QT is a leading expert in helping companies and project developers navigate the complicated UNFCCC process. QT can readily help clean energy businesses and large emitters of GHGs determine how likely they are to get CDM credits. QT also analyzes the potential impacts of CER revenue on a project's return on investment. QT's role is to draft the extensive documentation required for UN approval, submit comments to the CDM Methodologies Panel and Executive Board, and help broker deals with potential buyers of CERs once a methodology is approved. QT also helps negotiate the actual emissions reductions contracts. QT will do all of this upfront - with no payment required. QT only gets payment when a carbon deal is signed. As such, the risk to project developer is virtually nothing.
QT has developed ten methodologies for the UNFCCC process. For every one of these projects, QT drafted the Project Design Document, the baseline and monitoring methodology, as well as help identify the buyer and draft the carbon offsets sales contract. All of these projects have additional benefits, including the significant saving of water in India and China, two water-stressed countries. The electricity-sector projects in Ghana will help reduce strain on Ghana's power grid, which like many in the developing world, faces too much demand and too little supply.
The CDM process deals with projects in Asia, Africa and Latin America. For projects in the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, carbon trading comes under the Joint Implementation mechanism. QT can also assist in the development of JI projects.
