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 PTM/DANIDA entitled “Study on Grid Connected Electricity Baselines in Malaysia” assessed the overall average emission factor for Malaysia and Sabah to be 0.69kgCO2eq/kWh. This was calculated using a methodology adopted by United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and is based on the combined margin for power generation.
