Program Overview
WRI Indonesia's energy program works to advance reliable, clean energy and reduce carbon emissions, while balancing the need for economic advancement. WRI Indonesia believe that sustainable development highlights the need for integrated approaches to finding solutions that are aligned with the challenge of achieving economic, social and environmental goals that are often interlinked. Therefore, the energy program aims to work across disciplines with the cities team, climate team and the ocean to combine low carbon technology systems, quantitative models, and other policy-making decision tools to achieve and support key national initiatives in Indonesia such as the acceleration of the achievement of 23% renewable energy targets and Indonesia net zero ambition.

One of our flagship initiatives is the Clean Energy Investment Accelerator (CEIA) which is co-led by Allotrope Partners, the World Resources Institute, and the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory. CEIA is an innovative public-private partnership initiative that advances policy and financing frameworks to meet the clean energy needs of commercial and industrial energy consumers. We believe that as the largest energy consumer group, the commercial and industrial sector could use their buying power to drive energy transition through policy advocacy, business model and technology adoption. The CEIA focuses on key emerging markets across the globe including Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Colombia, and Mexico. CEIA Indonesia established a Working Group, consisting of energy large buyers from industrial and commercial sectors, and has been holding a series of dialogues to identify and refine areas for public-private collaboration and advance optimal solutions for corporate procurement of renewable energy.
