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.
As a consequence, accelerating the development of renewable and clean energy is currently considered as one of the critical strategies for Indonesia to deliver its commitment to the global community. Every obstacle and barrier needs to be resolved in an utmost appropriate approach. In order to show our continuous effort in promoting renewable energy, we collaborate with related parties to once again present the 7th IndoEBTKE ConEx 2018 on 29 – 31 August 2018 at Balai Kartini, Jakarta, Indonesia.
The 7th IndoEBTKE ConEx 2018 is an annual conference and exhibition of renewable energy and conservation of energy (EBTKE) in Indonesia jointly organized by the Directorate General of EBTKE and The Indonesian Renewable Energy Society (METI). The theme of this year’s event is “Investment Breakthrough to Achieve Renewable Energy Target”.
This event is highly acclaimed as an annual forum of its kind in Indonesia to bring together every relevant stakeholder — not only from government officials, but also from industries, business sectors, universities, researchers, mass media, Non-Governmental Organizations and the public to share their experiences, knowledge and best practices, as well as to showcase the latest products and services in renewable energy and clean energy industry.
Through the 7th IndoEBTKE ConEx 2018, we hope that everyone can take benefit from sharing experiences and knowledge on how to overcome the challenges, take opportunities, build professional relationship, strengthen cooperation amongst related parties, as well as to synergize the programs in delivering clean energy whilst sustaining energy resilience for the nation.
Allow me to take this opportunity to express my highest appreciation and gratitude to the speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and all of the 7th IndoEBTKE ConEx 2018 committees and event organizer for their hard work and contribution to make this conference a great success. I also hope that you will find this conference and exhibition valuable and are able to make a significant improvement in enabling the development of renewable energy in Indonesia.
I am looking forward to welcoming your participation in the 7th Indo EBTKE ConEx 2018.
Chairman The 7th IndoEBTKE ConEx 2018
