This papercentres on the estimation of carbon dioxide emissions in a Cameroon thermalpower plant called Dibamba Power Development Company, in such a way that theycan be included as part of Cameroon energy sector inventory or used by theDibamba Power Development Company to monitor its policy and technologyimprovements for mitigating climate change. We have estimated the emissionsusing national emission factors for the consumption of liquid fossil fuels andsimulated a mitigation of these emissions till 2018 using alternative fossilfuels and carbon neutral model. The results show that energy demand and carbondioxide emissions in 2012 are estimated to be 48.964 ktoe and 164.39 kt CO2 respectively. National emission factors for electricity generation areestimated to be 660.63 g-kWh. From 2012 to 2018, the thermal power plant willemit into the atmosphere 1298.42 kt CO2. These results also showthat the use of alternative fuels will reduce 59.22 kt CO2 per yearfor the same period while the use of the carbon neutral model will reduce atotal amount of 8.08 kt CO2. Finally, the total quantity of CO2 emission reduced for the period 2012 to 2018 will be 489.91 kt CO2.
