Exxaro West Coast Wind Farm, South Africa
Sector: Renewable energy
Project type: Wind power
The project envisages the construction and operation of a wind farm with installed capacity of 40 MW. Produced electricity will be supplied to the Eskom electricity network. The reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as a result of the project implementation will be achieved due to reduction of CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at the existing grid-connected power plants and plants which would likely be built in the absence of the project activity.
The first crediting period of the project is 01/07/2013 – 31/06/2023.
Total estimated GHG emission reduction over the first 7-year crediting period is 1 177 060 tCO2e.
