Adilla Mutia Fatimah
Adilla Mutia Fatimah joined the Indonesian Institute for Energy Economics (IIEE) in November 2015. She obtained her bachelor degree from Institute of Technology Bandung, majoring in Environmental Engineering. During the final year of her study, she participated in a yearlong student exchange in Japan, where she was admitted to Research Center of Sustainable Energy and Technology, Kanazawa University. Her work on microalgae cultivation for biofuel feedstock triggered her interest for renewable energy resources and technologies, and for this reason she had chosen the theme of second-generation biofuel development for her undergraduate thesis and later on for her research internship in Kyoto University as a part of AMGEN Scholars Program 2015.
In IIEE, Adilla is involved in several projects such as “Survey on Household Use of Energy Efficient Lightbulbs” in partnership with Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and DANIDA Environmental Support Programme, and “Nuclear Power and Small Modular Reactor (SMR) In Indonesia: Potential and Challenges” in cooperation with Princeton University, United States. Her work gives her the experience of identifying problems, setting objectives, and estimating the effect of solutions in order to formulate a policy that supports energy efficiency and renewable energy development. This fits perfectly with her future goal to implement alternative energy technologies to combat environmental and socio-economic problems locally and globally.
