Energy Efficiency, Conservation And Resilience For Indonesia’s Sustainable Future
27th & 28th November 2014, Jakata

Duncan presented two talks at the inaugural Energy Efficiency, Conservation And Resilience For Indonesia’s Sustainable Future conference held in Jakata. The conference was Indonesia’s first-ever on energy efficiency, as businesses there start to grapple with challenging cost increases for electricity and a reduction of fuel subsidies.

Duncan spoke on Using ICT to Reduce Fuel Costs and Real-time energy metering & monitoring, and used his position as last speaker in each session to sum up the main thrust of the preceding talks and provide an overview for future directions of the sector. (Duncan is shown below with other speakers on Day 2 of the event.)
