Indonesia plays an important role in NRE needs

Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Arifin Tasrif said Indonesia will play an important role in saving the earth and becoming a source of new and renewable energy needs for the world.

Minister Arifin made the statement during the Climate Leaders Message event which was virtually monitored in Jakarta on Thursday.

“We deserve to be optimistic because Indonesia will play an important role in saving the earth and become a source of new and renewable energy needs for the world,” he said.

The report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change calls on all countries of the world to take action to reduce the opportunities of climate change, in particular the reduction of greenhouse gas or carbon dioxide emissions must be done massively so that the scenario of an increase in the temperature of the earth above 1.5 degrees Celsius over the next decade.

The climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in early November will formulate the commitment of all nations of the world to prevent earth from disaster.

Everyone will create a roadmap to reduce the effects of greenhouse gases.

“Indonesia has been a country from the start that insisted on participating in efforts to prevent climate change,” Arifin said.

Individually, Indonesia will reduce tailpipe emissions by 29 percent by 2030. If this step is taken together or in collaboration with the global community, the commitment to reduce tailpipe emissions can be achieved. increased to 41 percent.

Arifin explained that the energy sector plays a major role in reducing exhaust gas emissions into the Earth’s atmosphere.

According to him, Indonesia has started to reduce exhaust emissions by using bioenergy; encourage the use of electric vehicles; converting fossil fuel generators into cleaner, renewable ones, such as solar, water, wind, geothermal and other new renewables.

“The use of bioenergy has been shown to have little effect on engine performance. It certainly gives a positive signal for reducing energy from fossils,” Arifin said.

In addition, he said that Indonesia has many alternative energy sources ranging from sunlight, wind, water, geothermal energy, as well as underwater currents which make up two-thirds of the world. Indonesian territory.

Technology in the field of renewable energies has developed considerably. Currently, to produce one megawatt of electricity from the Sun, only 0.5 hectare of surface area is needed over the previous hectare.

With so many natural resources, Indonesia is not only able to meet energy needs for national needs, but can also export.

“We launched the initiative with 100 megawatts of solar power, which we will export from Pulau Bulan to Singapore in 2024,” Arifin concluded. (Ant / OL-12)
