ExploRE - Strategic exploration of economic mitigation potentials through renewables
As of: September 2021
The government of Indonesia is focusing on the expansion of renewable energies (RE) to achieve the country’s climate mitigation targets as defined in its NDC. The project supports the Indonesian government in the dissemination and demonstration through pilot projects of a strategy for cost-effective use of RE. These activities are intended to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions through closely linked energy, financial, and planning policies. To achieve this goal, the project advises the responsible ministries on the development financing guidelines for RE and legislation on feed-in tariffs. Besides, the project supports coordination between key ministries and develops financing instruments to promote private investment in RE. These measures will ensure the expansion of RE in the long term.
State of implementation/results
- In line with the Corona Response Measures, Solar Ice Makers will be set strategically set up at particular sites. This will stimulate the regional manufacturing of the devices as well as support the local fishing communities by securing cold chains.
- 'Bio-Energy goes to Campus': In September an event was held in Medan at the USU (University of North Sumatra) in the context of the RE Outreach program of the project partner EBTKE. Thereby the project and the partner bring the topic of recycling agricultural waste for the production of biogas to another large palm oil growing area outside the central growing area in Kalimantan. The Director of the Faculty of Agriculture, the Deputy Director of the Directorate for Bioenergy (EBTKE) and 250 students attended the event.
