Exploring the potential of bioenergy in Indonesia for multiple benefits uri icon

abstract

  • Indonesia has committed to provide energy to all its population throughthe National Energy Policy (Kebijakan Energi Nasional). The policy highlights the importance of diversification,environmental sustainability, and enhanced deployment of domestic energy resources. Diversified energy supplyshould include oil, coal, gas, and new-and-renewable energy (NRE). The contribution of NRE to the nationâ??s energysupply is mandated to reach 23% by 2025. Indonesia has also made commitments internationally to align energyprovision with sustainability, as stated by the President of Indonesia at the Twenty-first Conference of Parties to theUnited Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 2015, along with a commitment to further reduce netgreenhouse-gas emissions.Bioenergy is an important renewable energy alternative. It is defined as energy produced from plant biomass andplant-derived residues and waste (Souza et al 2015). Modern bioenergy carriers include liquid biofuelsâ??suchas bioethanol and biodieselâ??as well as solid biofuels, biogas and bioelectricity (http://www.ebtke.esdm.go.id/).Bioenergy sources include forests, crops, livestock and urban and industrial waste. The use of biomass resourcesrequires integration with multiple activities in rural and urban areas
