The SEA-ETP is a multi-stakeholder platform that aims to accelerate energy transition in Southeast Asia. The SEA-ETP Rountable is a networking and peer-to-peer capacity building program led by The Australian National University (ANU) and the Australia-Mekong Partnership for Environmental Resources & Energy Systems (AMPERES) , that aims to provide an opportunity for the region’s energy transition stakeholders – in particular, mid-career policy makers from Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines and regional level bodies – to engage in an intensive roundtable series on the energy transition

As the local partner (in Indonesia), LPEM FEB UI Lead the development of Indonesia National Baseline Report on Power Sector and in charge as the local language focal point in assisting delivery of SEA-ETP Roundtables Series: Executive Trainings, Deep Dive Dialogues, and National Policy Dialogues. The National Baseline Report contains overview of the evolution of Indonesia Power Sector, description of the Indonesia’s power sector characteristics and governance landscape, and also contains of analysis of barriers, risks, and opportunities for Indonesia’s energy transition. The report highlights that some issues in financing and renewable investment, power sector’s governance and regulation, and some technical issues regarding grid capacity, stability, and connectivity, are some of key strategic issues on Indonesia’s energy transition. Then, together with with Indonesia Research Institute for Decarbonization (IRID) we also developed policy note that provide insights from Deep Dive Dialogues, which addressed the aforementioned key strategic issues and the proposed recommendations, including seek to provide sufficient finance and infrastructure for a resilient, reliable and affordable grid.
Greenpeace IndonesiaPolicy Paper: Policy Recommendations for Indonesia's energy transition to be in line with the 1.5ºC Scenario
This research project is motivated by Indonesia's commitment to participate in efforts to address climate change, as indicated in various planning documents. In the energy sector, Indonesia is committed to achieving a target of 23% for the new and renewable energy (NRE) mix by 2025 and 28% by 2038 (RUKN). However, in practice, Indonesia is still far from the stated targets. As of 2022, the NRE mix in the national energy sector only reached 14.1% (Handbook of Energy and Economic Statistics Indonesia). The high dependence on coal, both economically and due to political barriers, is one of the reasons Indonesia is trapped in a coal lock-in situation that hinders the energy transition in the country.
