Keith Driver of the Prasino Group and Adam Winter of Cap-Op Energy to present new initiative today at the PTAC SME Showcase of Technologies in Calgary, Alberta.
Certified Cap-Op Ready™ products have been vetted to ensure data transfer compatibility and protocol eligibility for generating carbon offsets with the Cap-Op Energy Distributed Energy Efficiency Project Platform (DEEPP).
Cap-Op’s DEEPP is designed to lower the barriers for industry to conduct energy efficiency projects, by lowering quantification costs up to 50%, and by creating predictable offset revenue. The DEEPP addresses the challenges associated with the development, aggregation, tracking, and financing of carbon reduction and fuel gas savings projects.
Certified Cap-Op Ready™ products have benefits for both manufacturers and producers.
Manufacturers will benefit by:
-Quickly letting their customers know they can count on the energy efficiency gains and greenhouse gas emission reductions from using the manufacturer’s products.
-Standing behind their fuel and emissions savings claims with confidence. These claims will be backed by third party verification.
-Differentiating their product while adding value for customers by providing a turnkey path to carbon offsets.
Producers will be able to:
-Take confidence in knowing that their energy efficiency investments can be tracked and will yield carbon offsets when products are properly installed and maintained.
-Tap into available best management practices for selecting and installing these products while maximizing a producer’s return on investment.
Participating manufacturers will be granted the use of the Certified Cap-Op Ready stamp for use on their marketing and sales materials, including websites and social media when related to specific products that have been approved by Cap-Op Energy. Approved products will be listed on the Cap-Op website for additional exposure.
