Project Development

Welcome to the wonderful world of project development!

When you first start investigating the carbon market in more detail you’ll soon realize there are a wide range of emission reduction projects which can be developed. You’ll also work out fairly quickly that there is no such thing as a standard type of project and sometimes it can be a real mine field if you’re not careful.

If you’re not familiar with project development it’s important to get more educated before embarking on a project of your own. In terms of actual project development there are essentially two main types of projects that you can develop, being compliance and voluntary based projects. Within these two broad categories there are then several project sectors that you can choose from and within each of these sectors there are even more sub-subsectors and so on.

At the end of the day project development should be treated like any other commercial venture or opportunity. The appropriate amount of due diligence should always be done first relative to the time, effort, money or resources you are going to put on the line.

The Process

If we put aside all the technical stuff for the moment and simply look at project development as a process a pattern starts to appear. Most projects that you can develop will also usually follow a process similar to this;

  1. Idea
  2. Scope
  3. Design
  4. Validation
  5. Registration
  6. Monitoring
  7. Verification
  8. Issuance

However in saying this some of the different standards like to use their own standard specific language and a couple of them even change the order of things around. However if you look closely you’ll also see that most of them share the same basic elements like the ones we have listed above.

Marketing your project

One of the main purposes of this website is to help project owners and developers through the development process in terms of the initial sales and marketing process. As such you can list your project on Brokers Carbon at any stage of development and update it as the project progresses through the various stages.

In addition to this we also recognise that every project is different from the next one and that it will also have different financing requirements. When you list a project on Brokers Carbon you can fundamentally structure your offer in three completely different ways to a buyer or an investor being;

  • OTC Transaction (being Over The Counter)
  • Investment Opportunities
  • Development Opportunities

More Information

If you’d like more information on project development and how it all works there are three main ways that you can go about it;

  1. Spend the next three months researching it all on the internet. It’s all there you just need to know where to look (and how to find it).
  2. Find a specialist carbon consultant and if you pay them enough money they’ll be happy to explain to you how it all works.
  3. Or simply buy a copy of one of our ebooks such as our Project Development 101 ebook and save yourself both time and money.

And on a serious note we wouldn’t be promoting this ebook if we didn’t think it was great value as it’s our reputation on the line as we wrote it. At the end of the day there is no better way to get this much general information on how to start your own project, this quick and at this price.

And just to prove a point if you don’t like it or think it’s not worth the price you paid, we also offer a full money back guarantee. Click here if you’d like more information on it and how it all works.
