Powering the Archipelago with Green Prosperity.

450 new jobs were created in Mentawai after the construction of the bamboo biomass power plant

CPI Approach

When we say ‘powering the archipelago’, we mean more than just reliable electrification throughout Indonesia, including the most remote areas. With the green jobs approach, we believe that all green energy efforts should result in economic opportunities for the surrounding communities. Green jobs mean the improvement of livelihood that includes:

  • Job creation
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Community engagement

The business model applied by CPI in the biomass-based power plant development is always community-centered:

With the aggregated power of 700 kW generated by the project, the communities in the villages are directly benefiting. The economic situation of the villages can be stabilised, and growth is expected with future installations of cold storage units, improvements in agroforestry, and increased electricity access for commercial and productive uses.

Bamboo harvesting provides jobs, and also allows farmers to diversify their income streams, reducing their vulnerability to crop failure and helping them adapt to climate change.

Furthermore, around 450 direct jobs were created in the villages – 150 jobs in each. This proves that production and sale of bamboo provide income and livelihood opportunities, contributing to alleviating income disparities, and improving the livelihoods of communities.

Ongoing and potential Green Jobs creation:

  • Replication of the Mentawai in the villages Soe, Kefamenanu, and Ponu in NTT. The most probable and suitable source to be planted and sold by the local communities is Gamal. Project stage: Completion pre-feasibility study.
  • Replication in Ponu will create job opportunities by approximately 2000 permanent positions through BUMDES, BUMD, and IPP.

The 5 MW of MSW gasification project in Solo and the 400 KW to 1 MW of MSW gasification development in Bali are still in development, but there are possibilities for community-based entrepreneurial efforts for the collection and selection of MSW that will be the feedstock of the waste-to-energy plants.

According to the Tangerang Integrated Waste Treatment project, 441 employees will be needed in management and operations. Aside from the formal sector, this project is also inclusive of the informal sector. Garbage collectors, existing local workers, and supporting vendors (transportation, F&B) will benefit from the construction of this project.
