Project Development and Investment

Camco originates project opportunities and advances projects from concept and underwriting to commissioning and ongoing management. This could entail advancing a project though the early permitting, feed stock negotiations, off-take contracting (PPA, commodity sales and/or environmental credit sales), engineering, technology selection and financial structuring. In addition to greenfield project development, Camco has also acquired and re-positioned existing projects.

Camco has a broad appreciation and understanding of the technology choices available. We believe an agnostic approach to technology selection produces the lowest cost, lowest risk and highest quality end result - we use proven technologies that have a track-record and predictable long-term operating costs.

Our years of experience have shown that performance-based contracting is the best approach to create a cost-effective project. 

Though the waste-to-energy market technologies are similar, feed stocks, throughput, permitting constraints and commercial realities demand customized engineering and commercial solutions. Our approach reduces the overall risk for both financing and long-term operations.

WE UNDERSTAND THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
AND ITS MYRIAD OF RISKS

We invest our resources to help develop projects and commercial arrangements that are practical and financeable.​

 

WE DEVELOP BIOGAS PROJECTS THAT CONVERT WASTE STREAMS FROM:

  • Manure (dairy cow, poultry, swine)

  • Waste water (e.g. palm oil, tapioca, sugar cane)

  • Food waste

THE ENERGY PRODUCED CAN BE:

  • Sold to the grid as renewable energy, typically enjoying higher tariffs depending on national policy

  • Used on-site to displace higher GHG emission fuel (e.g. diesel, coal, etc.)

  • Sold as renewable gas, i.e compressed natural gas for use in transport or portable energy supply
