MOU Signing with STT PLN
In pursuing collaboration in the development and strengthening of renewable energy in Indonesia, MHPP2 and STT PLN agree to undertake activities of mutual interest through cooperation in the field of Indonesia’s renewable energy development. Principally the areas of mutual interest would include: developing and testing new technology and business concepts and approaches, as well as collaborate in training of trainer programmes.
MHPP2 and STT PLN will cooperate in the field of renewable energy, which is designed to support the private sector entrepreneurs and project developers, equipment suppliers and services companies, and civil society in efforts to increase utilisation of renewable energy to Indonesia’s future economic growth and development while at the same time helping to provide rural communities access to modern energy.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) regarding the collaboration has been signed in 31 July 2012 in STT PLN Campus by Dr. Ir. Supriadi Legino (Chairman of STT PLN) and Dr. Rudolf Rauch (Principal Advisor of MHPP2). As an initial activity under the agreement, a technical test of Solar Business System (SBS) will be carried out by STT PLN. STT PLN—with their enthusiastic students—will also undertake a test for SBS business concept in one site in West Java.
Further, cooperation between the two organisations might lead to closer teamwork in capacity building activities such as developing training of trainer programmes as well as formulating course modules for the future renewable energy department in STT PLN.
