Initiated by GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) in cooperation with RENAC (Renewables Academy) a nationwide delegation‘s trip to Germany comprising of top-ranking representatives of the Indonesian network operator PLN (Persero Listrik Negara) was conducted from May 27th to 30th. Further to various interesting visits to companies like SMA or WIRSOL the tour also included a stopover at BAE Batterien GmbH to visit its production facilities. During a factory tour the guests got first hand impressions on the manufacturing of our “Made in Germany” quality branded products. Especially the experiences gained from following our products through generating its components down to final assembling created wide enthusiasm amongst our guests.
Based on the close cooperation between BAE and HTW Berlin (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin – University of Applied Sciences) a visit was also scheduled to the close by solar house reference project „Living Equia“ following the factory tour. This project was realized by HTW students within the scope of the international ‘Solar Decathlon Europe’ competition. The competition’s intention was to design a house in which its residents will meet their energetic demands solely by solar energy. This impressive realization of a solar house enabling energy efficient living can now be visited on the HTW premises.
Due to the vast extensions of the Indonesian territories it is hardly possible for PLN employees to serve specific regions with detailed know how. Therefore PLN plans to establish a training center to intensify practical experience for engineers and technicians. The delegation’s visit aims to grant an overview and more detailed info on education and advanced training facilities in Germany for renewable energies, photovoltaic, smart grids and net integration/monitoring for PV applications. Since BAE already successfully participated in numerous reference projects in the field of renewable energies there was an intensive exchange of information and experience between guests and BAE experts.
