Project Brief

The proposed project activity is the installation of a new grid-connected 300 MWAC Solar power plant/unit at the site where no renewable power plant was operating prior to the implementation of the project activity (It is a greenfield plant13). The project activity is solar power project, which is implemented in, Village Lakhasar, Tehsil Pokhran, District Jaisalmer, Rajasthan by Eden Renewable CITE Private Limited.

The electricity generated from project activity (operational solar power plant) is connected to the Indian grid. The project activity thus reduces the anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) associated with equivalent amount of electricity generation from the existing grid connected power plants (mostly fossil fuel based) and from addition of new generation sources into the grid.

As the project activity complies to the definition of a Greenfield power plant, therefore the baseline scenario as per paragraph 22 of Section 5.2.1 of applied methodology is “electricity delivered to the grid by the project activity would have otherwise been generated by the operation of grid-connected power plants and by the addition of new generation sources”, as described in the combined margin (CM) calculations described in “TOOL07: Tool to calculate the emission factor for an electricity system”.

Additional Information

The annual emission calculation for this project activity is 729,398 TCO2e.
