In our paper we will compare grid-connected PV systems with fossil fuel based electricity within electricity infrastructures at Indonesian islands. Our approach is based on geographic mapping of the irradiance potential (kWh/m2/year), electrification rates on islands (%), performance prediction of grid-connected PV systems (kWh/kWp) and the CO2 reduction potential (g/kWh) of grid-connected PV systems in the Indonesian archipelago in the year 2011. So far, extensive studies on grid-connected PV systems for island electrification in Indonesia are lacking, and as such the results will be relevant for the realization of a pilot grid-connected photovoltaic system of 35kWp in Jayapura, situated in the Indonesian province of Papua, since in this province the electrical energy demand is growing. In this study we presented a method to determine the potential of grid connected PV in Indonesia. The total potential is about 94 TWh/year and the required installed capacity is around 80 GWp, based on PV modules with an efficiency of 15%. By using the full potential of grid connected PV 3.0 Mt CO2 emissions can be saved.
