Staff Writer | July 21, 2016
Sharp and Shigemitsu Shoji, together with a local Mongolian partner will jointly participate in the first large scale solar power plant business in Mongolia.
Energy in Mongolia   Operation for the next 25 years
Those companies reached an agreement between all parties and completed the signing ceremony in Ulaanbaatar. Construction of the project will start later this month and the commercial operation date is scheduled on this December.

This project has been approved by the Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects under the Joint Crediting Mechanism operated by the Ministry of Environment of Japan.

By introducing Sharp's technology and experience in solar power generation, clean energy can be supplied and reduction of greenhouse gas emission can be contributed to Mongolia, where coal fire power plants are still heavily relied on as their main energy source.

In addition, the project will contribute to Japan's greenhouse gas emission reduction target through the Joint Crediting Mechanism.

The installed capacity of PV modules for this solar power plant will be 10MW and the annual expected power generation is 14,182MWh/year, which is expected to contribute to the reduction of approximately 14,746tCO2/year of greenhouse gas emission.

Sharp will supply PV modules, mounting structures, and other balance of systems such as inverters together with system designing and engineering services for the project.

Shigemitsu Shoji will support the joint management and operation of the solar power plant for the next 25 years with the help of their expertise on solar power plant operation based on their experiences in Japan.
