Carbon Footprint measurement of Pampa Tigre solar park
The Carbon Footprint is an environmental indicator that reflects the emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) released -directly or indirectly- into the atmosphere by an individual, organization, event or product. This calculation allows any organization to be aware of the impact that its activity generates on the environment, so that it can take measures to reduce this type of emissions.
As a company committed to the environment and the fight against climate change, OCA Global takes part in several projects to reduce GHGs, both nationally and internationally.
One of the works we are currently developing is the Carbon Fooprint measurement of Pampa Tigre photovoltaic park (Antofagasta, Chile) togehter with Mainstream Renewable Power (RMP), a solar and wind projects developer. The project is based on the ISO 14064 standard, which is the international protocol that sets the guidelines for establishing GHG emissions.
Therefore, and in accordance with the scope of direct emissions, we focus on the use and consumption of diesel fuels in the installation and construction of the solar park. More specifically, we measure the emissions associated with the use of diesel from trucks and generators. Once this information has been collected, our team will be able to apply the necessary measures to reduce emissions during the construction phase of ERNC (Non-Conventional Renewable Energies) projects.
