PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The project aims to institutionalise knowledge on off-grid electrification using renewable energy in Indonesia.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Anchor institutions are training providers on national and regional levels. They ensure that the skills needed for installing, inspecting, operating, maintaining and repairing RE powered micro grids are kept, improved and transferred to technicians active in the region. Simultaneously, ELREN supports the private sector in establishing functioning service and repairing structures that comply with international quality standards in the four pilot regions. To ensure that results match the actual needs in Indonesia’s off-grid electrification sector, the project commences by identifying gaps throughout the process chain of rural electrification. Activities are then designed to fill these gaps, starting from site selection, planning, evaluation, selection, procurement and construction through to operations and service. Every step of the process chain is analysed, with a clear goal of having the process synchronised, standardised, and sustainable. The overall strategy of ELREN is comprised of: Establishing and integrating national and international standards on RE-based off-grid electrification. Establishing a synchronised database shared through an online platform by relevant stakeholders. Creating a coordination platform between relevant stakeholders and ministries in the off-grid electrification sector. Evaluating existing off-grid systems and establishing a streamlined monitoring & evaluation system. Supporting the private sector in establishing a functioning service and maintenance structures in four pilot provinces. Implementing capacity development measures for key training institutions and developing schemes for technicians and private sector in the off-grid sector to be trained locally. Including social-gender and environmental aspects in the whole process chain of off-grid electrification.
