Government Launches Digital Platform Across EBTKE to Accelerate Renewable Energy Investment

Jakarta, Timerilis.com – Indonesia has committed to reducing GHG emissions by 29% unconditionally and 41% conditionally by 2030.

However, there are several challenges to mobilizing private sector investment (domestic and foreign direct investment) and the public in developing EBT in Indonesia. One of them is the limitation of integrated information media that can guide relevant stakeholders in efforts to encourage investment in the EBT sector.

To actualize this, the Directorate General of New Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (EBTKE) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in collaboration with UNDP’s Market Transformation for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (MTRE3) Project, released the New, Renewable and Energy Conservation Information and Investment Services Digital Platform (LINTAS EBTKE).

“This digital platform is used for companies and the public in submitting information, requesting information, complaints, and investment in the EBTKE sector,” said Secretary of the Directorate General of EBTKE Syahid Junaidi.

The implementation of the MTRE3 Project with UNDP Indonesia is a form of partnership between the government and international institutions to support the transition program to clean energy.

This project receives grant support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), making MTRE3 a forum for implementing activities that support environmental preservation and encourage efforts to transform the EBT sector market by providing support for strengthening investment information systems and increasing capacity regarding EBT to local governments.

“Since its implementation in 2017, the MTRE3 Project has provided various benefits to the community in four pilot provinces namely Riau, Jambi, West Sulawesi, and East Nusa Tenggara (NTT),” he said.

One of the challenges faced by the MTRE3 Project in encouraging increased private and public sector investment in EBT development in Indonesia is the limited integrated information media.

“Information that is easily accessible and integrated can serve as a guide for stakeholders and spurt investment growth in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors and market transformation. Therefore, the MTRE3 Project carries out Integrated Market Service Center (IMSC) activities,” explained Syahid.

Going forward, LINTAS EBTKE is expected to further encourage business mobilization and investment in EBTKE development, to support the government’s efforts to achieve Indonesia’s national targets.
