Seminar on Development and Utilization of Bioenergy in Yogyakarta

On August 12, 2015, the Indonesia Cookstove Alliance (ATI) attended a seminar held by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources highlighting the development and utilization potential of bioenergy in the Special Region of Yogyakarta. The purpose was to urge local governments to harness this potential towards achieving the 2025 target of increase in BBN (Bahan Bakar Nabati or Biofuels) to 23% of the national energy mix.

This awareness is important given that Yogyakarta is an energy importer due to the absence of conventional energy deposits. Meanwhile Yogyakarta’s energy consumption continues to increase in all sectors, namely transport, domestic, commercial, industrial and public sectors. However based on field data, Yogyakarta in fact has the resources to produce local renewable energy but has yet to harness this potential.

One of the discussion points in this seminar was potential for biomass use in the household and industrial sectors. While local biomass development and utilization is important, we must be cognizant that clean technologies be developed in conjunction. This is inefficient while posing health risks to the user, when used in conjunction with traditional stoves. The hope is that with clean cookstove technology utilization, there will be a reduction in the amount of fuel used while minimizing the health risks to the user.

In addition, agricultural byproducts can also be utilized as biomass fuel. For example sawdust from a furniture company that might otherwise be treated as waste can be processed into wood pellets for power generation.

Through these seminars it is expected that the local governments can better understand the fuel generation potential that exists within each region. Further, to apply this new awareness in facilitating growth towards achieving the energy mix target by the year 2025.
