Description

Sumba island represents as a prominent example of a region with large potential of renewable energy sources for electricity generation through RE (Renewable Energy). According to reports from Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR), Sumba has electrification rate of 50.9% of which 20.9% is fulfilled through RE generation (MEMR, 2019). Therefore, active participation from various stakeholders in aiming to increase the island’s electrification ratio to 95% by 2025 was initiated through collaborative project namely Sumba Iconic Island (Sumba Iconic Island Development Team, 2012). The project’s development encapsulates a variety of factors that would promote and cultivate the renewable energy growth within Sumba island – from legal framework and economic considerations to social improvement , – while simultaneously aiming to meet energy needs and targets.

Aligning with the Sumba Iconic Island project, Resilience Development Initiative (RDI) from Indonesia, Leeds University from the United Kingdom, CREEC from Uganda, and Dar Es Salam University from Tanzania collaborated on research project titled Creating Resilient Sustainable Microgrids through Hybrid Renewable Energy System (CRESUM-HYRES). The purpose of this research is to develop and validate the design of holistic microgrids with hybrid systems intended for rural areas in developing countries. Therefore, this research project chose Sumba as a role model in making NRE technology as well as looking at the development of renewable energy and energy conservation (NREEC) in Sumba, especially in terms of: (i) social-demographic findings, (ii) economic implications by considering communities’ willingness to pay, (iii) biofuel as potential for NRE, and (iv) stakeholder analysis.

The national workshop 2019 with the theme of Clean and Affordable Renewable Energy for Sustainable Rural and Remote Areas through Microgrids serves as a platform to gather related stakeholders along with local, national, and international academicians. Therefore, stakeholders involved directly in improving and bolstering the sustainable renewable energy initiative in Sumba island, such as Hivos, Bappeda and local communities represented by respective head of villages and local champions, will also be participating in this workshop to testify on their experience with renewable energy in Sumba island itself. In addition, central government stakeholders e.g. alike ESDM and Bappenas will also be present to disseminate their data on implementing renewable energy implementation in Indonesia, especially in remote and rural areas including alike Sumba Island.

Through this workshop, aAll of the participants from all levels will be involved in direct discussions and giving recommendations to bolster renewable energy technology development in rural and remote areas, which in this case is Sumba Island in East Nusa Tenggara. In addition, this workshop also represents as prominent opportunity for South-to-South cooperation (Indonesia, Tanzania and Uganda) between developing countries in looking for placing renewable energy at the forefront of their respective electrification efforts and development. Ultimately, through international attendance and collaboration, this workshop is expected to contribute to global issues, especially those in regards of climate change and clean energy transition in sustaining growing global population. Therefore, the recommendations produced throughout the workshop will align with the outputs of our Creating Resilient Sustainable Microgrids through Hybrid Renewable Energy System (CRESUM-HYRES) research project.

Objectives

  • Disseminating information and research outputs on social-demographical asset, communities' willingness to pay, biofuel as renewable energy, and stakeholder analysis aspects.
  • Facilitating information exchange and discussions on the renewable energy in the context of technology, social-economy, and policies.
  • Facilitating the aspirations and inputs from key stakeholders, practitioners, private actors, academicians, and communities to produce a clear policy orientation and bolster the development and implementation of renewable energy.
