Toshiba to build CO2-free energy system for Indonesia

We will accelerate adoption of the commercial system in Indonesia, taking into account the regulations and rules of Indonesia’s power network and power system interconnection.

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with state-owned electricity company, Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) to build hydrogen-based energy systems with zero CO2 emission to meet electrical power in Indonesia’s remote areas.

The MoU is particularly aimed at accelerating the adoption of hydrogen-based autonomous energy supply system, H2One, in Indonesia, Toshiba said in its official statement released on Sunday morning.

Toshiba and PLN signed the MoU during the 6th Indonesia-Japan Energy Forum held by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).

Based on this MoU, Toshiba ESS and PLN will evaluate viable technologies and policies necessary for an advanced adoption of the commercial H2One� in the archipelago of Indonesia by 2023.

H2One� is an integrated system that uses a renewable energy source to electrolyze hydrogen from water, and stores and uses the hydrogen in fuel cells to provide a stable delivery of CO2-free, environmentally-friendly electricity and hot water. One of the applications of H2One� is an off-grid solution, which can help realize a sustainable society.

According to Indonesia’s Electricity Power Supply Business Plan (RUPTL), the country aims to increase the ratio of its capacity of renewal energy facility from 12.52 percent in 2017 to 23 percent by 2025.

Moreover, many Indonesian people live on remote islands, so that they need a stable and economical electric power source on each of the remote islands.

The MoU is also a follow up to the MoU signed by Toshiba and the Indonesian Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) on the survey for the accelerated adoption of H2One� in August 2018. Both sides have conducted a joint survey.

On the other hand, Toshiba ESS validated the adaptability of H2One� in Indonesia in the public offering business by METI.

The development and survey of H2One� adopted project, the autonomous hydrogen-based energy supply system, was entrusted by Toshiba ESS in September 2018.

Toshiba ESS has subsequently identified areas where H2One� could be adopted by February 2019 and are now working for the implementation of the demonstration system.

“We will accelerate adoption of the commercial system in Indonesia, taking into account the regulations and rules of Indonesia’s power network and power system interconnection,” Yoshihisa Sanagi, General Manager of the Hydrogen Energy Business Division at Toshiba ESS said.

Toshiba ESS will expand hydrogen-based energy technology and products, including the H2One�, into the global market, and we will contribute to the realization of a hydrogen-based energy society.
