CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION ADVISORY SERVICES
CRX originates, develops and implements Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency projects.
We apply methodologies developed by the UNFCCC to Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), Voluntary (VCS), Gold Standard and International Renewable Energy Certificates (IREC).
Our projects reduce emissions and yield positive socio-economic benefits, in developed and developing countries alike.
Project samples are available on request.
CLEAN ENERGY PROJECT ORIGINATION
CRX works with technology partners to originate clean-tech projects. Such projects neither generate nor run non-renewable energy.
We also apply technologies with the objective of recovering energy from spent non-renewable resources.
STRUCTURED PROJECT FINANCE
CRX facilitates structured project finance through debt or equity instruments for projects in energy efficiency, clean energy and renewable energy.
We collaborate with globally-renowned financial institutions, audit firms and technology experts to conduct due diligence on the technical and financial aspects of projects.
CARBON FOOT-PRINTING & EMISSIONS REDUCTIONS OFFSETS
CRX’s carbon foot-printing services allows individuals and corporations to conduct a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory of direct and indirect emissions. A complete inventory can then be validated under ISO14064, (by a 3rd party) for complete transparency and emissions discovery.
Once these emissions are measured, we advise our clients on reduction solutions. This could be through Renewable Energy and/or Energy Efficiency project development. Once done, our clients can offset their emissions through through the Voluntary Carbon Standard, Gold Standard and International Renewable Energy Certificates.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ADVISORY SERVICES
CRX provides bespoke holistic solutions for organisations to ‘give back’ to society and the environment, and demonstrate to their stakeholders an applicable process flow. Solutions may be devised, applying our various areas of expertise, such the Integrative Design Process.
Implemented solutions will be set out in a comprehensive report or plan of action set to global standards and where required, tailored to suit local regulations and best practices.
INTEGRATED DESIGN VIA FACTOR TEN ENGINEERING
The Integrative Design Process (IDP) is based on Factor Ten Engineering principles. It can be used in master planning developments, townships, cities and regions – or to make a single building run more efficiently. IDP cuts costs but dispels the myth that being green and sustainable is ‘costly’.
Capital expense (CAPEX) is reduced at the outset, as precious natural resources such as energy and water are conserved at their source. Operational expense (OPEX) is reduced as IDP reduces waste and converts what’s left into useful products, such as feedstock and fuel. IDP also optimises efficiency at every level.
Factor Ten Engineering (10xE) assists engineers and architects to attack resource-intensive design problems. Examples are manufacturing/industrial processes and facilities using whole-system or holistic principles. Rather than a rigid formula, 10xE is a set of ideas for shaping the design space and design approaches within it.
The IDP approach is meant for those purchasing or approving design services, as well as design practitioners and those developing a master plan. CRX facilitates the exchange of expertise by and between the design team and consultants, and provides priority-rated solutions. The approach allows solutions to be presented from conceptual design to construction, right through to day-to-day operations.
10xE currently offers design principles and a growing set of case studies over several projects. 10xE is pioneered by the Rocky Mountain Institute.
