Threats of energy scarcity in the future and the environmentally bad impacts of fossil fuels make ITS continue to innovate in developing new and renewable energy. ITS innovation in environmentally friendly energy is poured through research led by the Center for Energy Studies under the Institute for Research and Community Service (LPPM).
The ITS Energy Study Center commits to support government programs in maintaining energy security and energy sustainability in Indonesia. This objective is in accordance with the National Energy Policy as set out in the Energy Policy White Paper of 2005-2025 and in the General Plan for National Energy (RUEN) contained in PP. No. 22 of 2017 concerning Energy Policy for 2016-2050.
In energy management, the ITS Energy Study Center prioritizes the principles of justice, sustainability, and environmental insight. This is done so that energy independence and national energy security can be realized. The main pillar of the ITS Energy Study Center is conducting research and community service related to: Energy Intensification, Energy Diversification and Energy Conservation.
The ITS Energy Study Center contributes to accelerating the development of renewable energy in Indonesia, including establishing an Energy Conservation Center, increasing fuel and electricity prices or reducing subsidies, and strengthening institutional and human resource capacity related to energy development. ITS innovation in environmentally friendly energy comes from water, wind, geothermal, ocean currents and waves, solar cells, and biomass.
