The ADB signed a memorandum of understanding with Indonesia’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) to collaborate on the establishment of the government’s Center of Excellence on Clean Energy.
The center will bring together knowledge and research on clean energy, facilitate clean energy investments, and help deploy clean energy technology solutions coming from both the public and private sectors.
"ADB is pleased to support the Government of Indonesia in reaching our shared vision of a clean and sustainable energy sector in Indonesia, and welcomes this significant collaboration with the government and our partners," said Steven Tabor, Country Director at ADB’s Indonesia Resident Mission.
ADB is providing technical assistance support to develop the initial concept of the center and is aiming to leverage inputs from international partners to help set it up.
The center will operate initially as an online virtual portal until physical premises are built in Bali.
