Aldyen started to work on market-driven strategies to reduce atmospheric carbon concentrations. Having gathered together an "emission reduction credit" or "ERC" buyers group, Aldyen developed and executed the world's first major forward ERC purchase agreement to finance carbon sequestration in agricultural soils, as well as the first ERC sales-financed carbon capture and storage project. Aldyen is a co-founder and director of carbon economics at Nori, a carbon removal marketplace launched in 2018. At Nori, she leads the development of methodologies to establish Carbon Removal Certificates and recruits early CRC buyers and suppliers into the marketplace. A small-business developer and consultant for over 40 years, Donnelly started to work on market-driven strategies to reduce atmospheric carbon concentrations in the mid-1990s. Her projects include using emission-reduction credits to finance carbon sequestration in agricultural soils, a stationary fuel-cell application, and carbon-capture and storage projects, among others. Donnelly also co-authored Canadian province Nova Scotia’s 2009 GHG Emissions Regulations, the first of its kind in North America.
There are few things more resilient/predictable than US per capita gasoline demand, which has not shown any statistically significant change--despite price changes--since 1980. -Aldyen Donnelly
