Host Country: BangladeshJCM Feasibility Study (FS)

Solar Power Generation with Long-Life Storage Battery in Non-Electrified Regions

FS Entity: Sony Energy Devices

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

Solar photovoltaic power generation and long-life storage battery* systems will be installed in non-electrified regions of Bangladesh. The project will employ the system to make effective use of renewable energy generation.
As a result, GHG will be reduced compared with conventional power generation methods based on fossil fuels.
At the same time, the system will help to improve daily life and hygienic conditions for residents.

Draft JCM Methodology

In this project, the amount of CO2 emission reductions are equal to reference emissions, because this project substitutes electricity from small-scale generators using fossil fuels with electricity from the photovoltaic power generation systems. The reference emissions are CO2 emissions from small-scale generators using fossil fuels.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

1.7tCO2/yr (for one system with 2kW PV system)
→ 1,700tCO2/yr as potentials: 1,000 systems are assumed to be installed.
← Calculation:
consumed electricity from long-life storage battery (kWh) / generating efficiency of small-scale generators using fossil fuels (%) x CO2 emission factor of the fossil fuels (kgCO2/MJ).
