BANDUNG - The government hopes that all elements of the community will help build the bioenergy industry in Indonesia to support national energy security and sustainability efforts, this was revealed by the Director General of New Energy, Renewable and Energy Conservation (EBTKE), FX Sutijastoto, last Saturday (6/4) when became one of the speakers at the 2019 Chemurgy Innovation Summit Seminar organized by the Bioenergy and Kemurgi Student Association (HMTB) Faculty of Industrial Technology - Bandung Institute of Technology.



"This bioenergy is our backbone to replace our dependence on oil, which has now diminished. Even though it has decreased from 50%, our production is only half," Toto said, as he was familiarly called.

As an agricultural country, Indonesia's energy resources in the future are bioenergy and currently the Government together with related parties are developing the concept of industrial energy agriculture. "As a regulator, we facilitate how innovations from these universities enter the industry for conciliation, therefore the research must be pushed to the industry," explained Director General Toto. "According to research, the economy in Indonesia in 2030 can be number 5 in the world, so the opportunity to develop is very high, the consequence is that energy needs are increasing, so my focus is on energy security," he said.

At present the electrification ratio is 98.3% and is targeted to reach 99.9%. Meanwhile, Indonesia has also implemented the B20 Mandatory Program which indicates that Indonesia has bioethanol raw materials. This is where the importance of bioenergy because it can be used for electricity generation. The Director General of Toto hopes that students can innovate how to create an efficient generator so that it is affordable with local raw materials so that the procurement logistics costs are cheap.

"For our brothers and sisters who have not yet received electricity, we distribute LTSHE but only temporarily, only 3 or 4 years of use. Later it will be managed with energy sustainable. Now this is where bioenergy is needed through Biomass Power Plant (PLT Biomass). modern, which is electricity, will definitely trigger a new civilization and that is definitely an economic development, the children have a future, "said Toto.
