Sidarto Danusubroto as a Member of the Presidential Advisory Council elaborates, “The Indonesian economic growth is related to the government’s support for digitalization and investment. This is especially visible in the energy and mining sector. For instance, Indonesiah as just adopted the 5G technology for Smart Mining in Eastern Indonesia, the first in South East Asia. What does it mean? Considerable opportunities are opened up for the digitalization of working process in the energy, construction, and infrastructure sectors, especially in terms of operations, and the government takes pride in the participation of young talents.” In addition, he asserts that the government has included human resources development as the mainstream of national development strategies to accelerate economic growth, and advocated the Sustainability Development Goals (SDG).

In the opening of the IEE2022 Series, Basilio Dias Araujo as the Deputy for Maritime Sovereignty and Energy Coordination conveys that the energy sector also needs qualified human resources, who are able to implement digital technology. “The energy sector is one of Indonesia’s largest assets, which requires efficient management. Improvement of human resources capabilities and digital technology are several attempts to realize it. In fact, the current implementation of renewable energy (EBT) as the main effort to achieve energy security has just reached 5% of the 30% target in 2045,”Basilio reveals. He explains further that the EBT and digitalization in the energy sector are highly important to accelerate the green energy transformation and accomplish zero carbon emissions in 2060, as well as to implement the previously planned SDG programs related to energy security.
