Asia Renewables Summit Underpins Region’s Biomass, Biogas Prospects & Indonesia’s Renewable Energy Roadmap

CMT's Asia Renewables Summit—in Jakarta on 27 February - 1 March, with dual tracks on 3rd Biomass & BioEnergy Asia and Indonesia Renewable Power—highlights Asia's biomass and biogas energy market progress and future potential as well as Indonesia's solar, wind, hydro, biomass and waste-to-energy power development plans.

The summit opens with a Combined Plenary Session featuring keynote addresses by PLN Persero on its Role in Enabling Renewable Power Growth, Mayer Brown on ‘Navigating the Challenges in Land Access & Regulatory Structure' and a Financing Panel deliberating on ‘Renewable Power Projects in Indonesia & SE Asia' led by IFC, PT Indonesia Infrastructure Finance, Societe Generale Asia, OPIC and ReEx Capital.


Post morning plenary, the summit breaks into two individual tracks with 3rd Biomass & BioEnergy Asia spotlighting on Indonesia's biomass-to-energy projects by Ata Marie Group and Solcofin while a senior rep from General Electric leads a discussion on the Techno-Economics for Indonesia's municipal solid waste to energy projects.

The track also covers Asia's biogas market outlook via sessions on:
• Development of Biogas Projects - Reflections and Opportunities for Value Creation in Palm Oil Based Biogas - Felda Palm Industries
• Operating Experience of Biogas Plants in SE Asia & Value -Add with Biogas Refining - Asia Biogas
• Specificities of Biomass & Biogas Projects: What Makes a Project Bankable? - ReEx Capital Asia
• Techno-Commercial Comparison of Biomass & Biogas Power Plant Technologies - Owl Energy


Other sessions in this track are - ‘Optimizing Use of Bamboo Biomass for Energy & Fiber in Thailand & SE Asia' by Kasetsart University and ‘Creating Sustainable Access of Energy for Small Island Communities in Indonesia with Bamboo as Biomass Energy Feedstock' by PT. Charta Putra Indonesia.

The concurrent track on Indonesia Renewable Power features a key presentation on ‘IPPs & Investment Prospects/Options of Geothermal Energy Projects in Indonesia' by P.T. Star Energy that will be followed by sessions on:
• Risk Management of Geothermal Exploration in Indonesia - Societe Generale
• Project SPORE - An Off-Grid Renewable Energy Demonstrator - ENGIE Lab
• Drivers & Key Considerations for Foreign Investors on Indonesian Hydro IPPs - Pinsent Masons
• Operating Utility-Scale Solar Power Plant in Indonesia - Conergy
• When to Use EPC(M) instead of EPC as Contracting Model for Solar Projects - Owl Energy
• Utility-Scale Wind Power Plant in Indonesia - Case Studies & Perspective - Asia Green Capital and UPC Renewables Indonesia

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
