CO2 Avoidance

As electricity generation from renewable resources displaces the generation of power from conventional fossil fuels, the generation of RE therefore reduces the overall greenhouse gas emissions from the fossil fuel power stations connected to the grid system.

A study by MGTC entitled “Study on Grid Connected Electricity Baselines in Malaysia (Year 2012, 2013 & 2014)” assessed the overall average emission factor for Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan.

CO2 are made under the calculation of Energy Production (MWh) baseline by year as follows :

  • 2012 : Baseline CO2 for Peninsular - 0.741 tCO2/ MWh, Sabah and Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan : 0.546 tCO2/ MWh
  • 2013: Baseline CO2 for Peninsular - 0.742 tCO2/ MWh, Sabah and Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan : 0.533 tCO2/ MWh
  • 2014: Baseline CO2 for Peninsular - 0.694 tCO2/ MWh, Sabah and Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan : 0.536 tCO2/ MWh
