In addition to helping project developers become potential sellers of CDM credits, QT can help identify potential buyers as well.
Identify projects: For buyers of carbon offsets interested in specific kinds of projects, QT can use its network throughout Eastern Europe and the developing world to identify projects tailored to the buyer's interests. Particular buyer interests may include specifics on price, location, social benefits generated from a project, etc.
Facilitate the partnership: QT helps arrange the partnership between the buyer of the emissions reductions and local partners.
Offer advice on the local context: Each country is in its own state of development in terms of Kyoto compliance - arranging registries, developing legal frameworks for CDM or JI projects, etc. QT can advise buyers on the states of development of Kyoto-type regimes in various countries.
Development of carbon contracts: QT, having negotiated carbon trades for Kyoto compliance, can help sellers enter into emissions reductions purchase agreements (ERPAs). QT helps sellers understand the general terms of an ERPA including assessing risks the seller will face (penalties for non-delivery, etc.). QT advises sellers on these risks and works to help mitigate them as much as possible.
Financing: QT maintains relationships with a number of investors who will finance projects in return for a portion of the carbon credits generated.
