BRIN steps up the development of low-carbon technologies


Jakarta (ANTARA) – The National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) continues to accelerate the development of low-carbon technologies to encourage the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, especially carbon dioxide. of carbon (CO2).

The effort is being made by strengthening research and innovation in various fields through the development of low-carbon technologies, noted the Director of BRIN’s Energy Conversion and Conservation Research Center, Dr. Cuk Supriyadi.

“There are seven fields of application in the implementation of research and technology,” he said during the webinar on research and innovation in energy and manufacturing to support independence of the nation on Thursday.

“The first area concerns research in the planning, analysis and optimization of energy systems through energy modelling, starting from the supply and use of energy,” he noted.

The second involves research in the field of energy conversion system through the application of thermodynamic technology, from thermal power plants, air conditioning systems, heat exchanger systems and cooling systems.

The third includes research on energy saving and low emission technologies for the conversion of fossil energy.

The fourth is research on the technology of using new and renewable energies which includes alternative energies, such as solar, hydroelectricity, geothermal energy, hydrogen and biomass.

The fifth concerns the search for an efficient, reliable and low-emission fossil and alternative energy drive system.

The sixth is research on electrical technologies that support new and renewable energy, including smart grid system and energy monitoring system.

The seventh concerns research on energy conservation technologies which encompasses energy management, energy saving technologies, as well as energy auditing in power plants, households, transport, buildings and industry.

“As an example, one research that had been conducted is that in the energy optimization system,” he said.

“There are two sub-themes, the first being the study of the potential of new and renewable energies, while the second is the optimization of the national energy system,” he noted.

Based on this search for an energy optimization system, the scenario involving energy transition, the study of energy demand and supply, as well as the study of the environment linked to the techno-economy and energy technologies was created.

“The research outcome should encourage the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to support the nation’s independence,” Supriyadi remarked.
