Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This project aims the reduction of CO2 emission by installing 37 MW solar power system on the rooftop of the vehicle factory of Toyota Motor Thailand Co., Ltd. (TMT) located in Samutprakarn & Chachoengsao and engine factory of Siam Toyota Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (STM) located in Chonburi in eastern Bangkok.
Electricity generated by solar power system is consumed in-house and replaces part of grid electricity consumption.
CO2 emissions are also reduced by replacing the existing melting furnace in STM with a high efficient medium-frequency induction melting furnace.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

19,553 tCO2-eq./year

Solar system: 16,858 [tCO2/year]
= ((Reference Power Consumption) [MWh/year]
    − 0 [MWh/year])) × (Emission Factor) [tCO2/MWh]
High efficiency melting furnace: 2,625 [tCO2/year]
= (Reference CO2 Emissions) [tCO2/year]
    − (Project CO2 Emissions) [tCO2/year]
