Known as the Emerald on the Equator, Indonesia is blessed with abundant energy resources. Our country has enormous potentials in renewable energy development to sustain National Energy Resilience. Accordingly, Indonesia has been encouraged to focus on renewable energy sources and reinforce the usage of clean energy. Renewable energy has been greatly developed in recent years, thus lowering the overall generation cost, increasing popularity, and improving efficiency.
Advances in renewable energy technology provides better opportunities for Indonesia to develop its abundant resources. It requires an integrated strategy to promote the use of renewable energy and empower local resources which are plentiful on a large scale.
Chairman of The 7th Indonesia EBTKE ConEx 2018
The dependency on high carbon emission fuels, such as oil and coal, in fulfilling Indonesia’s energy consumption is still high. Moreover, due to the declining reserves, on top of the domestic production, Indonesia has to import crude oil and finished products up to 50% of the daily requirement. Such a situation puts the National Energy Resilience in high risk.
Quoting from the President of the Republic of Indonesia’s speech during the Paris COP 21, the Government of Indonesia has committed to lower the environmental impact due to carbon emission and to reinforce the development of locally available renewable resources to meet energy sustainability. This commitment requires concrete action by every stakeholder in the country.
