Renewable Energy for Electrification Programme (REEP) organised the “Presentation of Study on Renewable Energy (RE) Grid Integration” in Kaledupa and Belitung in Jakarta on 22 March. The study is part of REEP’s pilot project activity demonstrating RE integration in island grids for education and replication purposes. It covers a 10-year power system planning in both islands which uses two assumptions on how these loads are fulfilled either by mixture of renewables and fossil energies and/or by using 23% of RE.
Budi Mulyono, Senior Manager of PLN’s New Renewable Energy Division, was hopeful that PLN would benefit from the study, “I hope the study can be served as recommendation for PLN’s future electricity business plan (RUPTL) and the tools can be used to develop 10-year power system planning in other similar sized-grid locations.”
Attending the event were REEP’s partners namely Directorate General of New Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation, Directorate General of Electricity, and the State Electricity Company (PLN) headquarter and regions who were attentively interested to listen to the study conducted by Energynautics of Germany and STT PLN of Indonesia.
