DiBiCoo Webinar: "Contributing to The Biogas Mrket in Indonesia: Best Practices in The Country and Partnering with European Biogas Industry"

One of the current programs of the Indonesia’s Government is to increase the portion of Renewable Energy (RE) from 12.4% in the 2018 energy mix to 23.0% in 2025 (RUPTL 2018-2027, 2018). The portion of renewable energy is projected to increase in order to achieve the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 26% in 2020. One of the main programs of the government in increasing the energy mix and reducing greenhouse emissions is through the application of bioenergy. In RUPTL 2018-2027, bioenergy is expected to contribute 9.7% or 23 MTOE (Metric Ton Oil Equivalent) energy, consisting of 489.8 m3 of biogas - as stated in Government Regulation No.79 of 2014 concerning National Energy Policy. One type of ET that has potential in Indonesia is bioenergy, which is sourced from agricultural and plantation organic waste, especially oil palm. However, until now there are only around 1.8 GW of PLTBg, consisting of 213.6 MW on-grid and 1,643.9 MW off-grid while specific to POME is only around 22.8 MW on-grid and 9 MW off-grid (ESDM, 2018).

The low application of bioenergy installations, especially large scale (1 MW) due to the oil palm industry, requires large investments and technological compatibility to produce bioenergy from liquid waste (POME). Thus, the Resilience Development Initiative (RDI) as a Global Think-Tank, together with GIZ Munich and 11 international organizations spread across eight countries in the European Union, Africa, and South America, work together to implement the program "Digital Biogas Global Cooperation (DiBiCoo)".

The DiBiCoo program was previously planned in the form of a workshop. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RDI then conducted a virtual discussion with biogas industry actors, focusing on the processing of palm oil waste. The webinar covered DiBiCoo's contribution to the improvement of the biogas industry in Indonesia. By holding this webinar, we hope that the stakeholders will be able to share knowledge, lessons, and practices in the expansion of the biogas market in Indonesia.


  • Promote and enhance stakeholder understanding of national policies related to bioenergy development.
  • Open up the opportunities for discussion related to law and regulations, business and financial aspects, and detailed implementation of bioenergy technology.
  • Describe information related to information systems that will be implemented through the DiBiCoo program; gathering input on information systems that can be used by stakeholders in Indonesia.


  • Through this webinar, the DiBiCoo consortium hopes that input will emerge for technical recommendations, business models and financing models related to bioenergy development in Indonesia.
  • Open up opportunities for webinar participants to get involved in the DiBiCoo program series to the demo case stage.
