Therefore, we are committed to supporting and improving the skills of human resources in the renewable energy sector.
Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources is organizing a joint training on the development and use of renewable energy with two partner countries, Nepal and Madagascar, from November 2-4, 2021.
The head of the Human Resource Development Center for Electricity, New Energy, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation at the ministry, Laode Sulaiman, provided details of the joint training here on Wednesday.
“The development and use of renewable energies requires the implementation of appropriate regulations and action plans, supported by increasing the capacity of human resources,” he said.
The virtual training was entitled “Training on rural electrification by micro-hydroelectricity, solar photovoltaic and energy recovery from waste”, he informed.
It is attended by 10 participants from Indonesia, 12 participants from Madagascar and 11 participants from Nepal who have experience in the energy sector, he said.
During the training, they will learn about the planning and development of renewable energy in solar power plants, small-scale hydropower plants and energy waste management in Indonesia, he added.
They will also discuss the application of renewable energy and its challenges in their respective countries, he said.

In addition, the main center said that the increase in global energy consumption has encouraged many developing countries, including Indonesia, Madagascar and Nepal, to use renewable energy.
In addition, the Indonesian government has believed that the development and use of renewable energy requires collaboration among stakeholders, as well as consistent implementation of various policies from both upstream and downstream sectors, he said.
“Therefore, we are committed to supporting and improving the skills of human resources in the renewable energy sector,” Sulaiman added.
The training activity is part of the South-South Triangular Cooperation on Renewable Energy (SSTC RE) – a partnership forum among developing countries on renewable energy for 2021 to 2023, he said.
The training is the second activity of the forum and the flagship of the cooperation program with developing countries in Indonesia, he added.
“The partnership emphasizes that no one is left behind as there were a number of participants from several private sectors as well as an increase in the number of female participants by 39%,” said Jasper Haerig, a participant from Madagascar.
