CPI has set up pilot bamboo-based biomass power plants on Mentawai islands which resulted in reliable electricity to 1,200 households in three villages, each of which has their own power plant. Furthermore: The sustainability of the mini-grids is high: Each village is realizing about 3,000 tonnes CO2e/year from emission avoidance and carbon sequestration due to new bamboo planting.

  • Fuel characteristics: <1% ash/tar & calorific value: 4000 kcal/kg.
  • Planted once and harvested for > 50 years.
  • GHG emission reduction up to 3000 tons CO2e/year/village.
