British Petroleum to develop geothermal energy in indonesia: president

Antara News, Sat, May 26 2012

Yogyakarta (ANTARA News) - British Petroleum has agreed to participate in the development of geothermal energy in Indonesia, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said here on Friday.

"BP in talks just now agreed to participate in the development of geothermal energy in Indonesia thus to increase our power capacity," he said at a press conference.

President Yudhoyono said the agreement was the result of his talks with BP CEO Bob Dudley at Gedung Agung.

He said so far geothermal energy in the country has not yet been exploited well despite the fact that the country has the world`s biggest reserves.

He said the energy source has not yet been developed well due to investment challenges.

He said although incentives had been given the sector has not developed well. He said the oil subsidy had also made the price of geothermal energy not competitive yet.

The President reiterated that geothermal energy is one of the future environmental friendly renewable energy sources.

President Yudhoyono on the occasion also expressed appreciation to BP that has agreed to transfer 230 cubic feet of gas per day from its Tangguh field in Papua to domestic industries. The gas from the field had so far been exported.

President Yudhoyono said the agreement would support the economic development especially domestic industrial development.

He said the government in the future must make efforts to re-negotiate its working contracts so that the gas produced by fields in the country could be sold to the domestic market.

"In view of our economic challenges the government had actually conducted re-negotiations to make the gas produced in Indonesia not to be totally sold abroad which is certainly not fair and correct," he said.

He said however the government would always respect the contracts that have been signed. "I honor the contracts but I also appeal to investors, business leaders in Indonesia to understand the situation in Indonesia. If the contracts are considered not right and not quite fair we, with a good will, wish to improve them and renew them," he said.

Korean agency offers $700,000 for green school project

The Jakarta Post, Elly Burhaini Faizal,  Jakarta, Fri, 05/18/2012

Marking its first ever joint cooperation with the Education and Culture Ministry and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) is launching a Green School Action Project to help accelerate the development of environmental education in schools in Indonesia.

KOICA Indonesia Office representative, Sungho Choi, said Friday that the Green School Action Project was a collaborative and supportive scheme for the Indonesian government delivered by the KOICA and UNESCO Jakarta office on behalf of the Korean government.

This program is aimed at helping to build the capacity of Indonesian teachers to raise awareness on sustainable development in schools.

“Combating climate change is now the global concern in which joint efforts are essential. No country or region is free from this global issue. It’s highly appropriate for us to invest in education for sustainable development as climate change is not only about changing the environment but it can also lead to poverty,” said Sungho Choi on the sidelines of a three-day regional workshop for “Green Action in East Asia: Centered on Teacher Capacity Building for Climate Change Education”, which began on Friday.

For the project, he said, the KOICA had contributed US$700,000 for building capacity among teachers from 20 pilot schools in Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan, through education on climate change and sustainable development.

About 160 participants from seven countries, comprising Brunei Darussalam, China, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam, are attending the workshop. Teachers from the 20 pilot schools for the Green School Action Project in Banjarmasin are also taking part in the event.

“Supporting environmental management and sustainable development is one of the core sectors in bilateral cooperation conducted by the KOICA. I sincerely hope that we can continue to closely work on sustainable cooperation and environmental education to address the impacts of climate change,” said Sungho Choi.

Under the Adiwiyata program, which was launched in 2006, the Environment Ministry, in cooperation with the Education and Culture Ministry, has created green school communities that are able to manage and protect the environment partly to support sustainable development programs that the government is currently working on.

“We know that the Indonesian government already has a good program on green schools called Adiwiyata. We hope that the Green School Action Project can add increased values to that work,” said UNESCO Jakarta’s head of education division, Anwar al-Said.

Diponegoro University to build Geothermal Study Center

Antara News, Mon, May 14 2012

 "One day, the use of fossil energy will end."

Semarang, Central Java (ANTARA News) - Diponegoro University of Semarang, central Java, is building a Geothermal Research Center to be run by the Faculty of Science and Mathematics to examine potential geothermal resources in Indonesia.

"The Geophysics and Geothermal Research Centre building begins today and is targeted to be completed in November 2012," said Dean of the university`s Faculty of Science and Mathematics M. Nur here on Monday.

Nur added that fossil energy cannot remain plentiful forever and will someday be depleted due to excessive consumption. So, renewable energy such as geothermal would be a needed breakthrough.

"We see the geothermal energy potential in Central Java is located in the Mount Dieng area, Wonosobo and Ungaran, and Semarang regency. The Geothermal Research Center is expected to assist in the use of alternative energy," he said.

Nur noted that the Geophysics and Geothermal Research Centre building will be built in an area of 2.105 square meters and supported by the state`s Oil and Gas Company, PT Pertamina.

"One day, the use of fossil energy will end. Oil-fueled cars will be finished. Therefore, we need a long-term breakthrough for new renewable energy use," he said.

According to the university`s Rector, Sudharto, Indonesia's use of fossil energy is still as high as 95 percent, using petroleum, natural gas, and coal, and the remaining five percent is made up of new renewable energy alternatives.

Though national renewable energy consumption is only five percent, it is targeted to be increased to 17 percent by 2025.

Pertamina General Manager Retail Fuel Marketing Region IV Rifky Hardijanto Effendi added that, with the funding for construction of this facility, this is the third time Pertamina has contributed to construction at the university.

"We distributed Rp7.2 billion to build the Geophysics and Geothermal facility, and earlier we also helped construct the building at the university's Faculty of Economics and Faculty of Engineering," he said.
