AMP issues request for proposals for carbon offset projects


From the February 27, 2014 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published February 27, 2014

American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) has issued a request for proposals for voluntary carbon market projects that are capable of generating carbon offsets in accordance with the various American Carbon Registry (ACR) or Climate Action Reserve (CAR) standards, protocols and methodologies. Proposed projects must be located within AMP’s seven-state footprint of Delaware, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, the joint action agency said. Proposals are due by 5 p.m. Eastern time on March 14.

At this time, AMP is limiting proposals to the following categories: forest management; afforestation and reforestation; coal mine methane; landfill methane; wastewater treatment; and anaerobic digestion. 

There is no requirement that electric generation be included as a product of these carbon offset projects, but projects with an electric generation component will not be rejected for that reason, AMP said. Proposals can be for both existing projects that can meet the ACR/CAR criteria as well as for new projects. 

More information on proposal submissions, including scope of work, schedule, commercial terms and form of proposal, is posted on AMP’s website
