INDUSTRY.co.id - Surabaya - In a public lecture at the Rectorate Building of Ten November Institute of Technology (ITS) Surabaya, Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Ignasius Jonan mentioned 3 (three) important elements that will change the future global economic order in the medium term.

"I think the new economy in the future in the very near future there are three, namely New Renewable Energy (EBT) power plants, electric vehicles, and online business," said Jonan in front of the academic community of ITS, Friday (9/2 / 2018).

In order to respond to the new economic challenge, said Jonan, the Government continues to intensively build an EBT-based power plant. For the year 2017, the national EBT generating capacity has increased by 3.4% from a year earlier, by 9.1 Gigawatt (GW) from 8.8 GW in 2016.

In order to maintain the contribution of EBT generator, the big target of infrastructure development in 2018 will be boosted, including the construction of the first phase of the Sidrap Bayu Power Plant (PLTB) and the second phase development plan, Jeneponto PLTB, PLTB Tanah Laut, Larantuka Marine Flow Plant, Wadubori, to PLTMH Warabiai.

Related to electric vehicles, the Government of Indonesia's commitment is to bring electric vehicle technology and pour it in Presidential Regulation No. 22 of 2017 on the National General Energy Plan.

It is projected to increase the population of electric or hybrid vehicles in 2025 by 2,200 units of cars and 2.1 million units of motorcycles.

The Government is also currently drafting a Presidential Regulation on the Electric Motor Vehicle Acceleration Program for Road Transport that has entered the finalization stage.

Looking ahead, the banking world is also predicted to also begin to shift. The existence of the bank physically will change its form becomes simpler through the online system. "Later 10 more years will run out (physical banking) this," said Jonan.

Further, the next big challenge faced by Jonan is how to provide energy access to all levels of society at an affordable price.

"It is our great challenge how to run the fifth precept, which is social justice for all Indonesian people as the President said," concluded Jonan.
