Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This project will install 14MW floating solar power system on three un-used water ponds in Vientiane. Lower temperature on water ponds enables more efficient power generation than on land. This power system has an ability to increase total output by suppressing negative effect caused by variation of each panel’s capability, and a function to cut power flow in case of submerge.

Electricity generated by solar system replaces grid electricity to reduce GHG emission.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

11,450 tCO2/year

= (Reference CO2 emissions) [tCO2/year]

       – (Project CO2 Emission) [tCO2/year]

= ((Reference Power consumption) [MWh/year]

     – Project Power consumption [MWh/year]))
