Hydropower is a vital pathway to achieving net zero by 2050. However unless projects are built sustainably, hydropower developers will not gain the trust of emission-wary investors, government and most importantly, communities.
With this in mind, the G-res Tool is designed to help hydropower companies and researchers conveniently estimate and report net greenhouse gas emissions from their reservoirs online. The results can enable your project to meet Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) Hydropower Criteria and gain access to exclusive funding through green bonds.
Before the G-res Tool, there was no reliable and cost-effective way of estimating the emissions created from building a reservoir whilst factoring pre-existing conditions and naturally occurring emissions.
