Pacific Hydro, an Australian-based renewable energy producer, plans to start selling (PDF) carbon credits from a hydropower project in Chile to buyers in the European Union, The International Herald Tribune reports.
Pacific Hydro, which is owned by the pension funds manager Industry Funds Management, and a partner registered the 155-megawatt La Higuera project with a Dutch authority, allowing the sale of credits in the EU once production starts by the end of 2008.
