GFA Consulting Group - Rural Electrification through Renewable Energy (ELREN)

The project responds to a situation marked by an increasing energy demand, greater political will from the Government and accordingly higher budgets, and high economic and technical potential for off-grid-electrification from RE-sources especially on remote islands. At the same time, the RE-sector is characterised by a multitude of ministerial program that are currently uncoordinated, and by a lack of organizational capacity, skills, and standardised approaches in the public and private sector both at national and regional level. The core problem that the project addresses is that the knowledge needed to use RE for off-grid electrification is not institutionalised.

GFA Consulting Group - Rural Electrification through Renewable Energy (ELREN)

The project responds to a situation marked by an increasing energy demand, greater political will from the Government and accordingly higher budgets, and high economic and technical potential for off-grid-electrification from RE-sources especially on remote islands. At the same time, the RE-sector is characterised by a multitude of ministerial program that are currently uncoordinated, and by a lack of organizational capacity, skills, and standardised approaches in the public and private sector both at national and regional level. The core problem that the project addresses is that the knowledge needed to use RE for off-grid electrification is not institutionalised.

Project Objectives

The objective for the technical cooperation module is defined as follows: “Knowledge about using renewable energy for off-grid electrification is institutionalized.” A number of secondary objectives are named:

  • Poverty reduction
  • Environmental protection and resource conservation by promoting preferential use of RE
  • Mitigation of greenhouse gases
  • Energy security

GIZ Indonesia - Organisational Concept for a Green Energy Center for Mitigation Technologies

The GIZ PAKLIM recently initiated technical cooperation with the provincial Government of East Java to support the implementation of the JATIM RAD-GRK (National Centre of National Action Plan for Greenhouse Gas Reduction). One of the main identified barriers to renewable energy and energy efficiency is the lack of awareness and knowledge concerning opportunities to economically mitigate GHG in individual industries.

In this context, the provincial government emphasised the need for an institution to provide knowledge about renewable energies and energy efficiency to related industrial entities in order to enhance their knowledge on the design and implementation of GHG mitigation measures. In regard to this, GIZ and East Java Province came up with the idea to establish a Green Energy Centre (GEC) to support the provincial government in mainstreaming the local action plan and to promote EE and RE in buildings, industries, and small and medium enterprises (SME) in addition to the research in the energy sector. The Institute of Technology BPPT at the university “Sepuluh Nopember” in Surabaya is considered to be the potential institution for the implementation of the GEC.

Project Activities

  • Elaboration of an interview guideline to gather the needed information from potential stakeholders and clients
  • Compilation, assessment and analysis of experiences and approaches of ongoing projects and former related initiatives such as the "Sustainable Consumption and Cleaner Production Program"
