With the limitations of fossil energy, new and renewable energy (EBT) has become important alternative energy. The national energy policy targets NRE for around 23% of Indonesia’s total primary energy by 2025. EBT consists of various types such as solar, water, wind, geothermal, biomass, hydrogen, and nuclear power. Biomass can consist of biogas, bioethanol, biodiesel, bio charcoal, and organic waste. The priority of national energy development is maximizing the use of renewable energy, minimizing the use of petroleum, optimizing the use of natural gas and new energy, using coal as a mainstay of national energy supply, and utilizing nuclear as a last resort.
Currently, JTE is developing various power generation businesses that come from water, solar, wind or wind, and biomass such as biodiesel. There are still many potential new and renewable energy sources to be developed.
