Top Third Ventures (TTV) provides its clients with cheap and quick access to carbon financing. Efficient cookstoves reduce the firewood or charcoal needed by a household to cook, thereby preventing emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. TTV measures the carbon dioxide its clients prevent and sells the reduced pollution in the form of a carbon credit. One carbon credit represents one metric ton of carbon dioxide not emitted. We have secured the rights to earn carbon credits from any efficient cookstove activity in any developing country for the next 28 years. Our carbon credit asset is eligible to sell on both voluntary and mandatory carbon markets. The Carbon Calculator on the right was developed by TTV to show you the value carbon credit revenue can add to your efficient cookstove operations. By entering some basic information about what you have been doing or plan to do, we can tell you if it makes sense to go after carbon credits and how much revenue you can expect. TTV ‘s Carbon Calculator displays the projected revenue from carbon credits in real-time as you change the parameters. The calculator is also connected to currency and carbon credit price databases to continuously provide up-to-date market information.
Start by choosing the country in which you currently sell or plan to sell the efficient stove. Countries that are not eligible are not listed. Then select some technical specifications about your efficient cookstove technology by estimating the performance and durability. Next, project how many you will sell per year and for how long. Your best guess, based on previous sales or future expectations, is fine. In any case, the calculator is designed to slightly underestimate the revenue generated from carbon credits to provide realistic expectations.
To see the projected revenue, choose the carbon credit price by selecting the market you want to sell to or entering a custom price. The voluntary market is the default buyer as the vast majority of carbon credits from cookstoves today are bought and sold on this market. Feel free to adjust your sales projections, durability, and other parameters to see how the revenue changes.
The total value and revenue estimates are all after TTV’s service fees, so what you see is what you get. To learn more about the services we provide and earning carbon credits through TTV, download our brochure or contact us through the tab on the left.
If you have a technology in mind and past sales or an idea of your projected volumes, plug them in to see what happens. We want everyone to be able to use the calculator so if you do not have a stove yet and are not sure how many you will sell, our typical client has a stove that saves half the fuel, lasts 2-3 years, and sells between 3,000 and 5,000 per year.
