Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

On the Batang Tongar river in West Pasaman, West Sumatra, a run-of-river type mini hydro power plant (3MW x 2 units) is constructed and the electricity is sold to PLN, a state-owned power company. The project reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by replacing the grid electricity. 38.73 GWh is expected to be sold annually.

The government’s electric power development plan aims at a renewable energy ratio of 23% by 2025 and 31% by 2050. This project contributes to a promotion and expansion of renewable energy.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

18,319 tCO2-eq./year

= reference CO2 emissions
 - project CO2 emissions

 ・Reference CO2 emissions
  = Quantity of the electricity generated by the project [MWh/year]
   x Emission factor [tCO2/MWh]
  =38,730 [MWh/year] × 0.473 [tCO2/MWh]

 ・Project CO2 emissions
  = 0 [tCO2/year]
