Project Location: Located in village Oslomej Kičevo Municipality in North Macedonia
Methodology: ACM0002: Grid-connected electricity generation from renewable sources – Version 20.0”
Description: Oslomej 80 MW Solar Power Plant Project (hereafter referred as “the proposed project”) is a solar power project, located in the village of Oslomej Kičevo Municipality in North Macedonia owned by a public-private partnership. The public partner will be JCS PPNM while the private partner is Fortis Energy. The annual gross electricity generation of the project activity is forecasted as 112,124,300 kWh. The spatial extent of the project boundary includes the project’s power plants and all power plants connected physically to the electricity system that the power plants are connected to. According to the applicable methodology, the baseline scenario has been identified as “the electricity delivered to the grid by the project activity that otherwise would have been generated by the operation of grid-connected power plants and by the addition of new generation sources”.
The purpose of the project is to generate electricity by using clean solar power resources to meet the national electricity demand. The project will contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions by displacing part of fossil fuel-fired power plants of the generated electricity by the Grid. The expected annual GHG emission reductions over the first crediting period are 83,292.88 tCO2e/yr, which will contribute to the alleviation of climate change effects.
