Potential areas for the development of renewable energy system in Kepulauan Seribu Regency: Case study for tourism sector in Putri Island and Ayer Island

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Kepulauan Seribu Regency is one of the priorities of tourism development areas in Indonesia which triggers an increase in electricity demand as one of the primary needs of tourism activities. The existing condition of energy fulfillment for resort islands is diesel power plants (standalone). Meanwhile, renewable energy sources can be used as energy source in Kepulauan Seribu Regency. The purpose of this study is to find out the potential of energy that can be produced by renewable energy system based on the area suitability of communal photovoltaic and offshore wind turbine using Spatial Multi Criteria Analysis method. The results indicate-that based on the mapping of the suitability area, the renewable energy system that has the potential to be developed on Putri Island and Ayer Island is a communal photovoltaic system, while the wind turbine system is not suitable for both islands. The study concluded that the potential energy that can be generated by Photovoltaic system is found greater in Putri Island which is located in the North Kepulauan Seribu if it is compared to Ayer Island which is located in the South Kepulauan Seribu.
