The second day of the 2022 Sweden-Indonesia Sustainability Partnership (SISP) week continued the discussion that was focused on building a strong foundation within sustainable energy. In the approach to developing sustainability, Indonesia and Sweden shared a mutual interest in the establishment of renewable energy as a step to reach Net Zero Emissions by 2050. The discussion of the second-day seminar of SISP 2022 on energies also focused on smart grid, blue energy, green energy, energy efficiency, and heat efficiency. In the hope to maintain cooperation, a memorandum of understanding was signed between Indonesia's electricity company PLN and Business Sweden. On the ambition toward renewable energies and zero-emission, Indonesia outlined a plan to construct Super Grid that connects the power grid within the archipelago, specifically in Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Sulawesi, and Papua. President Director of a real estate developer Flores Prosperindo, Alfonso Pardede, along with Special Advisor of West Nusa Tenggara Energy department, Fauzi Imron, have shown interest in the green energy transition in East and West Nusa Tenggara through geothermal and biomass, proposing the modernization upon Eco-tourism around the region, such as the Tana Mori project in Labuan Bajo.
