Japan-Indonesia Government-Private Workshop on Clean Energy Technology to be Held

March 6, 2019

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has been promoting private sector efforts to disseminate low-carbon technologies overseas and support developing countries in transitions to clean energy sources.

As part of this effort, on March 13, 2019, a Japan-Indonesia Government-Private Workshop on Clean Energy Technology will be held under the framework of the Japan-Indonesia Energy Forum under the chairmanship of senior working-level officials in Japan and Indonesia.

For disseminating the achievements of innovations and facilitating the creation of new markets, development of business environments through efforts for technical development and dissemination of such technologies is indispensable, in addition to advancement of domestic policy- and system-making in respective countries. Motivated by this workshop, Japan will encourage Indonesia to make use of the knowledge and experiences that Japan has accumulated in the field of clean energy in formulating policy and related systems in Indonesia. Moreover, Japan will encourage Indonesia to intensify activities involving creation of the clean energy market and related business activities by further deepening cooperation between the two countries on development of projects which utilize innovative technologies.

1. Background and purpose

Japan and Indonesia have been cooperating in advancing efforts including the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM)* for worldwide low-carbonization as a countermeasure against climate change.

Under the framework of the Japan-Indonesia Energy Forum, on March 13, 2019, METI, in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia, will hold a Japan-Indonesia Government-Private Workshop on Clean Energy Technology as part of the efforts for enhancing Japan-Indonesia cooperation in the fields of energy and climate change.

At the beginning of the workshop, a representative of the International Energy Agency (IEA) will deliver a keynote speech concerning the current situations and perspectives of global energy transition, including ASEAN economies, IEA-ASEAN cooperation and other issues. The program following this will bring together representatives of governmental organizations, international organizations and private companies, and participants will share information on successful case examples and knowhow involving past Japan-Indonesia projects for low-carbonization by introducing energy conservation technologies and renewable energy technologies.

METI will aim to expand these bilateral efforts in the fields of energy and climate change, the issues to be discussed at the workshop, to other countries in the ASEAN region as part of its ASEAN-wide efforts.

This workshop is the third effort following the series of workshop held in Thailand in November 2018 and in Viet Nam in February 2019.

Note:
* The JCM offers a framework in which Japan's efforts to provide outstanding low-carbon technologies and products are appropriately evaluated as Japan’s contributions to CO2 reduction.
