Calculating Energy Access, Finance Mobilization, and Projected Emissions Reductions
A Case Study of Small-Scale Solar and Hydroelectric Clean Energy Activities in Indonesia
This case study examines small-scale solar and hydroelectric clean energy activities in Indonesia, and calculates results achievable from hydroelectric and wind projects, including potential greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions through 2030.
Provided in the case study is an overview of hydroelectric and wind results, information on how Indonesia will increase energy access while reducing GHG emissions, GHG estimation methodology and assumptions, and GHG calculations and results.
Indonesia is one of the world’s top emitters of GHGs. Approximately one-fifth of the population lacks access to electricity, despite Indonesia having high renewable energy and energy efficiency potential with traditionally low electricity rates. USAID Indonesia launched a five year, $15 million Indonesia Clean Energy Development (ICED) Project in March 2011 to increase access to energy services, stimulate economic growth, slow the growth of energy sector GHG emissions, and develop clean energy and transportation initiatives. ICED set a goal of avoiding 4 million metric tons of CO2- equivalent (tCO2e) annually from energy and transportation, installing 120 megawatts (MW) of clean energy generating capacity, and completing at least 20 small- to medium-sized renewable energy and energy efficiency projects.
