- Creation of staged pathways towards increasing productivity through the appropriately designed and managed provision of reliable and secure energy
Indonesia, with its vast resources for sustainable energy generation, faces challenges of providing secure and equal access to energy (not only electricity) across the remote and rural islands. Addressing this challenge is therefore essential for the socio-economic development of rural areas. To coincide with the World Energy Day, Robert Gordon University (RGU) Aberdeen and Universitas Nasional (UNAS), Jakarta supported by Newton Fund and British Council, held “WORKSHOP ON DECENTRALISED SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR WIDER INDONESIA – TOWARDS ENERGY SECURITY AND INDEPENDENCE”
The workshop took place in Yogyakarta, on Tuesday to Thursday, 20 – 22 October 2015. The workshop was led by International experts and science practitioners, which include senior researchers/academics, government officials and business from UK and Indonesia.
The event was organised by:
- CUSP; Alan Owen and Nia Garniati,
- CSERM; JitoSugardjito, Inez Saptenno, Agung Iswadi, Radisti Praptiwi, Himawan Atep, Nyoman Elly and Taufik Mulyana
