Advanced Industry Workshop
Carbon Farming ADVANCED INDUSTRY WorkshopOver the 2 days of our Carbon Farming Conference and Expo, many issues and potentials will be discussed. You will hear about how the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) has worked so far. Who won a contract – What prices were realized etc. NOW, lets make Direct Action work for you and/or your organisation.
This workshop is designed for those who wish to take the discussion from the 'theory' of the ERF to lets take part in a project to potentially bid into the next round of the ERF.
Its is suitable for those who:
- Understand the basics of the ERF - the language, the way it may work
- Have an understanding of what role the methodology plays and how this can move to a project.
- Wish to ensure that Farmers stay in the 'carbon market' winners list.
- Wish to proceed to a project level understanding - even if just in theory.
- Wish to be able to decipher a good offer from a poor one or how to ‘go it alone’ in a project
In a half day 'workshop' we will take the issues from the conference and work through to some solutions to empower you in the following:
- What structures might be good for your project?
- Discuss barriers and potentials.
- Discuss methodology- what is available, is a suitable one coming, how do we put others on the agenda?
- Do I have to speak 'meth' to understand how to do it
- How do we make methods more accessible?
- Costs - How do we drive them down?
- Compliance - Verify , monitor, Submit offset and audit reports - Making it reasonable
- Is a 25 year credit feasible?
- Legal outline
- Can I even do it on my own?
- Time between begin project and payment
- Some structures being offered by project developers - Buy the land, lease the land etc
- Marketing - Can I sell wholesale direct to emitters or to consumers? Can we go outside 'Direct Action' to get a good price?
