Pontianak, 21 May 2022 – Educational institutions have actively contributed by taking a role in energy transition efforts, not only through the use of new and renewable energy, Educational Institutions have also played a role as centers of knowledge development through scientific studies and research, improvement of human resources, and quality improvement in terms of developing new renewable energy in Indonesia. Of course, this also supports the introduction of renewable energy as clean energy which is a form of energy in the future to students who are part of the younger generation.

It is known that there are a number of names of educational institutions that have developed PV mini-grid systems in Indonesia, today, SUN Energy as a solar energy project development company that has recorded more than 250 MWp projects in the Asia Pacific region, has added another 8 project portfolio in the Educational Institutions Area. , namely Tanjungpura University located in Pontianak, West Kalimantan with a capacity of 1.5 MWp. PLTS which will break the record as PLTS with the largest capacity among other educational institutions in Indonesia was inaugurated by several parties, including; Director General of Higher Education Kemdikbudristek, Prof. Ir.
