Danida partners receive prestigious award for their work in the Danish supported Harapan Rainforest. Sukianto Lusli, Agus Budi Utomo, and Yusup Cahyadin from Burung Indonesia received the award in recognition of their fight to establish and improve the Ecosystem Restoration Concession regulation in Indonesia and for implementing Harapan Rainforest as the first project under the regulation.
Meso-scale map to support the identification of wind energy projects is launched by Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) and ESP3.
While the wind speeds in Indonesia are generally low, a number of sites with good potential for wind energy projects do exist.
ESP3 pilot projects in Central Java just took a big leap forward with the opening meeting of the Investment Grade Audit at textile factory PT APAC INTI Corpora in Bawen. The audit, to be undertaken by PT Synergy Efficiency Solutions, will give AIC a very detailed audit of its energy use that it will be able to use to develop a relationship with an energy services company (ESCO).
ESP3 partners from provincial and Regency-level in Central Java gathered in Wonogiri recently to review and discuss the draft report on a preliminary review of the artisanal small-scale gold-mining sector in Wonogiri Regency. The report, prepared by NGO Yayasan Tambuhak Sinta, sets the scene for agreeing what support ESP3 might give to help eradicate the use of highly-poisonous mercury in ASGM in Wonogiri. The alternatives to using mercury largely depend on the nature of rocks that the gold ore is found in.
On 21 October 2014 Maritje Hutapea, Director of Energy Conservation at Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), and Mogens Jensen, the Danish Minster for Trade and Development, launched ESP3 support for wind activities under the Sumba Iconic Island initiative.
The launch took place at the Global Green Growth Forum (3GF) in Copenhagen and also included the Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas, who will be part of the wind initiative at Sumba island.
