Visit French clean solutions for a sustainable world at the 6th Indonesia EBTKE ConEX 2017 [id]
France will be the featured country with the largest business delegation at the biggest Renewable Energy event to be held in Indonesia, the 6th IndoEBTKE ConEX 2017 next 13 -15 September 2017. Ten French companies and industry associations will present their most advanced clean solutions on the French national pavilion in coordination with the French Renewable Energy Industries Association (SER) with the local support of the French Renewable Energy Group for Indonesia (FREGI) and the French Embassy. The event is held in conjunction with the Bali Clean Energy Forum BCEF 2017 and illustrates the theme “Renewable Energy is a Solution for Energy Security and Paris Agreement”.
Ten French companies and industry associations will attend the 6th IndoEBTKE ConEX 2017 held on 13 -15 September at Balai Kartini Exhibition Center in Jakarta which is amongst the most outstanding conference and exhibition on Clean and Renewable Energy in Indonesia, jointly organized by the Department for New and Renewable Energy of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and by the Indonesian Renewable Energy Society (IRES/METI).
The event will be the opportunity for visitors to witness the showcase of French expertise and know-how in clean technologies and solutions on the French national pavilion.
This initiative illustrates the successful cooperation that Indonesia and France have been maintaining for several years in the area of energy and for which was lately organized a bilateral joint working group meeting in June 2016 in Paris and during which was highlighted the preferred cooperation in renewable energies.
This cooperation was further anchored with the launching of the French Renewable Energy Group for Indonesia (FREGI) and the signature of a memorandum of understanding between METI and SER, the French Renewable Energy Industries Association in February 2017, witnessed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.E Jean-Marc Ayrault, and by the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, H.E Ignasius Jonan. This group brings together, with the active support of the French Embassy in Jakarta, more than 40 members from French public and private sector eager to contribute to the development’s efforts of Indonesia meant to accelerate the energy transition to meet the country’s Paris Climate Agreement objectives and to bring universal access to electricity all across the archipelago.
The French pavilion will feature the presence of two industry associations and eight companies, all members of FREGI, availing themselves of cutting-edge clean technologies : French Renewable Energy Industries Association (SER), Think Smartgrids (French association of smart grids), Bardot Group (marine renewable energies), EDF (French public utility), Engie (geothermal, solar, wind, smart grids), EREN RE (wind, solar), Naval Energies (Ex-DCNS Energies, marine renewable energies), Sabella (marine renewable energies), Socomec (smart power solutions), Vinci Energies (smart grid, energy efficiency). These companies will enjoy the opportunity to highlight their know-how during sector-dedicated plenary sessions.
Created in 1993, the SER – French Renewable Energy Industry Association -, is gathering 380 members working in all the sectors : biomass, wood, biofuels, marine energies, wind energy, geothermal science, hydropower, hot air pumps, photovoltaic solar energy, thermal solar energy and thermodynamics.
The principal objective of the SER is to promote the interests of the industrialists and the professionals of the renewable energy with national public authorities, with the Parliament and with all the institutional players in charge of energy policy, of the industry, of the employment and the research. Abroad, the SER is bringing together the French know-how through export initiatives, such as France Solar Industry, accompanying the companies to develop partnerships, businesses, and technology transfer in new promising market. The SER is also working with government for capacity building on subjects related to RE (policy, support mechanisms, environmental issues, training, integration to the grid…).
On September 1st, 2017, the SER represents a 10 billion euros turnover and 75 000 jobs in the field of the renewable energies. On the horizon 2020, all the sectors of the renewable energies should represent 224 000 jobs in France.

In its aim to create a “Team France” of smart grids stakeholders, the professional association Think Smartgrids, created in April 2015, ensures the development of the French sector among the world’s greatest economies and in a global market estimated to be worth 30 billion Euros. Through the promotion of the French smart grids solutions in Europe and around the world, the association hopes to create 10 000 direct jobs by 2020, and a revenue of 6 billion Euros (with 50% from export.)
FREGI promotes French renewable energy solutions and supports its members to facilitate their development in Indonesia. The Group represents all the clean technologies including - but not limited to - bioenergy, wind energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, hydropower, marine energies, smart grid or waste-to-energy. The Group aims at integrating the different components of the renewable energies’ value chain, from engineering and project finance to operation of industrial and/or commercial facilities going through supply of equipment and technological and software solutions. FREGI supports Indonesia’s efforts to accelerate the energy transition to meet the country’s Paris Climate Agreement objectives and to achieve universal access to electricity by promoting clean, safe and sustainable technologies and solutions.
