Nusantara Super Grid Concept May Ramp Up Renewable Energy


The government seeks to boost the renewable energy mix, utilizing the Nusantara Super Grid concept – the idea of ​​inter-island electricity interconnection – becomes one of the ways. Secretary-General of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), Ego Syahrial, said inter-island interconnection is a potential solution to ramp up renewable energy development while maintaining the electrical system stability and security.

According to Ego, the Nusantara Super Grid concept may connect the electricity network between major islands in Indonesia. "This allows each region to import and export electricity supplies when there is a shortage or surplus of renewable energy-based electricity," he said in a virtual discussion on Wednesday (7/7).

The Indonesian Smart Network Initiative (PJCI) founder Eddie Widiono assessed that the Nusantara Super Grid concept is suited to Indonesia as an archipelagic country. In particular, in Eastern Indonesia, the load center is located in Western Indonesia. "Therefore, we encourage the Nusantara Super Grid idea, which has the objective to integrate renewable energy sources," he said.
