GREE New Energy develops, finances, builds and operates biogas-to-energy projects in Indonesia. We provide international project development experience and financial capabilities together with local market understanding. Hamparan, our first project is one of the largest grid-connected biogas-to-energy projects in Indonesia. With a portfolio of over 1.000 MW, we are expanding our business and its positive impacts on the people and the environment.
In the absence of oxygen, microorganisms break down organic matter and clean troublesome wastewater by producing biogas - a highly valuable hydrocarbon. This wastewater treatment technology through anaerobic digestion was first developed in the 30s. Due to pressure from environmental-related legislation, it became a mainstream option in developed countries. Since early 2000s, it has become a proven and well-established technology for energy generation. Biogas electricity generation has increased dramatically in European Union countries reaching 62.5 TWh in 2016, around a quarter of the electricity consumed in Indonesia that year.
"This cooperation (between PLN & GREE) shows the commitment of PT PLN Distribution Lampung to acquire electricity from Independent Power Producers to help meet Lampung Province’s electricity needs. We expect to build a successful and long lasting partnership with GREE."
