Strategic Partnership Green & Inclusive Energy
Renewable energy for all
Indonesia has signed the Paris Agreement and ratified it in October 2016. Based on the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), Indonesia has confirmed its commitment to reduce 29% of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by own effort. One of the strategies is increasing renewable energy use in the national energy mix; targeting a rise from 5% in 2010 to 23% at 2025 and 25% in 2030. This target requires the government to develop an integrated policy and planning framework, including but not limited to: progressive policy and regulatory framework for opening the markets, fiscal policy, and financial incentives to encourage investment in green energy infrastructure, strengthen the electricity network (grid), strengthen the participation of communities and communities in the development and management of renewable energy infrastructures, and promote gender equality in energy program.
To support in achieving this target, contribution from external parties especially civil society organizations (CSOs), private sectors, and energy consumer groups is important. Public participation and involvement are an important component for meeting clean and inclusive energy needs because the energy sector tends to have a thick political nuance and attracts many interests. Without the involvement of CSOs and public in formulating policies, targets, and development priorities in the energy sector, as well as in monitoring the development and quality of existing regulations; planning in the energy sector and its implementation will be difficult to meet the broader needs and interests of the public.
The Partnership is a civil society partnership aiming to meet clean and inclusive energy needs for the community which creates economic opportunities, promotes gender justice, and supports climate change mitigation.The Partnership has 3 main outputs:
- Society, civil society organizations, and mass media have understood energy issues comprehensively, possess common visions for energy in Indonesia, and build strong networks to accelerate the development of inclusive, clean energy system in Indonesia
- Indonesian government has issued a set of policies, regulations, funding, and incentives that support the development of decentralized and gender- and socially inclusive clean energy system.
- Indonesian government has implemented gender mainstreaming strategy in developing clean energy system.
In this Partnership, Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR) works with Hivos Southeast Asia, Indonesian Consumers Foundation (YLKI), and Indonesian Women’s Coalition (KPI).
In implementing this Partnership IESR works to:
- Increase the role of civil society groups in the development of policies and funding for clean, gender- and socially inclusive energy system in Indonesia;
- Build capacity and knowledge of civil society groups and communities on clean and inclusive energy issues;
- Promote decentralized clean energy policies
