Indonesia Sustainable Energy Week 2023

United Towards A Decarbonised Energy System

Day 1

A Collaborative Approach for Indonesia’s Energy Transition

On the first day, ISEW convenes policymakers, industry leaders, and energy experts in the efforts to strategize a cohesive plan for a sustainable energy future. By integrating energy transition planning, progressive fiscal policies, and innovations enabled by private sector investments, the first day aims to foster a collaborative approach towards Indonesia’s greener energy landscape.

Detail Agenda

The session aims to delve into the role of Indonesia’s Energy Transition pathway through planning documents, such as the National Long-term Development Plan (RPJP), Rencana Umum Energi Nasional (RUEN), Rencana Umum Kelistrikan Nasional (RUKN), Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP), alongside other relevant documents, targets, and objectives in shaping the country toward net-zero emissions by 2060. Recognizing the imperative to mitigate climate change, this session underscores the importance of connecting all these plannings documents, with RPJP as the legalized umbrella that sets the strategic direction of Indonesia’s development from 2025 to 2045. By exploring how the RPJP can consolidate the various energy transition targets and efforts, the discussion aspires to enhance cross-ministry collaboration, improve international cooperation, and promote informed public participation. This session serves as a platform to reflect on the strengths of current arragement, challenges, and potential, envisioning an effective, sustainable, and inclusive energy future for Indonesia.​

  3. Suahasil Nazara/Masyita Crystallin, The Ministry of Finance (MoF)

Moderated by: Budi Kuncoro, Principal Advisor GIZ DRM 2.0


Detail Agenda

The Government of Indonesia (GoI) commits to reduce carbon emissions and to increase the portion of renewable energy to achieve the target of the renewable energy mix in the electricity sector. Indonesia has transformed the electricity sector by accelerating the termination of coal-fired power plants and the provision of renewable energy power plants. To achieve the Net Zero Emission (NZE) target in 2060, the GoI has developed a roadmap towards a clean energy and low-carbon economy. The process of implementing the roadmap requires fiscal support through the provision of a fiscal and financing framework in the energy transition. As part of the roadmap towards a clean energy and low-carbon economy, the Minister of Finance has developed regulation on fiscal support for energy transition which aims to create a coordinated and integrated funding and financing framework to support the acceleration of the energy transition in the electricity sector and increase the proportion of renewable energy power plants. The GoI will also implement a carbon trading for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

In this workshop, key actors from Indonesian Government officials and the Indonesian Environment Fund (Badan Pengelola Dana Lingkungan Hidup, BPDLH) will present the fiscal framework in supporting green economy development in Indonesia, the existing climate finance mechanism in Indonesia, and the role of BPDLH in carbon trading in Indonesia.

14.15 – 15.45

Moderator: Dr. Andhika Prastawa


Detail Agenda

Green supply chain has been paid extensive attention in the past years due to the increasing pressure of both pollution and resource consumption reduction. In parallel, developments in partnerships and regulation over the past year indicate that battery electric vehicle manufacturers will have to push to further decarbonize their supply chains, such as JETP, EU’s Battery Regulation and carbon border adjustment mechanisms (CBAM) and the US’s Inflation Reduction Act. 

From the German side, there is a growing demand for raw minerals and battery suppliers who incorporate elements of sustainability in their production, to foster the decarbonization of transport sector. From the Indonesian perspective, capitalizing its mineral resources and developing upstream and downstream the supply chains would mean integrating sustainability principles and also aims to reduce emissions by creating a domestic EV market. 

In light of this, a “Deep Dive: Greening the Battery Supply Chains in Indonesia” dialogue will be held at the Indonesia Sustainable Energy Week (ISEW). This dialogue aims to address the challenges as well as identifies opportunities to enhance public-private sector cooperation, in particular in establishing a green supply chain for renewable energy technology and components manufacturing. 

Deep Dive addresses questions of sustainability, value added, as well as Indonesia’s readiness to compete in the global market for battery, especially with the new local content regulation. It will conclude with strategic recommendations of where accounting for the trade-offs between profits and environmental impacts will be most needed, and how sustainability can be achieved.
