PT HDF Energy Indonesia and Hydrogène de France SA (HDF Energy) group signed an MoU with The Central Public Service Survey and Testing Centre For Electricity, New, Renewable Energy And Energy Conservation (BBSP KEBTKE) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) of Indonesia on joined studies to support HDF Energy Renewstable® plants in Indonesia.
A Renewstable® power plant uses local sources of clean energy to enhance domestic electricity production, reducing exposure to imported fuels, associated price volatility and supply risks. Meanwhile, BBSP KEBTKE is a unit of MEMR that offers survey, testing and studies services related to new and renewable energy and energy conservation projects.
This MoU illustrates HDF Energy’s focus on Indonesia to expand its footprint in Asia, following works in Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia and the Philippines earlier this year. HDF is developing a pipeline of more than 20 projects in Indonesia, with support from development institutions for an investment of 1.5 billion USD.
Under this MoU, both parties will combine their technical know-how and market understanding to develop a portfolio of Renewstable® and hydrogen projects in Indonesia to provide clean, stable and continuous energy, day and night.
Mr Senda Hurmuzan Kanam, Head of BBSP KEBTKE, MEMR Indonesia, said, “The efforts to develop new and renewable energy potential technologies are carried out in order to achieve the emission reduction target and Net Zero Emission (carbon neutrality) which is targeted to be achieved in 2060 or earlier.
Sahid Junaidi, at MEMR Indonesia, said, “We hope to attract many more industry partners and researchers to come here, to partner with Indonesian companies and government and work with our people to develop new ideas that can become scalable and applicable.”
Mathieu GEZE, President Director, PT HDF Energy Indonesia, said, “Our projects pipeline will put Indonesia at the forefront of green hydrogren projects in Asia”.
