PT Hitachi Astemo Bekasi Manufacturing Inaugurates Solar Power Generation Facility At Hitachi Astemo Bekasi, Indonesia
PT Hitachi Astemo Bekasi Manufacturing, located in Bekasi, West Java, Republic of Indonesia, a group company of Hitachi Astemo, Ltd., held an inauguration ceremony for a roof-installed solar power generation facility. To help the Hitachi Group achieve carbon neutrality in its business and production activities by fiscal 2030, Hitachi Astemo Bekasi has introduced an off-balance sheet, solar power generation scheme in which the company does not own the solar power generation equipment installed at the plant, and instead pays for the electricity it consumes based on the amount it generates. In line with this scheme, the solar panels will start by generating 1,248 kW of electricity and are expected to generate up to approx.1,600 MWh per year in 2022, aiming to reduce emissions by approx.1,200t-CO2 per year.

Renewables Key For Thailand To Overcome Dependency On Fossil Fuel Imports, Says Report
Renewable energy development is key for Thailand to cut its dependency on fossil fuel imports, as gas-based thermal power generation accounted for nearly 61.3% of the country’s annual electricity generation in 2021, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company. GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Thailand Power Market Size, Trends, Regulations, Competitive Landscape and Forecast, 2022-2035’, reveals that depleting natural gas reserves and rising fuel import bills have become major challenges for Thailand. The country’s natural gas reserves are expected to decline sharply by 2030 if no new reserves are found.
