The GIZ-implemented Energy Programme Indonesia/ASEAN supports the Indonesian Government in a partner-based approach in achieving its targets for a sustainable energy transition. These include realizing 23% renewable energy in the power mix by 2025 and 34% by 2030, achieving Net Zero Emissions by 2060 and mainstreaming low-carbon technologies as part of an overall economic transformation.
As one of the measures under the Energy Programme, the “Solar Cold Chains for a Green Economy in Indonesia” (SOCOOL) Project shall create suitable technological and market framework conditions to enable a long-term reduction of CO2 emissions in Indonesia’s cooling sector. An industry-based, national approach in partnership with Directorate General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (EBTKE) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) shall ensure contributions to Indonesia’s Vision 2045 and wider green economic transformation. Clear contributions towards Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contributions and renewable energy targets shall be made while achieving socio-economic improvements in related sectors of the economy with high demands for cold chain expansion and preservation of goods.
The Project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with an overall duration of four years (01/2023-12/2026) and has the general objective: ”Solar cold chains are rolled out in key sectors of the economy as a contribution to climate-friendly green transformation”. Its main outputs are:
• Government advice and national planning: Instruments for quantitative and qualitative monitoring support the use of solar technologies in cold chains for national planning processes.
• Alliances and market development: Technology partnerships have developed adapted technical solutions for solar cold chains.
• Demonstration: Pilot applications with state actors and the private sector have shown technologically and economically viable examples for the dissemination of solar cold chains.
The Project closely interacts with other initiatives under the Energy Programme Indonesia/ASEAN.
