Host Country: IndonesiaJCM Feasibility Study (FS)

Solar Power System at Off-Grid Cell Towers

FS Entity: PricewaterhouseCoopers

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

Achieving reductions in CO2 emissions through the replacement of diesel generators with solar power generators in mobile telecoms base stations.

Contribution to Sustainable Development:
  • Energy Security: Demonstrates energy efficiency and the use of green power in the telecoms sector
  • Supporting Remote Communities: Solar power mobile base stations provide reliable remote telecommunication for communities in rural and remote areas

Draft JCM Methodology

Applicable JCM methodology will be developed based on the two approved small-scale CDM methodologies:
AMS-I.A "Electricity generation by the user"
AMS-I.F "Renewable electricity generation for captive use and mini-grid"

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

Estimated CO2 emission reductions in Indonesia, based on assumed installation of 10,000 new mobile base stations per year.
  • Estimated GHG reductions: 83tCO2/year, in case of 1 BTS
  • GHG reduction potential: 41,300tCO2/year, in case of 500 BTS
