Small-scale Nuclear Reactors Included in Indonesia-America Coalition

Jakarta, Timerilis.com – The Indonesian government through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and the United States signed an MoU on Clean Energy Working group Indonesia-United States.

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Global Markets and Director General of the US and Foreign Commercial Service Arun Venkataraman and Secretary General of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Rida Noble signed the agreement.

The Working Group is conducted to support Indonesia’s electrification and power development goals. With an initial focus on helping Indonesia achieve a 23% energy mix from renewable energy by 2025 and reach NZE 2060 or sooner.

To follow up on this signing, the Government of Indonesia invites US businesses to collaborate, not only for investment but also to improve energy transition technologies in Indonesia.

“In terms of regulations, Presidential Regulation No. 112 of 2022, which has been issued, is a form of the Government’s commitment in efforts to accelerate the development of EBT nationally,” said Rida Jakarta, Thursday (16/3/2023).

One form of cooperation with America is the construction of nuclear reactors on a small scale, Carbon Capture Utilization Storage (CCUS), and Carbon Capture Storage (CCS).

“Among them are related to electric cars or electric vehicles, then as I said earlier regarding small modular nuclear power plant reactors and CCUS and CCS,” said Rida.

Arun Venkataraman said, in this trade mission, 16 American companies came together with Arun. One of the most important sectors is where the United States and Indonesia should strive for growth with other countries.

“Of course, it is clean and renewable energy under the MoU that Secretary-General Rita and I just signed. We have outlined several areas of cooperation, where our countries will collaborate to achieve Indonesia’s clean energy ambitions. These include small modular reactor technology, carbon capture and storage, grid resilience, and more,” Arun said. (Eva/Rd)
