Background

Indonesia is the country with the largest energy consumption in ASEAN as well as the best potential source for geothermal and hydro resources for energy generation. Due to the growth of the economy and thus energy consumption, it is imperative for Indonesia to focus on renewable energy generation and new technologies for efficiency and building a clean energy economy.

Technology for renewable energy generation and low carbon emissions, efficient distribution and transmission as well as optimal consumption is important to the future development of the energy sector. Technology and the price of renewable energy is no longer the obstacle for the growth of clean energy. Enabling business models, software, capital, and innovative services would catalyze the transition to a clean energy economy.

Digitaraya Powered by Google Developers Launchpad collaborates with New Energy Nexus SEA, an initiative to support smart energy startup in Southeast Asia created by CalCEF and GIZ in 2017, with a purpose of supporting young entrepreneurs to work in the energy sector. Nexus SEA’s mission is to accelerate the smart energy startup ecosystem in Southeast Asia by supporting the creation of hundreds of new energy startups that transform the energy system in Southeast Asia.
