Energy Program Indonesia/ASEAN plays a prominent role in enabling local actors to adopt renewable energy solutions for the people’s benefit through 4 (four) joint-implemented projects, namely Energising Development (EnDev), Promotion of Least Cost Renewables in Indonesia (LCORE), Development of a NAMA for Energy-Efficient Cooling System and Cold Supply in Indonesian Industry and Commerce (Green Chillers), and ASEAN Renewable Energy Support Programme (ASEAN-RESP).  Moreover, the joint-implemented projects are also aiming at supporting Government of Indonesia in enabling conditions towards their RE target in Indonesia.

Fulfilling RE target in Indonesia can be achieved by providing a well-managed RE database information system.  One of GIZ Energy Program-implemented projects, ENDEV, has established consolidated RE Map to visualise their project locations in Indonesia.  As results, RE Map has supported EnDev to identify and monitor system performance on conducting inspections and technical recommendations on over 500 small power and solar power mini grids.

Besides enabling the monitoring system performance, RE database information system is also useful to support RE system planning and grid integration.  Thus, further database collection should be addressed on three parameters, such as: an actual renewable energy source per regions, existing power system both on-grid and off-grid applications, and electricity demand.  Those parameters should be integrated with the PLN electricity business plan (RUPTL), which leads to a fundamental of RE deployment strategies in Indonesia.
