ICECRD ACTIVITIES – Currently, the role of new renewable energy and energy conservation is very important to increase national energy security. In line with the continued rate of economic growth and population, the projected energy demand in Indonesia will increase by 4.7% per year. In this case, the role of new and renewable energy is very important, especially in increasing access to modern energy for all Indonesian people.

Government through Government Regulation no. 79 of 2014 concerning the National Energy Policy encourages the development of new and renewable energy by setting a target of using renewable energy in 2025 at 23%, and the utilization of bioenergy by 5%. Through this regulation, it is hoped that the Government can cooperate with related parties, especially investors, in order to make the best use of this investment opportunity.

In response to this the Indonesian Center For Estate Crops Research and Development (ICECRD) received a visit from PT. Cipta Start Energy (PT. CME) which carries out the mission: (1) Carrying out research, development, and consulting in the fields of renewable energy, agriculture and plantations, (2) Producing and marketing B100 biodiesel and other vegetable materials, (3) Developing fields agricultural business, plantation, and processing of agricultural and plantation products, and (4) Developing cooperation with the principles of trust, normative, professional, feasible, and mutually beneficial.

The visit received a direct response by the Head of the ICECRD, Ir. Syafaruddin, Ph.D and structural officials, Researcher group and IIBCRI researchers who have been focusing on bioenergy research and development. The visit was intended for the purpose of planning collaborative research, development and use of research results and innovations from the ICECRD by PT. CME.
