PT Cascadiant Indonesia announced today that its Managed Energy Service has provided over 2,000,000 hours of green energy for Indonesia’s leading wireless operators. This is the first such milestone for any green energy deployment in the world’s fourth largest nation.
To date, this significant milestone has generated in excess of 5,300 megawatts of green energy, has abated over 17,000 tons of CO2 and helped Indonesia to avoid the use and importation of over 6,500,000 liters of diesel fuel by replacing it with domestically produced hydrogen and methanol fuel stocks.
This achievement fully complements the latest Paris climate agreement, “Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” adopted by 193 countries and is a very welcome development. It has however been two years since CO2 levels reached 400 parts per million setting the global benchmark. The last time the worldwide carbon level was most likely that high was two million years ago. The Paris agreement clearly represents the recognition by the 193 countries that immediate and concrete action is long overdue.
Cascadiant applauds the recent developments and ambitious goals from Paris. “It is time to turn all the talk into action and for governments and companies alike to aggressively seek out alternatives to fossil fuels,” said Marshall Towe, Founder and CEO of Cascadiant. “The broad based adoption of Cascadiant’s solution by the operators in Indonesia clearly demonstrates that they work, are benefiting the environment and are providing tremendous value to our customers.”
“These are commercially viable and very effective ways for companies to eliminate CO2,” Towe continued. “Building on this success and accelerating real environmental benefits will require action from companies, such as those in the wireless industry, to put a stop to using 100 year-old polluting technologies, become leaders in corporate social responsibility and do the right thing by moving to green energy much faster and more aggressively.”
