When: 2009

Where: Indonesia

What: Strengthening Institutional Capacities

In collaboration with the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the Australian University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the STTNAS Jogjakarta College in Indonesia, we organised a workshop to exchange field experience and lessons learned from renewable energy projects implemented in Indonesia over the past decade.

 

The workshop, which took place in Jakarta, Indonesia, from January 19-20, 2009, gathered more than 100 participants including international experts, representatives of NGOs, local and federal governments, academic institutions and the donor community, as well as representatives from the renewable energy industry of Indonesia.

 

Discussions during the workshop centered on looking at what worked well, what went wrong and what still needed to be done, considering the institutional, financial, technological, social and ecological dimensions of sustainability, in renewable energy and sustainable project development in Indonesia. Project experience in Indonesia and in other developing countries was presented, providing rich information on hands-on field experience and reviews on renewable energy developments and policy trends. Such rich information was aimed to help participants refine and update their project design and implementation guidelines to be more effective and sustainable.
