JAKARTADAILY.ID - The main agenda of the G20 presidency of Indonesia, as directed by the President of the Republic of Indonesia, is narrowed into three areas, namely global health architecture, digital transformation, and energy transition.

Aside from realizing equitable vaccination, the three agendas also aim to accelerate digitalization and drive the global coordination for agreements related to financing climate change. Thus, eco-friendly technologies need to be considered.

In addition, the balance between supply and demand must also be met. However, if the energy supply has not been able to meet national needs, the government will handle the energy deficit by implementing eco-friendly energy.

As quoted from G20pedia, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources has determined the principles and strategies of Net Zero Emission to be carried out at the G20 Summit.

The first effort would be to reduce fossil energy by several means, including carbon tax & trading, co-firing electric steam power plants with new renewable energy as well as decommissioning steam power plants. The second is by increasing the use of electricity in households and industry. The third is the use of carbon capture and storage. Fourth is by expanding the use of new and renewable energy. Fifth is by implementing electric vehicles in the transportation sector.

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources will present the focus of the issue regarding the energy transition — from energy security to technology — in a discussion and cooperation forum at the Group of Twenty Summit or the G20 Summit. The Energy Transitions Working Group (ETWG) will focus on energy security, energy access, and efficiency, as well as the energy transition to a low-carbon energy system, including investment and innovation in cleaner and more efficient technologies.

Through the G20 large forum, Indonesia has the opportunity to encourage the world's collective efforts to generate policies to accelerate global economic recovery inclusively. Indonesia also has the opportunity to show the world its full support for the global energy transition.

Since the G20 member countries account for about 75 percent of global energy demand, the G20 countries have a big responsibility and strategic role in encouraging the use of clean energy. The ETWG will focus the discussion on energy security, access and efficiency, and the transition to low-carbon energy systems, as well as investment and innovation in cleaner and more efficient technologies.
