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)
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
