Project Title Bagepalli CDM Biogas Programme
Project Description World's first pro-poor CDM Project, registered with the UNFCCC in 2005 to build 5,500 domestic biogas units that replaced non-renewable biomass. ADATS entered into an ERPA with Velcan Energy, France, wherein we sold the entire 136,871 CERs that would be generated during the first 7 years, in advance, for a lump sum of € 1.1 million. With this money, ADATS built 5,485 domestic biogas units for as many poor women from 339 villages in Chickballapur Taluk in 2006 and 2007.
Poor women enjoy smoke-free cooking, cleaner kitchens, better health, and a huge saving in the time and effort they used to put in to collect firewood.
