Universitas Brawijaya (UB) delegation won the 2nd place in the Business Plan Competition in Renewable Energy which was organized by Access Project UNDP and SDG Indonesia at the end of December 2022 at the SDG Academy Tower, Central Jakarta, Indonesia.
One of UB Delegates, Aditya Bayu Pratama (FT) and Four Other Team Members, Rahayu Anzellina Agustin (FEB), Shelly Diana (FEB), Nurfaisal (FP), and Marcellino Rodericko (FT) designed the concept of business development in the form of internet-integrated beef cattle cages Of Things (IoT) with Triboelectric Solar Modeling. The concept is named “SChiColar” (Smart Chicken Cage Integrated With Solar Energy).
“The SChiColar (Smart Chicken Cage Integrated With Solar Energy) concept will be implemented in Eka Pata Village, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), which has quite a large potential for broiler chickens,” he said.
All concepts of broiler management are carried out automatically, starting from managing the condition of the cage to providing healthy feed and drink, using the integrated Internet Of Things user interface feature.
In addition, to maintain the sanitation and cleanliness of the cage, SChiColar is equipped with UV light sterilization technology that can kill bacteria and viruses, so broilers can be free from disease. The energy source for the entire system at SchiColar uses a Triboelectric Nanogenerator Solar Cell, which is able to maintain the intensity of electrical energy even in rainy or dark weather conditions,” said Bayu briefly.
Bayu hopes that the SCiColar concept, which is designed both in terms of technology and business ergonomics, can be implemented in broiler breeders and provide major commercialization benefits in the future.
“In terms of business analysis, the SchiColar concept is also very supportive and recommended, because it generates greater profits with supporting technology,” said Rahayu.
BPC Renewable Energy is a renewable energy business competition event which is a collaboration of the ACCESS project and the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM). This competition is a forum for students to express their ideas, creativity and interest in the business world related to the availability of electrical energy and to help develop businesses in the village according to the local context.
This event was organized by Acclerating Clean Energy ACCESS to Reduce Inequality (ACCESS), Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and SDG Academy with a series of activity agendas namely business competition, business coaching, followed by Presentation and Awarding Day.
In this event, UB succeeded in sending its best delegation team to enter the top eight in the pitching competition and won 2nd place (2nd Winner). [Humas UB/ Trans. Iir]
