Development of a Technology Catalogue for the Indonesian Power Sector

Development of a Technology Catalogue for the Indonesian Power Sector

Indonesia and Denmark are cooperating through an Environmental Support Programme, with the current third programme phase (ESP3) running from 2013 to 2017. The overall ESP3 development objective is to support the Government of Indonesia (GoI) in reconciling economic growth with sustainable development through improved environmental management and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The Danish government has likewise initiated a government to government cooperation with Indonesia on energy and energy efficiency to strengthen the partnership between the two countries. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the MEMR and the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate on October 22, 2015. The objective of the Strategic Sector Cooperation (SSC) is to assist Indonesian government agencies and other relevant stakeholders in developing relevant policies, strategies and solutions to increase the electrification rate and to achieve the government’s long-term RE and EE objectives.

The Danish partner of the SSC program is the Danish Energy Agency and the main partners in Indonesia are the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) and the National Energy Council (NEC), who are both represented in the steering committee. Also, the Danish Energy Agency cooperates with the state-owned electricity company (PLN). The Consultancy must assist the Danish Energy Agency in the cooperation with the above mentioned institutions with the purpose of enhancing the long term energy planning through improvement of the energy models and consolidation of energy data.

The National Energy Council (NEC) is tasked with the preparation of an Annual Energy Outlook, which shall provide direction for government and stakeholders in the Indonesian Energy System. The NEC has both models and modelling capability and already uses the LEAP model – a well-established planning tool, which can provide a comprehensive overarching view of the current and future energy system, and which can support scenario analyses hereof. In a future with increasing penetration of variable renewables, issues regarding power system balancing and renewable power integration must be considered as a part of the energy planning. This is a
blind spot for many models such as LEAP. The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) through the SSC will assist NEC in establishing a modelling capacity and support such analyses with increasing renewable penetration. This calls for the introduction of fine grained models of the power system.

One of the improvements to the energy modelling in Indonesia is the introduction of Balmorel. Balmorel is a power sector model with a flexibility that allows it to be used both for long-term optimal capacity expansion modelling, as well as short-term detailed hourly unit commitment and economic dispatch. It can and has been used in both regulated and restructured liberalized power markets. A core strength is a solid representation of all key technologies in the power system, including generation, consumption, storage, and transmission, and the challenges and opportunities of introducing fluctuating renewables has frequently been addressed by the model.

ESP3 and SSC is currently supporting the Indonesian energy modelling system by providing technical assistance to NEC. After conducting the early phase of the energy modelling support, it was found that Indonesia still lacks consistent and updated data on different power generation technologies, i.e. investment & operation/maintenance cost, real cost of energy, cost projections in the future, applicability, environmental impacts, etc. Standardized and consistent
data is an essential tool in order to ensure the most cost efficient power sector planning. Power plants, PV systems or Wind turbines demand large investments and the expected lifetime exceeds 20 years, hence it is very important to plan correctly and use consistent data, not only looking at investments costs, but also including O&M costs, fuel costs, interest rates etc. in order to determine the levelised cost per kWh.

Based on the above rationale, NEC and EBTKE request ESP3 to develop a technology data catalogue for the energy power plants in Indonesia. The activity will assist the Indonesian modelling team in improving the current modelling system with better planning in power plant types deployment. The technology data should be discussed and agreed upon with other stakeholders and it is proposed to use the existing methodologies available from the Danish technology catalogue approach and adjust it to fit an Indonesian context.

The technology catalogue will be a generic document that should be updated biyearly by NEC, both with new data and new technologies. The technology catalogue will provide data and assumptions that should be applied to all power sector modelling and planning in Indonesia.

The assignment will need approximately 12 man-months, with a maximum budget of DKK 1,000,000 and the time schedule is January 2017 - June 2017.

Deadline for applications: 30 January 2017, at 13:00, Danish time

The standard application form should be used. Applications not using the standard form may be rejected. Applications received after the deadline shall be rejected.
