The BRIN provides support through available laboratory infrastructure programs, facilitation and funding scheme, and domestic and international cooperation
Jakarta (ANTARA) – The National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) calls for concrete programs from the science sector for sustainable development, such as the efforts to speed up sustainable energy transition in the Group of Twenty (G20) event.
“The BRIN provides support through available laboratory infrastructure programs, facilitation and funding scheme, and domestic and international cooperation,” BRIN’s Research and Innovation Utilization Acting Deputy, Mego Pinandito, noted through a written statement on Saturday.
Sustainable energy transition became one of the three priority sectors within Indonesia’s G20 Presidency, he noted. Indonesia encourages the G20 to play a part in ensuring the availability of affordable clean technology.
Related to the energy sector, Indonesia still requires a variety of technologies to develop existing natural resources.
The study of energy transition from the social, economical, cultural, and financial perspectives is also necessary as Indonesia has local wisdom within the context of energy and its utilization.
Sustainable energy transition is also discussed within the Science 20 (S20) Program. The S20 is an engagement group activity, as part of the series of the G20 events, that discusses main science-related issues.
Meanwhile, the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI) also highlights sustainable energy transition within the S20.
Earlier, the Indonesian government had invited nations within the G20 to reach a global agreement by expediting the energy transition program.
Indonesia has unveiled the G20 Energy Transition to connect and push for advancing and developing nations to accelerate the transition from fossil fuel to clean energy as well as to bolster the sustainable global energy system.
The G20 Energy Transition was unveiled as a part of Indonesia’s G20 Presidency from December 1, 2021, until the G20 Summit in November 2022.
The energy transition pillar will bring up three priority issues: access, technology, and funding.
