Energy modeling in Indonesia

Indonesia is working to develop and strengthen the current system of energy modeling in preparation of scenario analysis for 2050 with the aim of achieving a cost-effective breakthrough of renewable energy sources in the Indonesian energy system.


Ea Energy Analyses deliver expert knowledge in modeling power systems through the use of the Balmorel and BalmorelLite models. The project is carried out in close cooperation with the DEA and the Indonesian national energy council (the National Energy Council - NEC) and aims to develop skills for energy modeling in the Indonesian administration.


The project was initiated with a workshop in Jakarta, followed by contributions to the 2016 Energy Outlook for Indonesia and will be finalized with the necessary preparations for long-term scenario analysis.


Workshop in Jakarta

A modeling seminar was held in Jakarta from May 25.-31., where Ea Energy Analyses presented insights of the Balmorel model, relevant case studies, methodology, data requirements, collection, use etc.


Development of a modeling team

Ea Energy Analyses will work closely with the data team of the National Energy Council (NEC) to develop the skills to perform electricity sector analysis and scenarios, by using Balmorel as an integral part of energy planning. The primary focus is to integrate fluctuating renewable energy in the power system and predict future demand and resources.


Preparation of scenario analysis for 2050

In collaboration with NEC, the DEA, the Indonesian partners and other relevant stakeholders, the project will be completed with a draft long-term scenario analysis through to 2050, with the focus of providing descriptions and analysis of the electricity sector and fluctuating energy sources. This will be presented at a workshop in December 2016.


Consultant, Mr. Bjarne Bach, from Ea Energy Analyses is stationed in Jakarta from August to December 2016, where he is providing training of NEC staff in Balmorel modelling and analysis.


The project was initiated in May 2016 and will end in December 2016.
