UBM Focuses On Indonesia: Launches New Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Show

UBM has launched a major Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency trade show in Indonesia; with an emphasis on optimizing the potential of renewable energy. It also has a strong focus on supporting the sector and contributing to national energy security. Tri Mumpuni – CEO of Institute of Public Business and Economic (IBEKA), attending the press launch of Renewable Energy Indonesia said: “The economic growth will boost domestic energy needs and this will, in turn, open up opportunities for public and private investments. The potential increase in renewable energy and energy efficiency in Indonesia is remarkable.”

Tri Mumpuni added, “More than 60 million Indonesian children do not enjoy full access to electricity. Based on a survey conducted by IBEKA, around 33,000 villages in Indonesia are not yet connected to any grids. All parties should cooperate and support each other to improve the nation’s energy production through renewable energy and especially in remote areas. In the process, a trade event such Renewable Energy Indonesia can definitively play a key role.”

Christopher Eve, President Director, PT UBM Pameran Niaga Indonesia said: “We are proud to launch Renewable Energy Indonesia, which will be held at the Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran, on 29 to 31 March 2017. This exhibition aims to be a platform that brings together professionals, investors, and stakeholders with a sharp and exclusive focus on renewable energy and energy efficiency in order to exchange knowledge, best practices, resources and information. Conference, seminars, workshops, debates and exhibitors’ presentations will add into the mix, and will complement the 3 days together with a business matchmaking platform”.

Corporate Sourcing of Renewables Growing, Taking Place in 75 Countries

Companies in 75 countries actively sourced 465 terawatt hours (TWh) of renewable energy in 2017, an amount close to the overall electricity demand of France, according to the report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). With the continued decline in the costs of renewables, the report suggests, corporate demand will continue to increase as companies seek to reduce electricity bills, hedge against future price spikes and address sustainability concerns.

Arsenal Unveil Battery Storage System: First Of Its Kind At A UK Football Club

Arsenal Football Club has unveiled a battery storage system (BSS) to store enough energy to run the 60,000 seater Emirates Stadium from kick-off to full time. It follows a unique collaboration with Pivot Power to install a 2MW/2.5MWh lithium ion BSS, with funds managed by Downing LLP. The project, the first of its kind in the UK, will also save club money as it works to support low-carbon plans. The BSS allows Arsenal to avoid peak power prices, buying electricity when it is cheap and storing it for use when prices are high. Typically, energy can cost three times more at peak times than overnight. The installation maintains Arsenal as the leader in sustainability in sport following its commitment to clean energy with Octopus Energy in 2016.

EU Approves Ambitious Energy Efficiency Goals, Encourages Clean Energy Feed-In

Europeans will now be entitled to consume, store and sell the renewable energy they produce in line with ambitious targets set by the EU. The targets are to be reviewed by 2023, and can only be raised, not lowered. By making energy more efficient, Europeans will see their energy bills reduced. In addition, Europe will reduce its reliance on external suppliers of oil and gas, improve local air quality and protect the climate. For the first time, member states will also be obliged to establish specific energy efficiency measures to the benefit of those affected by energy poverty. Member states must also ensure that citizens are entitled to generate renewable energy for their own consumption, to store it and to sell excess production.
