ExploRE - Strategic exploration of economic mitigation potentials through renewables
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
The project supports Indonesia in implementing a deployment strategy for renewable energy (RE). Least-cost approaches for RE mitigate green house gas (GHG) emissions, and a common energy, finance, and planning policy across key actors are demonstrated in pilots and contribute directly to climate mitigation targets. Here, the project advises on renewable energy funding guidelines and feed-in legislation and actively supports a coordinated implementation across key actors. Fiscal tools and financing instruments are developed and communicated to the private sector. Private investment in RE is mobilised and long-term financing options for expanding RE technologies and deployment are ensured. In addition, access to international climate mitigation funds is supported. The project is part of the IKI Corona Response Package.

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.
