Focus Group Discussion on Renewable Energy in Indonesia

July 31, 2018

- Jakarta

On July 31, 2018, 22 participants from the private sector renewable energy space, including members of chambers of commerce (e.g., KADIN), took part in a focus group discussion held at the Financial Club in Jakarta.

Greg Elms, TPSA project Field Director, kicked off the focus group discussion by setting out the intentions of engagement in Indonesia by the Canadian government. Dr. J. Scott Younger, President Commissioner of PT Glendale Partners, followed with a presentation outlining the objectives of the study, the potential of the renewable market in Indonesia (with a specific focus on four areas: solar, biomass, waste to energy, and ocean tidal energy), as well as the challenges faced by investors. The main aim of the discussion was to seek avenues for improving the regulatory environment for renewable energy in the short-term.
