The coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic has impacted many people since it started a few months ago in Indonesia with more than one hundred thousand people infected. A lot of people attended work or school from home, were restricted in doing their outdoor activities, or lost their jobs due to the regulations implemented] for limiting the spread of the virus.
This is a given situation that I have to accept when progressing my work in the renewable energy sector. I have been trying to accomplish my job from home such as conducting online trainings, meetings, communication, reporting, and consultancy work. Furthermore, I have started to prepare some projects to be implemented since the social restriction is gradually lifted.
I believe that my current work to implement rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at commercial and industrial buildings could give particular support to many companies or organizations to get a more efficient and sustainable source of energy to run their business. Their operational strength would increase due to cost savings and reliable energy supply. During this pandemic period, they are also expected to be more capable of surviving while they have to work at a minimum operational level. Hopefully, these ongoing efforts will enable us to maintain jobs for the people in the energy sector as well.
