Renewable energy has gained favor due to global concerns about the environment and climate issues, as well as improved supportive policies. On the morning of September 22nd, during the “Rise of Renewable Energy and the New Energy Industry” forum at the NEXT Summit (Bali 2022), experts from various countries discussed the development direction and prospects of new energy and renewable energy.
The international NEXT Summit (Bali 2022), themed ” Global Change and Rebuilding Collaboration” was held in a hybrid format of online and offline forums from September 19th to 29th. Multiple exciting forums were presented at the summit, featuring cutting-edge speeches and case studies in various industries, providing a global platform for top-level knowledge and information exchange.
Li Xinnong, President of the Jiangxi Association of Science and Technology Innovation Talents and Chairman of XinYu Boxun Automobile Co., Ltd., expressed his views on the new energy industry from the perspective of intelligent fire IoT systems and high-end fire equipment manufacturing. He discussed the importance of innovative iterations in components and system technologies to adapt to more diverse application scenarios in the new energy industry.
With the increasing complexity of firefighting, rescue, and social assistance, the advantages of using unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) in various situations such as earthquake rescue, flood response, mountain rescue, and large-span or high-rise fires have become apparent. Li Xinnong expressed confidence in the future of intelligent fire IoT.
Regarding technological iterations, Li Xinnong believes that to continuously progress in the field of intelligent fire IoT, it is crucial to increase investment in product research and development based on user feedback and demands. The key lies in continually iterating and developing products with advantages and convenient operations.
Dr. Tom Qi, Senior Researcher at the New Zealand Maritime Institute of the Manukau Institute of Technology, shared his perspective on the “fundamental reconstruction of transportation vehicles in a changing world.” He emphasized that in the future, with the premise of the Internet of Things, transportation vehicles can provide customized services and conduct customized production. However, Tom Qi also emphasized the importance of human-centric thinking from various perspectives such as business, technology, and design to continuously optimize the transportation systems based on user needs.
Eniya Listiani Dewi, a research professor at BRIN Indonesia, Chairperson of the Indonesian Polymr Association, and Chairperson of the Indonesian Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Association, shared some insights on energy transition during the forum. She mentioned that the Indonesian president has set a goal of achieving zero carbon emissions by 2060, which requires continuous scientific research progress throughout society. Currently, renewable energy accounts for only 12% of the energy usage, and it is necessary to increase it to 23% by 2025 and achieve zero carbon emissions by 2060. This requires reducing the use of resources such as coal, introducing new energy sources, and establishing an intelligent society.
Andhika Prastawa, Vice Chairman of the Indonesian Renewable Energy Association (METI), also expressed during the forum that renewable energy in Indonesia has great potential but requires more efforts to strengthen energy transition. Within the next three to four years, achieving a usage share of 11% or higher for clean energy is a challenging task that requires maximum efforts to promote the realization of targets and complete the energy transition.
The 6th NEXT Summit (Bali 2022) was co-hosted by the NEXT Federation, China Economic Information Service, and Indonesia’s National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN). The NEXT Federation is a global platform for integrating and transforming industrial resources, promoting global innovation, cooperation, and development through discovering intelligent practices, sharing advantageous resources, and improving public relations. Its headquarters are located in Auckland, New Zealand. China Economic Information Service is a professional economic information service organization directly affiliated with Xinhua News Agency.
