In her remarks, Director General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Eniya Listiani Dewi said that this activity is a form of joint efforts of the three countries in increasing energy access and empowering women in the field of renewable energy in Indonesia and Nepal through South-South and Triangular cooperation.

“This meeting opens the opportunity for the parties to share good practices, overcome obstacles to increase energy access, strengthen the cooperation of countries involved in SSTC DRE Nepal in the spirit of solidarity between south-south and triangular countries,” she explained.

Eniya further revealed that the programs and activities of the South-South Triangle Cooperation for Decentralized Renewable Energy are in line with topics discussed globally, including at the G20 in 2022 in Indonesia and the G20 in 2023 in India. According to him, Indonesia, Nepal and Germany are part of this, so it is necessary to strengthen cooperation between the three countries, especially in the field of decentralized renewable energy.

“We warmly welcome cooperation in the form of technical assistance, knowledge sharing, capacity building, and others. Renewable energy plays an important role in addressing these issues as well as reducing GHG emissions towards the energy transition. Renewable energy can be utilized to increase access to electricity for people in remote areas and provide a multiplier impact on improving the local economy,” he said.
