Transition To Renewable Energy For Sustainable Indonesia

Transition To Renewable Energy For Sustainable Indonesia

New Renewable Energy in Indonesia

Indonesia has a fairly huge potential for New Renewable Energy (EBT), including mini/micro hydro of 450 MW, 50 GW of biomass, solar energy of 4.80 kWh/m2/day, wind energy of 3-6 m/s, and nuclear energy of 3 GW. Indonesia targeting to achieve a 23 percent increment by 2025 the Renewable Energy (EBT). This was stated by the Director of State Wealth Policy Formulation of the Ministry of Finance, Encep Sudarwan.

According to him, since 2011, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) have collaborated in building EBT infrastructure for State-Owned Goods (BMN), as part of efforts to make the energy transition in Indonesia.

“With this energy transition, we want to reduce the use of energy sources from fossils such as coal and others, and use EBT more,” said Director of State Wealth Policy Formulation at the Ministry of Finance, Encep Sudarwan, in the DJKN Discussion ‘Management of BMN in Support of New Renewable Energy

New Renewable Energy in 2025

The development of BMN EBT infrastructure with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Encep added, is very important because Indonesia targets the implementation of renewable energy of 23 percent by 2025.

Encep also said the value of BMN EBT infrastructure at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources reached 26.67 trillion rupiahs. The types of programs that have been carried out include the provision of energy-efficient solar lamps, public street lighting, the construction of a Centralized Solar Power Plant, a Rooftop Solar Power Plant, and a Micro-hydro Power Plant.

According to him, BMN EBT infrastructure is also intended to meet the needs of people who are not yet connected to the electricity grid, in border areas, underdeveloped areas, outermost islands, and isolated areas.

“State-owned goods in the form of renewable energy infrastructure are given to parties in need through a scheme for transfer of use status, grants, and central capital participation,” said the Head of the Center for State Property Management, Secretariat General of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Sumartono.

New Renewable Energy in 4 Provinces

The APDAL program, he continued, was carried out to facilitate electricity for 433 villages spread across 4 provinces, namely Papua, West Papua, Maluku, and East Nusa Tenggara.

“In 2022, the government targets to build 33,476 units of State Property in the form of infrastructure with a budget of Rp483 billion,” said Sumartono.
