Assessment of Lombok Biomass Energy Project

Indonesia | February 2021 - December 2021

Ea Energy Analyses is assisting DSIF (Danida Sustainable Infrastructure Finance) in assessing whether a biomass project on the Indonesian island of Lombok is eligible for DSIF funding and can move forward.

The project proposal presented by the Indonesian partners is to construct a 20-40 MW biomass power plant, using residues from rice and corn cultivation. Lombok has no fossil energy resources and is presently dependent on imported coal and expensive diesel for electricity generation. The purpose is to introduce a more sustainable and hopefully cheaper source of energy into the energy mix, and hence contribute to the reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions.

The project runs from February to December 2021.
