Shizen Energy Inc. (“Shizen Energy”) and Alamport Inc. (“Alamport”) announced that we started the construction to install rooftop solar power plants (total of 4.2 MW) at 13 locations including factories and shops in Indonesia in April 2021.
Shizen Energy and Alamport established a local subsidiary, PT ATW Alam Hijau, in collaboration with the ATW Group, which is the local partner engaged in the engineering, procurement, and construction of solar power plants. The companies are jointly developing the solar power generation business in Indonesia through PT ATW Alam Hijau. PT ATW Alam Hijau will install and manage a total of 4.2MW of rooftop solar power plants at a total of 13 facilities.
13 facilities as written above include: (1) two pharmaceutical factories of PT Bintang Toedjoe, the subsidiary belongs to one of the largest pharmaceutical groups (Kalbe Farma Group) in Southeast Asia; (2) nine vehicles dealer showrooms of PT Agung Automall, the exclusive distributor of Toyota vehicles in some regions in Indonesia; and (3) two timber factories of PT Sumber Graha Sejahtera under brand SAMPOERNA KAYOE, which exports mainly to Japan and Europe. The electricity generated will be supplied directly to each facility.
Supplying clean, cost-competitive and renewable energy from these rooftop solar power plants, the project will contribute to reducing their average electricity cost without incurring any initial investment. In addition, as the mainstream power generation method in Indonesia is coal-based thermal power, switching a portion of electricity consumption to renewable energy sources will contribute to the effective GHG (greenhouse gas) reduction in business activities. Overall, the project is expected to generate 6,151MWh of electricity per year, with annual GHG reductions of 3,772t-CO2 in total.
This project has been selected for a Financing Programme for the Joint Crediting Mechanism (“JCM”) Model Projects in FY2020, by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (“MOEJ”), with Alamport as the representative participant and Shizen Energy as one of partner participants. The project is implemented under the cooperation between the government of Indonesia and Japan.
Shizen Energy defines its PURPOSE of the company to “take action for the blue planet.” Achieving its PURPOSE requires a broader use of safe and sustainable energy through renewable power plants development worldwide. We believe our course of actions will make more people live happily on Earth. Shizen Energy will strive to realize a “100% renewable-powered planet”, through development, construction, operations, and maintenance of renewable energy power plants that are high quality and community-driven.
Alamport aims to develop, promote, and realize projects that contribute to the development of people’s lives and industries through partnerships with local and Japanese companies, focusing on renewable energy that can utilize Indonesia’s abundant natural resources.
