Gender Equality and Social Inclusion

  1. Sinung Triwulandari, CEO PT Haleyora Power​
  2. Sabrina Farah Salsabila, Lead of SRE Women
  3. Maryam Karimah, Solar Energy Engineer, Trama Tecno Ambiental, Spain

Moderator: Neni Marlina, Gender Focal Point Energy Transition Cluster GIZ, ENTRI


Detail Agenda

As the world recognises gender equality and social inclusion are fundamental in building a just and equitable society, the Indonesian – German Sustainable Cooperation ensures that both women and men have equal opportunities, rights, and access to resources and decision-making in all works of life in general and specifically in all energy transition projects implemented between the two nations.

Projects such as DeveloPPP and ISED II provide social inclusion by embracing diversity and providing equal opportunities for all individuals so that everyone has a fair chance to thrive and contribute to their fullest potential in achieving Indonesia’s renewable energy mix target is 23% by 2025. For example, ISED II together with Society of Renewable Energy (SRE) Women, developed the Gender Equity and Social Inclusion (GESI) Audit Tool aiming at transforming society into a more equitable society by addressing the root cause of inequality and exclusion. It is expected to be able to strengthen and change the social structure to be more supportive of equality and fairness starting from the individual level, society/community level, and structural level.

  2. Aswita Wulandari Saragih, Schneider Electric
  3. Charles Poeh, Kepala Kepala Balai Latihan Kerja (BLK) Provinsi Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT)

Moderator: Catoer Wibowo / Ruly Marianti


Detail Agenda

Indonesia has a renewable energy target of 23% by 2025, that will need all relevant stakeholders to work collaboratively. As Indonesia is gearing up to achieve this target, human resource becomes the fundamental element as they will be working in the frontline. Collaboration between the government, industry stakeholders, and training institutes is vital to align programs, requirements with industry needs and ensure a competent workforce.

Projects such as DeveloPPP and ISED II provide skills development programmes essential to increase the workforce skills development by bridging the gap between industry requirements and the skills taught in educational institutions.

Shaping Change through Energy Transition Narratives

  1. Gandabhaskara Saputra, CASE
  2. Coaction
  3. Youth representative

Moderated by: Abigail Limuria, Founder of @whatisupindonesia & Co-initator


Detail Agenda

Narrative is central to understanding and engaging in social change. A narrative could influence public opinion and leads perception towards certain goal. When it comes to energy transition, a narrative could be a difference between 100% renewable energy future vs fossil fuels future. ​

Energy transition narrative should be built around multiple narratives that cover all facets of the energy system from production to consumption, respect environmental boundaries, assure social justice, and fulfill human needs. However, narrative itself is not sufficient. In the next step, this narrative must be translated into concrete strategies, policies, and measures.​

This session will be opened with a monolog on the topic of energy transition narrative. After the monolog, moderator will invite all speakers to discuss about the current narrative of the energy transition, both globally and in Indonesia (also reflected on the discussion from Day-1 until Day-4 ISEW 2023) and about how the energy transition should look like moving forward. Additionally, for this session, a speaker that represent youth group will also voice what youth expect for Indonesia’s energy transition.​
