Renewable Energy and Emission Reduction (REER)
focuses on the development and issues of renewable energy, along with climate change mitigation (greenhouse gas emission reduction). Alternative energy resources like biogas, biofuel, biomass, wind and solar energy are at the heart of our research. The studies include how renewable energy can be implemented in remote or urban areas, and observations of an institutional capacity on strengthening sustainability policies. The cluster also studies emission reduction efforts in Indonesia and its impacts on the global climate. Research such as carbon stock, carbon sequestration is also part of this cluster.
REER team is actively involved in international renewable projects, among others in Minigrid Sumba (Indonesia), GCRF CRYSUM HYRES, led by University of Leeds (2018-2021), funded by EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) (UK AID) and biogas projects, Digital Global Biogas Cooperation (DiBiCoo), in 5 countries (Indonesia, Ghana, South Africa, Argentina, and Ethiopia) led by GIZ Germany (2019-2022) funded by European Union (Horizon 2020). We also conduct research of local government capacity in adopting renewable energy to support energy security. In addition to that we also study palm oil potential as bioenergy and its implication for Indonesia. This cluster is chaired by Dr. Yudha Prambudia.
