Continued Support for Renewable Energy Integration in Indonesia
Energynautics commissioned by GIZ to provide support to Indonesian power system stakeholders for the next two years
Indonesia’s national energy plan targets to reach 23 percent of renewables by 2025. It is important to achieve this goal to cover future energy demand and in order to meet Indonesia’s commitment under the 2015 Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent by 2030.
Against this background, the Directorate General of New Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (EBTKE), in cooperation with the German International Cooperation GIZ GmbH, acting on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), have decided to jointly implement the 1,000 Islands – Renewable Energy for Electrification Programme (REEP).
Energynautics, together with partners Cadmus and ABO Wind, provided technical support during the first REEP stage, starting in late 2017. The project was concluded successfully at the end of 2020, and a second stage was subsequently initiated by GIZ. In 2021, Energynautics successfully bid for the corresponding consultancy assignment and will serve as GIZ’s primary technical consultants in REEP Stage 2 for the coming two years. Energynautics partner with Indonesian consultancy PT Castlerock in this project, as a strong local partner is crucially important especially due to persisting COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Energynautics and Castlerock will support GIZ, Indonesian state utility PLN and other Indonesian power system stakeholders and government agencies in all questions relating to renewable energy in Indonesian power systems. The main focus will be on the following issues:
- Development and execution of capacity building programmes for PLN and government stakeholders;
- Technical support for PLN UIKL Sulawesi, with Sulawesi being the only Indonesian main grid already operating with a significant share of renewable energy (hydro, PV and wind);
- Support for sustainable development and PV integration in the islands of Nusa Tenggara Timur.
