Potential of NEW RENEWABLE ENERGY (EBT) and its Progress in Indonesia, Renewable energy is energy generated from energy resources that are not going to run out and be sustainable if managed properly. Renewable Energy (EBT) continue to be developed and optimized by changing the mindset (mind-set) that renewable energy is not just as an alternative energy from BB fossils, but it should be a buffer of national energy supply with a portion of EBT> 17% by 2025 (Per Pres No. 5/2006 on national energy Policy) in the form of biofuel> 5%, geothermal> 5%, more EBT> 5%, and liquefied coal> 2%, while other energy is still supplied by oil <20%, Natural Gas> Coal 30% and> 33%.
Although the government’s efforts to develop renewable energy in Indonesia has long been done, but the results until 2015 are still very minimal. Even compared to smaller countries such as Sri Lanka, Indonesia still lags behind. Therefore, the government began to aggressively re-develop non-fossil energy.
According to sources of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources recently the use of renewable energy in Sri Lanka is nearly 50 percent. While in Indonesia the use of environmentally friendly energy is only about 11 percent. As the target by 2025 is only 23 percent of the total energy used. To achieve these objectives, since 2014 the Ministry of Energy did not treat the extent of renewable energy development as policy attachment. This fuel is becoming mainstream in energy policy.
To boost renewable energy, the government also implemented several policies such as improved regulation. For example, the Government plans to establish a specialized agency of renewable energy.
Government committed to achieve 25/30 vision, namely the use of EBT 25% in 2030, (originally predicted 25/25, but in practice not be achieved). In January 2012, UN Secretary-General to encourage the world use of Renewable Energy (ET) twofold (from 15% to 30%) by 2030, especially developing countries now controls at least 50% of global capacity EBT.
Therefore in this edition BIZTEKA – PT. CCI will review more about the potential of renewable energy and its progress in Indonesia until 2015. This research is based on primary and secondary data. The primary data is obtained from interviews with the parties related to the industry, while secondary data is obtained from government agencies such as the Ministry of Energy, BPPT, LIPI, LAPAN, the Investment Coordinating Board as well as the bank data in CCI.
