Pilot Project for Commercial-Scale Production of Biofuels:

Project to establish commercial-scale production of biofuels from naturally established plantations of the fast-growing grass, Arundo Donax, located in areas prone to flooding.  Project would produce fuel for use for the production of power for export to the grid to reduce power now imported from a neighboring country.  The biomass fuel would be used by the Belize Co-generation Company, which generates power form sugarcane waste during the milling season. The cogeneration facility operates for about 6 months during the year. The fuel produced from the fast growing grass will allow the facility to operate years round and provide firm power

Feasibility Study on Energy Efficiency in Government Buildings:

The Government Complex in Belmopan, consists of a number of buildings which are cooled by individual split units. The project would undertake a feasibility study to evaluate options for reduced cooling costs and energy savings, including construction of cogeneration plant that would provide base load power, and cooling; and solar thermal coolers

Feasibility Study on Distributed Generation to Generate Base Load Power for Grid Connection:

Community waste-to- energy projects; the dispersed nature of Belizean communities is resulting in solid waste management becoming a major challenge for local government, resulting in high cost of collection and transport over long distances to the nearest landfill.  Feasibility studies will identify systems that are operational at the scale of 500-2000 residences than can generate reliable base load power for grid connection.

Belize Biogas from Wastewater and Manure:

The Government of Belize and SIDSDOCK are developing an anaerobic digestion/biogas project at the waste water facility in San Pedro Ambergris Caye.  The project will use livestock manure from Spanish Lookout.    The developers plan to negotiate a PPA with Belize Water Services Limited (BWSL). The project will produce biogas for electricity, fertilizer resulting from the sludge by product for sale to local farmers and carbon offsets for sale in the carbon market

Belize Biofuels from Three Differing Feedstock:

The Government of Belize and SIDSDOCK are developing a biofuels production project using feedstocks from:  acacia mangium, arundo donax and attalea cohune.  The proposed output from the pyrolysis processing would produce approximately 2.7 million barrels of bio-oil.   The bio-oil would be produced from a supply of 1 million tons of biomass based on productivity of 20 tons/acre from approximately 50,000 acres

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) Feasibility Study:

Feasibility study for a 20 MW OTEC Facility; the island of San Pedro, located off the north east coast of Belize, is the country’s major tourism location. It imports power and fresh water from the main land. The OTEC feasibility study would focus on production to meet local demand and export to the main land to substitute for imported fossil fueled power, from a neighbouring country

Installation of Solar Powered Systems to Provide Desalinated Water, Ice, Cold Storage, and Lighting:

Installation of Facility to support local fisher folks. The systems are to provide 1 ton of ice per day, cold storage space to support the fishing industry in light of ongoing increases in the price of fuel needed to transport water and ice, to offshore base locations

Demonstration Project for a Low Energy Waste Water Treatment System:

The majority of small communities in island states do not have waste water treatment systems. Waste water generated in households and institutions is disposed of usually by septic treatment systems. Increasing the use of the septic systems are proving to be a major source of subsurface fresh water pollution, and coastal environmental degradation. Alternate waste water system modular in design that uses active biofilms for the decomposition of organic matter, requiring significantly less energy input than the conventional sewage systems, and with significant less pollution footprint than septic systems will be demonstrated to provide evidence of feasibility, comparative energy requirement and potential contribution to water resource availability as part of climate change adaptation
