Utilization of Hybrid Energy in Creating Self-reliance of Coastal Community in Yogyakarta, Indonesia through Tourist Villages

Dana Herdi
Abstract—Indonesia has the potential wind and solar energy sources provided fairly well. From the wind energy sector, there are at least 166 potential points and 34 points of which have above 50 m/s of wind speed. While for solar energy, almost the whole of Indonesia has potential intensity of sunlight for about 2000 kWh/m2. This is only in mountainous regions such as Sumatera and Papua, which have intensity of 1400 kWh/m2 below. The potentialities are almost located in the coastal areas of Indonesian Archipelago. However, 80% of the 10.666 coastal villages has not precisely have the electricity yet. The incapability of the government to develop any energy sources exept Power Plant powered by fossil fuels is one of the weaknesses. The government tends to focusses on the macro scale of electrification development to meet a demand for the electricity in Indonesia. The windmill tourism village program is a productive action to be an answer in the electrification fulfillment in rural area which is difficult to solve by the government all the time. The program is believed to be able to solve the electrification matter up towards the self-sufficiency of electricity in the rural area. Besides, the program can be used as the new tourism object resort to educate the public around and traveler concerning renewable energy through the coastal society approach.

Index Terms—Coastal society, tourism, renewable energy, windmill village.
