Development of NAMA for energy efficient cooling and air conditioning in industry and business (Green Chillers) in Indonesia

As of: October 2018

Objective and activities

The project provides support to Indonesia in creating and implementing a reliable framework for fostering energy efficiency in the cooling and air-conditioning sector. Since national demand for these technologies is rapidly increasing, improving their energy efficiency could mean a key contribution to the national climate change mitigation goals. The project establishes inventories and projections of reduction potentials in the industrial and cooling sectors; advises in the development of nationally appropriate mitigation action (NAMA) with specific measures for using energy efficient cooling technologies; and provides policy-makers with information on options for promoting emission reductions through NAMAs and for creating incentives for fostering efficient cooling and air-conditioning technologies. In addition, the project supports the development of a financing strategy and an economic efficiency analysis, and for submitting these to the UNFCCC.

State of implementation/results

  • Sector analyses started for developing NAMA
  • Website for existing training materials on NAMA established
  • Main responsibility for developing national GHG inventory for the cooling sector established with the Directorate General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (EBTKE)
  • Workshop on "Developing a RAC NAMA"
  • Event on “Promoting Green Chillers” in Jakarta
  • Technical workshop on “Safety and Energy Efficiency Standard of Green Chiller” in Bogor
  • MoU between EBTKE and PERTAMINA for piloting energy efficient cooling appliances using natural refrigerants signed for the sites of PERTAMINA
  • Indonesian delegation in Germany: Chillventa participation and organization of the first „German-Indonesian Dialogue on Energy Efficiency: Climate-friendly refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) in commercial and industrial applications“
  • MoU between EBTKE and Phapros on the implementation of two propane-based chillers for the pharmaceutical production signed
  • MoU between the University of Indonesia and EBTKE and installation of the first pilot project: a green chiller in a new university auditorium which serves for research and training purposes at the same time
  • In addition two green chillers installed for training of technicians at the polytechnic university in Bandung and Bali in May 2017
  • For the certification of local technicians, two "train the trainer" training on the safety and energy efficient handling of natural refrigerants conducted, including a final examination through the Indonesian certification body BNSP in July 2017
  • First Indonesian inventory of the RAC sector completed and presented to more than 70 representatives of ministries (energy, industries, environment and planning) and of private economy (chiller manufactures and their suppliers)
  • In 12/2017 a propane-based "roof-mounted air-conditioning system" for room air-conditioning with an output of 60 kW was put into operation in an office building of Pertamina (the largest Indonesian mineral oil and natural gas company) R&D
  • in 12/2017 and 01/2018, two 231.9 KW propane-based refrigeration systems were installed on the production site of the pharmaceutical company PT Phapros in Semarang for the production and storage of medical products
  • Between 11/2017 and 02/2018, a total of 87 refrigeration technicians were trained in the safe and energy-efficient use of flammable refrigerants in six one-week training courses at the Bandung and Bali Polytechnic Colleges, of which 68 subsequently passed the assessments of the National Certification Body for Professions
  • In 03/2018 EBTKE submitted a project proposal for a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) to the NAMA Facility in cooperation with the project: The Indonesia Green Cooling Program (IGCP) NAMA aims to introduce energy-efficient and climate-friendly split appliances into the Indonesian refrigeration market in order to make a significant contribution to Indonesia's National Determined Contribution (NDC), with the aim of saving 12.72 Mt CO2eq emissions by 2030, increasing national added value and raising the level of training for refrigeration technicians.
