Indonesia-ECN Capacity building for energy policy formulation and implementation of sustainable energy projects
A key component of the political and economic reforms that are currently being implemented in Indonesia is the devolution of responsibilities for regional development, including the energy sector development. This means moving responsibilities from national government to provincial and district level. To enable regional governments to duly execute their new responsibilities, new institutions need to be created and relevant capacity for formulating regional energy policy needs to be built. The CASINDO project aims to establish a self-sustaining structure both at the national and regional level to build and strengthen human capacity to enable the provinces of North Sumatra, Yogyakarta, Central Java, West Nusa Tenggara and Papua to formulate sound policies for renewable energy and energy efficiency and to develop and implement sustainable energy projects.
