Consultancy: Energy Planning and Renewable Energy Expert(s) (Indonesia)

The 100% Renewables Cities and Regions Roadmap (100% RE) is an international project implemented by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability with support from the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

ICLEI Southeast Asia through its Indonesia Office has committed to assisting the Government of West Nusa Tenggara (WNT) Province, Mataram City, and Sumbawa Regency within this project’s framework in implementing the 100% RE Project. The project will foster multilevel governance, and put collaboration at the heart of the sustainable energy transition in the region. This approach will allow cities and regions to not only unlock one of the largest potential solutions for GHG emission reduction, but also drive sustainable growth and local job creation, as well as various social benefits.

The project requires expertise to develop a roadmap document for the 100% renewable energy transition in West Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia. The expert must have experience in developing renewable energy roadmaps. The work includes 1) preparatory and scoping work; 2) develop WNT 100% RE roadmap (local strategies) including implementation mechanisms for local strategies; 3) conduct multi-stakeholder consultations to solicit inputs on the roadmap; 4) WNT 100% RE roadmap validation and final report writing in Bahasa and English; 5) develop solution packages related to renewable energy.

SCOPE OF WORK

The expert is expected to assist the development of 100% RE Roadmap for West Nusa Tenggara Province. The expert can work remotely without needing to be stationed at ICLEI Indonesia office (Yayasan ICLEI Indonesia) located in DKI Jakarta, Indonesia, but physical presence during fieldworks and if possible, some of the consultations, in the project cities/regions shall be planned.” She/he shall work closely with the relevant Project Officer during the roadmap development process. The following activities will need to be undertaken in order to help meet the objectives of the project:

Specific Duties and Responsibilities

1. Preparatory and scoping work

  • Formulate a Work Plan for the Development of 100% RE Roadmap
  • Collect, identify, and analyze important points from relevant studies/reports such as WNT energy modelling results and WNT initial report that have been prepared by ICLEI
  • Perform gap identification and analysis (data, capacity, policy) related to roadmap development
  • Prepare and submit an inception report

2. Drafting of the WNT 100% RE Roadmap 

  • Draft WNT 100% RE Roadmap based on the template provided by ICLEI (to be used as the baseline), WNT energy modelling results, GIS based RE resource analysis and other reports. The roadmap shall include:
    • Local strategies to achieve the 2050 target in all sectors (electricity, transport and heating/cooling) and subsequent sub-sectors, based on a transition period with intermediate milestones (proposed:  transition period: 2023-2030, 2030-2040 and 2040-2050. Intermediate milestone 2025, 2030, 2035, 2040, and 2050 (final target year)
    • Potential implementation mechanisms for renewable energy interventions in all sectors and subsequent sub-sectors in WNT
    • Funding schemes and financing mechanism to achieve the target the 100%RE target at the latest by 2050.
    • Supporting policy recommendations and conclusion related to the target and action points
  • Facilitate consultation and validation of the draft document with WNT 100% RE project implementation team (PIT)

3. Conduct multi-stakeholder consultations to solicit inputs on the roadmap

  • Design and conduct multi-stakeholder consultations that considers stratification and adheres to the principles of empowerment, equality, and inclusiveness
  • Prepare public consultations materials
  • Collaborate with the WNT 100% RE team to ensure the involvement and cooperation from the stakeholders
  • Facilitate consultation meetings with the National Advisory Group (NAG)/national focal point (MEMR), key stakeholders (BAPPENAS, MOEF), and other relevant stakeholders for the roadmap development
  • Revise the draft Roadmap based on the results of the consultation and validation processes. Submit two versions of draft Roadmap in Bahasa and English to ICLEI SEAS/IO.

4. Finalization and soliciting approval of the Draft WNT 100% RE roadmap 

  • Facilitate consultations and solicit approval of the WNT Provincial government for the adoption of the Roadmap for the 100% RE in the region
  • Revise and finalize the draft Roadmap based on the results of the consultation process.
  • Submit the Bahasa and English copy of the final Roadmap to ICLEI SEAS/IO.

5. Develop 5 solutions for the solutions packages related to renewable energy

  • Conduct in-depth research on 5 topics:
    • RE based Electric Vehicles (EV) charging stations,
    • Local Strategies for Green Hydrogen,
    • Public Private Partnership (PPP) for Renewable Energy projects by Local Governments,
    • Renewable Energy Based Minigrid, and
    • Solar Water Pumping.
  • Draft the solutions packages using the template prepared by ICLEI
