Green Technology Initiative for a More Energy-Efficient Jakarta

September 2, 2013

Jakarta, Indonesia – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) and PT Eco Energi Persada (EEP) are collaborating to make Jakarta a more energy-efficient and liveable city, as seen by the launch today of a pilot project to make TransJakarta bus shelters energy-saving. This application of energy-efficient technology to Jakarta’s infrastructure is a concrete example of the government of Jakarta’s effort to encourage the use of sustainable-energy technology in its public facilities.

 

“Our investment is proof of EEP’s commitment with our partners in Indonesia to create greener and more energy-efficient cities. This partnership with a global company is part of our strategy to develop green technology for Indonesia. Through the application of technology, we expect that Jakarta will be able to significantly reduce electricity usage,” said Bernardus Djonoputro, Managing Director of EEP. EEP initiated the concept of solar-powered bus shelters in partnership with Philips and is supplying the solar panels.

 

Philips’ role in this collaboration is to provide the LED lighting solution which could reduce electricity usage up to 85% and is eco-friendly with a life span up to 15 years. “We understand the importance to a city to have public transportation facilities that are not only energy-efficient, but that can also contribute to the city’s livability. Therefore, Philips is proud to partner and play a role in making TransJakarta bus shelters greener with our latest LED lighting technology,” said Robert Fletcher, President Director of Philips Indonesia.

 

In response to this partnership effort to support the initiative of making Jakarta greener and more energy-efficient, the Head of the Jakarta City Office for Building Supervision and Monitoring, I Putu Ngurah Indiana said, “Let’s maintain our environment by saving water and energy.”

 

Besides the Polda Metro Jaya bus stop, Philips has already applied its energy-saving LED lighting solution at the TransJakarta bus shelter in Pejaten, South Jakarta, across from the Philips Indonesia head office. The idea to install LED lighting at this bus shelter and the overhead pedestrian bridge came from one of the winners of Philips’ innovation competition, the “+” (“Plus”) Project. The “+” Project by Philips seeks to deliver innovation to help improve the quality of people’s lives in Indonesia.

 

The use of sustainable energy in cities all over the world is an important step to create a comfortable and efficient city. This initiative by PT EEP and Philips in Jakarta is expected to be a model that can be applied to other public facilities in other cities in Indonesia.
