  • Nowadays, wind energy is becoming an attractive source of clean energy. 
  • Solar and wind energy must develop rapidly in ASEAN countries, especially considering that currently solar and wind power plants are the most economical and fastest technology to replace coal.
  • Indonesia has the ability and opportunity to make a major contribution to reducing emissions in ASEAN and leading ASEAN in the transition to clean energy by maximizing the potential of solar and wind energy.

Nowadays, wind energy is becoming an attractive source of clean energy. It’s no secret that the overall success of a wind farm is primarily determined by the amount of power it produces, which translates into revenue generation for its owner. Yet the prevailing industry measure of a wind turbine’s performance remains its availability to produce electricity if the wind is blowing. In fact, virtually all original equipment manufacturers base their wind turbine warranties in part or in whole on availability metrics.

Indonesia plans to increase solar power capacity by 4.68 GW and wind power by 0.6 GW in 2030, as stated in PLN’s 2021-2030 Electricity Supply Business Plan (RUPTL), which is touted as the “greenest” RUPTL. The share of solar and wind power generation in 2030 will be the lowest among the ASEAN 5. On the other hand, Indonesia’s electricity demand growth rate is projected to be among the highest, namely 4.9% per year. At this rate, only 5% of the increased demand will be met by solar and wind.

Solar and wind energy must develop rapidly in ASEAN countries, especially considering that currently solar and wind power plants are the most economical and fastest technology to replace coal. Indonesia has the ability and opportunity to make a major contribution to reducing emissions in ASEAN and leading ASEAN in the transition to clean energy by maximizing the potential of solar and wind energy.

With wind energy with small-scale wind power, wind hybrid and ancillary technologies such as battery/Energy Storage Systems, micro and intelligent grids will contribute maximally to address this gap. In order for us to be able to contribute, of course we need rules that are “workable” in the provision of small-scale electricity in remote areas and are available 24 hours continuously.

Not only that, Chairman of the Indonesian Wind Energy Association (AEAI) Agung Hermawan also said, the opinion here must be straightened out that EBT generators are expensive. In fact, if we, the EBT Generator Association, are given a much larger quota than today, there is a possibility that we can produce electricity that is much cheaper than now, but because the quota given is small and limited, it will have an impact on production prices that appear to be higher than what is expected. usually happens.

Regarding large-scale Wind Power Plants (PLTB), I represent AEAI hope that the government will support and encourage the development of PLTB by providing a larger portion considering that Indonesia’s wind energy potential is quite large and spread over several regions, and this needs to be done. understood in the long run. In the long run, the cost of generating from EBT-based energy including wind will be much lower, especially if we also take into account the environmental impacts that occur when compared to fossil-based electricity.
