With its abundance of natural resources, Indonesia has been implementing renewable energy systems since the early 1990s. The country’s electrification ratio increased from 28 per cent in 1990 to more than 99 per cent in 2020. Providing energy access also creates a great deal of expertise in various aspects of decentralised renewable energy in different parts of Indonesia, be it within the private-sector, academics, government systems or within grassroot communities. Having advanced a middle-income country to the host of G20, Indonesia wants to bring expertise in decentralised renewable energy to the international stage with the aim of promoting the Global Goals together with countries in the Global South.


Indonesia is established as an actor in international cooperation on the topic of decentralised renewable energy systems.


The project activities include:

  • gathering knowledge and practices from various actors experienced in implementing decentralised renewable energy mini grids within triangular cooperation modality. In this, Indonesia will be a pivotal partner and Germany the facilitating partner. The countries from the global south will benefit from the activities. The implementation will be in-line and coordinated with the Indonesian system on triangular cooperation, i.e., National Coordination Team for Indonesia South-South Cooperation.
  • pursuing innovative digital approaches to ensure that exchanges will still be engaging and impactful beyond in-person activities.
  • Raising awareness about the gender gap in decentralised renewable energy and its impacts in order to provide a dedicated platform and exchange activities for female professionals of all participating countries.
