Award winning Cap-Op Energy provides tools to reduce emissions and costs
By Tracey Murray
When the Alberta Government introduced a new carbon offset protocol aimed at providing an incentive to reduce methane venting from pneumatic equipment earlier this year, Cap-Op Energy was poised to take advantage of the new rules.
Headquartered in Calgary, Cap-Op is an offset and carbon consultant that started operations in 2012. Early on, Cap-Op saw the large amount of data and long-term record keeping required to capture offsets as a challenge that needed to be overcome.
“Some producers that invested in energy efficiency when commodity prices were high, left a lot of offset money on the table by not properly documenting their projects and keeping better records. We knew we had to build better systems.” said Kevin Heal, Director of Business Development at Cap-Op.
