The prospect of developing renewable energy in Indonesia is considered to have great potential. Moreover, the government has made renewable energy a priority agenda for current energy development in the future.
This opportunity was captured by PT Surya Utama Nuansa (SUN Energy), which continues to innovate in providing affordable technology for renewable energy. As one of the solar panel project developers, SUN Energy sees opportunities from the use of new and renewable energy in various industrial sectors to show an increase from year to year.
SUN Energy Head of Sales, Donny Sjarifudin, said that his company recorded an increase in demand for solar power system installations by nearly 40% compared to the previous year. This demand includes on-grid, off-grid, and hybrid installations, throughout Indonesia.
For this year, the company has successfully installed solar power systems in more than 15 institutions, including government agencies, industrial and commercial segments, and higher education institutions. By the end of 2020, the solar power system installation built by SUN Energy in Lampung will become the largest PLTS laboratory among all universities in Indonesia.
“We fully support the government’s initiative to increase the use of clean energy through collaboration and partnerships in various sectors. We provide access to technology and offer integrated solutions for customers, from concepts, construction, licensing, and zero rupiah financing models so that consumers can achieve energy efficiency. up to 30%, “said Donny in Jakarta on Thursday (24/9/2020).
Through its total project contract capacity, SUN Energy continued to reduce more than 1.5 million tons of harmful carbon emissions. He also hopes that he can continue to contribute to the acceleration of the low-carbon energy transition, and invite business people to use clean energy through the installation of solar power systems as a form of responsibility to save the environment.
“We will continue to innovate to provide access to clean energy for the people of Indonesia,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Director of Various New and Renewable Energy of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Harris said that Indonesia is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 by 29% without assistance and 41% with international support.
“Of course, including from the energy sector, the government has set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 314 million tons of CO2 by 2030,” said Harris.
On the other hand, President of the Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (IBCSD) Shinta Kamdani said, the decline in the cost of renewable energy has created new opportunities for its use, including in the commercial and industrial sectors.
“As demand for clean energy continues to increase in developing countries, the industrial sector has led a commitment to using clean energy in its operations,” he concluded.
