- Bangka Island has significant potential for development of its local industries through harnessing solar power.. Improved availability of a locally generated and cost-efficient energy source is much needed to boost the local economy. Electricity use and access to fuel drives the main, local industry of fishing. They are vital in powering boats for the fishing process, as well as processing and cold storage and remain the key component in the success of local businesses. Providing a photo-voltaic energy source, both on-board the boats and on shore, would give the local industries a substantial boost, with the knock-on effects being felt throughout the surrounding communities. Furthermore, this innovative and integrated approach; utilizing ‘green boats’ at sea in collaboration with a ‘green village’ on land, could become a focus in the emerging and quickly-growing industry of ecotourism – bringing further revenue into the community. The Energy Self-sufficient Village (ESSV) Program, aims to meet at least 60% of these total energy needs, (electricity and fuel), by harnessing local resources, as well as boosting the production capability of the village economy, through offering an available, sustainable, local energy source. The implementation of an E.I.V.P. on Bangka will provide multiple social, economic and environmental benefits - bringing prosperity to the local economy while offering a shining example of environmental innovation to Indonesians and beyond.
