Abstract:The greenhouse gas emissions of photo voltaics and diesel generators during their complete life cycle have been assessed and were found to be 40 g CO2-eq per kWh and 850 g CO2-eq per kWh for PV and diesel generators respectively. For the a chosen reference load of Papua Diving and RARCC this resulted in 4 kg CO2-eq/day for the PV system and 485 kg CO2-eq for the diesel generators. On average, the diesel consumption was found to be 6385 Litres per month and the gasoline consumption for the boats 12000 Litres per month, in total for the two resorts. For the boats, the greenhouse gas emissions were calculated to be roughly 28605 kg CO2-eq/month, equivalent to the emissions of 66 cars. Big energy consumers were mapped and it was found that the air conditioners take up more than one third of the total load. Several applications like absorption air conditioning and ocean energy look very promising but need more research attention before it can be concluded whether they are feasible or not.
