Assessment of Lombok Biomass Energy Project

Indonesia | February 2021 - August 2022

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

The project proposal presented by the Indonesian partners was 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 was 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 ran from February 2021 to August 2022.
