Indonesia Activities

CASE has identified nine activities based on common regional key chellanges to the energy transition that could be addressed with activities at the country level. This means that a regional framework is applied and implemented at the country level by local experts, involving key stakeholders and reflectins and addressing local circumstances and concerns

1. Research Gap Analysis of Energy Transition Study in Indonesia

In order to provide a well-designed policy advice, it is essential to look on the existing studies that have been done and analyse the gap of studies needed to provide policy advice and accelerate energy transition process. The key objectives of the assignment for the consultant are :

  • Create an inventory of energy-transition-related researches or studies that are exist and ongoing. The focus sector of researches or studies is in power sector.
  • Provide a research gap analysis based on studies inventory and come up with the list of key topics that important to be brought in the next study or researches.
  • Deliver a study recommendation to shape energy transition in Indonesia especially after rising issue of carbon neutral in Indonesia energy sector

Status :

This work is being carried out by a consultant. The consultant has provided 1st draft of the report and CASE ID have provided feedback.
The study is expected to be completed this August.

2. Synthesis Study: Derisking RE Investment in Indonesia

There have been several studies on RE investment derisking in Indonesia. But, the problem is still there. Through this synthesis study, we would like to identify gaps and proposed solutions, and find better solutions from all.

3. Synthesis Study: Co-firing as a viable option for energy transition

Ministry of Energy and Resource Mineral (MEMR) of Indonesia is currently considering the role of Co-firing as one of the methods to accelerate the use of new and RE in Indonesia. The objective of the MEMR is to understand if utilization of biomass raw materials (waste pellets and wood pellets) as well as municipal solid waste waste can be used in existing coal-fired power plants in a co-firing fashion, in order to reduce the use of of coal. However, many questions remain open, in particular with regards to the sustainability and environmental footprint of co-firing, as well as the financial implications and state budget requirement to support co-firing.

The proposed study intends to support the discussion by providing additional information.

Event/Webinar organized together with Tempo (media group in Indonesia).

Topic options (as discussed with Bappenas):

  1. 1st Multistakeholder discussion/webinar (July 2021):
    a. Energy Transition impact on national economy, national recovery, GHG emission reduction
    b. Awareness of the utilization of finance instruments (BPDLH, PT SMI, LPI, ICCTF, etc) and private sector engagement for Energy Transition
  2. 2nd Multistakeholder discussion/webinar (August 2021):
    a. Energy Transition impact on national economy, national recovery, GHG emission reduction
    b. Awareness of the utilization of finance instruments (BPDLH, PT SMI, LPI, ICCTF, etc) and private sector engagement for Energy Transition

7. Multistakeholder Discussion on Green Taxonomy

Agreed between Bappenas and OJK in March 2021

Currently, the Green Taxonomy document is drafted by IFC and OJK.

The event will happen after OJK (supported by IFC) is finishing the document.

Potential collaboration with SFF Green Infrastructures (Sonny) will try to review the document (together with IFC).

Planned

Output to Address : 3

8. Webinar with Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) on Net Zero Indonesia by 2050

Based on the BAU scenario in 2030, energy will be the highest contributor to Indonesian GHG emission with almost quadrupling 2010 emission. Therefore, a more ambitious objective would be needed to achieve the global UNFCCC scenario.

One of the ways to ensure comprehension from key players and the public is through creating dialogues. Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) in cooperation with Institute for Essential Services under the Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy for Southeast Asia (CASE) Project presents a public discussion to mainstream public discourse on energy transition.

Status :

Planned for 24th August 2021

Output to Address : 3

9. Coal-phase down dialogue

The objectives of this event:
1) Discussing the role of Coal Industry in the energy transition process

2) Experienced/ lesson learned from Germany, plus other country (1x SEA regional (VN or PH), and Chile).

Status :

Planned for October 2021

Output to Address : 4

10. CASE Contribution in Indonesian Energy Transition Dialogue (IETD) 2021

Like IETD 2020, in this year IETD 2021 CASE ID will also contribute by having CASE representative as moderators, speakers and panelist.

More information on IETD 2021 : ietd.info

11. Journalist Training 2021

Energy transition adaptation can be propelled by media empowerment. The hype of energy transition is happening not only because the impact of climate change is already here, but also the size of the audience and available media channels are simply enormous . Media play huge role in our daily life, from informing us about how the government policies affect us until functioning to provide feedback to the government on their policies and programs.

Looking at news landscape in Indonesia, a media analysis report on Indonesia commissioned by the Stanley Center for Peace and Security and produced by Climate Tracker in 2020 indicated that news articles in Indonesia framed coal in positive tone and there were no articles that discussed coal phase out. Additionally, this report also pointed out that renewable energy news has limited sources for the journalists to cite/interview, and even if there are sources, they are too technical. As a result, not only the readers, but the journalists are sometimes confused. Therefore, it was difficult for journalists to dive deeper into specific renewable energy reporting in Indonesia.

In this context, IESR is looking for a contractor to design a training program for Indonesian journalists with sound and measurable action plans under budget optimization management in order to raise awareness across different target groups around the question of energy transition through journalistic products.

Status :

  • Planned to be conducted from July-October 2021.
  • We just got the vendor on July 26, 2021.

13. Discussion series on energy transition with CSO, media, public

IESR is looking for Indonesian partner (usually that has big followers/groups) to host discussion on energy transition. This will help us in spreading the information on energy transition to more audience.
