The Danish government has granted 285 million DKK to the Indonesian government for the development of renewable energy.
National Development Planning Minister Armida Alisjahbana said the grant was given for cooperation on renewable energy projects between 2013 and 2018.
Denmark is one of the countries that has implemented renewable energy since 1980. The country’s energy usage is efficient by utilizing wind, biomass and waste, said Armida, after meeting the Danish Trade and Investment Minister at the National Development Planning Board office in Jakarta on Monday, March 4.
Danish Minister Pia Olsean Dyhr said there are many Danish companies that are interested in investing in Indonesia, mostly in the energy sector.
“In Denmark, we have natural resources in the North Sea, which include oil and gas; just like in Indonesia,” said the minister.
