installations at Tirunelveli Tamil Nadu are the first wind plant in India to be issued certified emission reductions under the Clean Development Mechanism established under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The wind plant have been awarded 17,648 reduction certificates. Indowind reports that it is the 52nd energy project globally to be issued with emissions reduction certificates and the 23rd in India. "The additional revenue stream will help the company's bottom line growth and also improve its stature as a clean green energy company," says Indowind's A. Raja Sukumar. Meantime, a 3.75 MW demonstration wind power project at Chalkewadi in Satara district, commissioned by the Maharashtra Energy Development Agency (MEDA), has become the country's first public sector project registered under the CDM. MEDA's Anil Diggkar says it will produce around 6890 Certified Emission Reductions.
