Over the past few months, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented global economic and social crisis. The pandemic has significantly affected all aspects of life and business, including the target of renewable energy development particularly in the geothermal sector.
It has caused reducing in the economic growth and also impacted to the geothermal investment.
The operations of the power plant are currently experiencing an unusual procedure which must follow the protocol as required by the government. This has resulted in a slower of the project development progress due to strict implementation of the protocol in order to prevent the Covid-19 spreading uncontrollably at the site. While for the geothermal new investment side, to add more installed capacity in attempt to catch up the target as set out under National Energy Policy, developers are hoping the government to improve current applicable regulation in term of tariff to meet the project economics and certainty of investment support.
In order to keep supporting the renewable energy development particularly in the geothermal sector and also to update the latest technology and regulations in the geothermal sector, the Indonesian Geothermal Association (INAGA), as the premier association for Geothermal sector in Indonesia, is proud to bring you a special programs of an virtual event that is called “Digital Indonesia International Geothermal Convention (DIIGC) 2020” which will be held 8 – 10 September 2020 in conjunction with the 20th INAGA Annual Scientific Meeting. The theme in this special event is “The Future is Now: Committing Geothermal Energy for Indonesia’s Sustainable Development”.
It represents a great opportunity to build a great relationship with worldwide potential business partners and developers, as well as showcasing the latest Indonesia’s geothermal development and all support services in the geothermal sector.
This special program is still very important for INAGA and all the geothermal stakeholder to gather in the forum to discuss the challenges, opportunities, ideas and experience related to the geothermal development during the Covid-19 pandemic also more important will be afteror post pandemic and how geothermal industry will grow in supporting the green development. We believe, we are all in the same objectives and the event will be for the interest of all geothermal stakeholder.
