Jakarta, 9 August 2016 – Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) through Directorate General for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (DG NREEC) implements several pilot project on green cooling technology in five industrial sector: hotel, food and beverage, commercial buildings, supermarket, and pharmaceutical. In cooperation with PT Phapros Tbk, MEMR has commitment to install hydrocarbon refrigerant in building facility owned by PT Phapros Tbk. 

Under bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and Germany, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) provides technical support in the green chiller installation at PT Phapros Tbk. The signing of memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Mrs. Farida Zed (Director of Energy Conservation, DG NREEC) and Mrs. Barokah Sri Utami (President Director PT Phapros Tbk). 

Mrs Farida Zed said that hydrocarbon refrigerant chiller will reduce synthesis refrigerant import. Besides, hydrocarbon refrigerant is environment-friendly so that the users could reduce energy consumption of the chiller. “Involving private sector, especially the industry, to use hydrocarbon refrigerant chiller is expected to decrease energy consumption in the sector”, Mrs. Zed explains. 

Benefits that the participating private sector the pilot project are energy saving up to twenty percent from hydrocarbon chiller system, and getting technical support and training for the installation, operation and maintenance of hydrocarbon chiller.

Germany - Green Chiller NAMA, a project under cooperation of Indonesia and the German Government for Energy Efficiency in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (RAC) sector - organised an Indonesian Delegation Visit to Germany on 11-16 October 2016. Highlighting theme “Climate and Energy Efficiency Policies and Measures”, the visit aimed to facilitate knowledge-sharing and discussion on climate and energy efficiency policies and measures between government officials and private sector representatives.

Green Chillers NAMA project, a joint project between the Indonesian and German Government, organised a study trip for the representatives of Bandung State Polytechnic (Polban), Bali State Polytechnic (PNB), and National Professional Certification Authority (BNSP), on 16-23 July 2016, to Germany. The aim is to improve current and future practices in Indonesia’s RAC sector, specifically in hydrocarbon (HC) handling activities by providing a first-hand, practical experience on the latest HC industry development in Germany for Indonesia’s leading actors in RAC/HC training and certification.

Green Chillers NAMA project is a technical cooperation project between the Directorate of Energy Conservation, Directorate General for New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (DG-NREEC), Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) and GIZ on behalf of Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). The main objective of the project is to assist  Indonesia achieves its greenhouse gas emissions target within the framework of the development of nationally appropriate mitigation actions for refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) systems in industrial and commercial sectors.

As part of the support to strengthen the technical capacity of the Directorate General New, Renewable Energy, and Energy Conservation (DG NREEC) on Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) project finance, LCORE and Green Chillers project under Energy Programme Indonesian/ASEAN – jointly implemented by DG NREEC and GIZ on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), participated in 5-day summer academy on Climate and Sustainable Energy Finance hosted by Frankfurt School, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Germany.  The course was held on 25-29 July 2016 and participated by more than 30 participants from various countries.

The training provided participants broader knowledge and information on the impact of recent international climate negotiations, policies and sources of financing to scale up and unlock climate finance, the linkages between public and private sector finance and financial modelling. The participants also learned about RE and EE projects from other countries through interactive sessions on project design.
