Bali’s Nusa Penida becomes NRE pilot project to support environmentally friendly tourism

Jakarta—PLN Indonesia Power (PLN IP) plans to add Solar Power Plants (PLTS) and Wind Power Plants (PLTB) on Nusa Penida Island, Bali, as a real commitment to the energy transition towards net-zero emissions (NZE).

Currently, Nusa Penida already has a hybrid solar power plant with a capacity of 3.5 MWac. However, in the medium-term plan, the island’s electricity system will be expanded by adding a 14.5 MW green power plant of solar and wind farms combined with Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) technology.

It is planned that the solar power plant will start operating in 2025, followed by the wind power plant in 2026.

Commission VII of the House of Representatives supported the development of Nusa Penida’s electricity system, directly conveying this support during a Specific Working Visit to Bali Province. “We as a great nation are committed to preserving the earth from global warming, which is increasingly felt as a result,” said the Head of Commission VII, Sugeng Suparwoto, in a written statement.

In support of clean energy development, Commission VII DPR RI also drafts New Renewable Energy (NRE) regulations. Sugeng stated that a law related to NRE is being drafted to provide legal certainty for NRE development in Indonesia. (Hartatik)
