It is undeniable that energy transition into renewable energy is a current concern of government, associations and industry players. Investors also put a high expectation on companies to take fast initiatives to support energy transition. Renewable energy can be a solution in line with the government’s strategic plan for 2022-2024. Indonesia has a 23% target for renewable energy technology proportion of total energy production in 2025.

Eddie Widiono, Founder of Prakarsa Jaringan Cerdas Indonesia (PJCI) said, “To achieve government target on renewable energy, investors are crucial in providing financing. There is a challenge where innovation needed in terms of energy accessibility and clean technology in line with the spirit of Indonesia as the executor of the G20 presidency”. Regarding this, PJCI is increasingly promoting “smart grid technology” in supporting energy security and renewable energy through technological innovation.

Based on katadata.com, (sorted by energy source) The 2021 national energy consumption puts electrical energy in the top 3 out of  8 portions with a total of 18.52%. Meanwhile, the 2021 realization of renewable energy has reached 11,152MW and is targeted to achieve 11,791 MW in 2022. To meet the target, smart grid technology is forecast to contribute to its growth. Implementation of the technology has been done by the Pembangkitan Jawa-Bali.

Related to the above, Mustiko Saleh, Chairman of ASPERMIGAS said “Currently, oil and gas will continue its production and used mainly for petrochemical plant raw materials. Through Indonesia potential resources and EBT technology growth, we predict that in 2035 we can reduce fossil energy by around 60-70%. It strengthens Indonesia commitment on clean energy and sustainable development.” Bambang Tjahjono, General Chair of Asosiasi Jasa Pertambangan Indonesia (ASPINDO), agrees that the production and distribution of mining products also need innovation development and technology to support the acceleration of energy transition.

Dandung Sri Harninto, as the Deputy Secretary General of BPP Gapensi, also conveyed how the construction industry took part in the post-pandemic growth, the renewable energy program launched by the government has supported construction service entrepreneurs to be more active in growing the investment climate, and participate in the global arena, one of which is through the development of application of new renewable energy technology & energy conversion, including developing innovative products based on renewable energy.
