Introduction of PV-diesel Hybrid System at Fastening Manufacturing Plant

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This project introduces a hybrid solar-diesel power system to a garment fastener manufacturing plant, which currently uses captive diesel power generators.
Normally, the share of a solar power generation to a capacity of a diesel generator is technically limited to about 20% because of the limitation caused by power-variation of photovoltaic module arrays. However, the fuel save controller used in this system enables the percentage to be raised up to 60% thanks to electricity control, achieving a greater reduction of fuel consumption by the diesel generators.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

265 tCO2/ year

GHG emission reductions = Quantity of electricity generated by the PV system in a year x emission factor of diesel power generators
  • Project’s electricity generation: 498 MWh/year
  • Emission factor = 0.533 tCO2/MWh
  • All the electricity is consumed in the factory, and there will be no surplus from the PV system.
