BPPT - Toshiba Assessed Fuel Cell Technology for Power Plants

MoU BPPT TESSJakarta (August 30) – Head of the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT), Unggul Priyanto accompanied by the Deputy for TIEM, Eniya Listiani Dewi signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (TESS), Japan.

This MoU is the first step of joint research related to the Study and Demonstration of the Development Project of Hydrogen Autonomous Energy Systems (H2One™) for Off Grid and Microgrid Network Connections.

“Through the signing of this MoU with Toshiba Japan, we are working on Joint Research H2One, a combination of battery and fuel cell technology for new and renewable energy power plants" said Unggul. Unggul added that Indonesia has many renewable energy potentials including abundant solar energy sources with an average solar radiation intensity of around 4.8 kWh / m2 per day in all parts of Indonesia.

H2One™ system is a technology product made by TESS, a Japanese company as a pioneer in fuel cell design in hydrogen manufacturing technology and New and Renewable Energy plants.

The spirit of implementing New and Renewable Energy supports efforts to achieve the target of the New and Renewable Energy mix in Indonesia up to 23% by 2025. BPPT through the National Laboratory for Energy Conversion Technology (B2TKE) contributes to supporting the achievement of these targets through technical assistance and technology transfer to related parties. The appraisal function of the technology possessed by BPPT is needed to identify the feasibility of applying new technologies that enter Indonesia.

Therefore, through this joint research activity, BPPT through B2TKE will conduct a feasibility study and demonstrate the application of H2One™ technology in Indonesia.
