Job Description

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis. GIZ has been working in Indonesia since 1975 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The bilateral project “1,000 Islands – Renewable Energy for Electrification Programme Phase 2” (REEP2) has been commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in July 2020 and will be implemented between January 2021 and December 2023. The project builds upon the ongoing project REEP, which will phase out on 31st December 2020.

REEP2’s aims to support Indonesia to improve the institutional, regulatory and technical conditions for achieving the policy target of 23% of renewable energy in the energy mix in 2025 at the national and regional level.” This objective is to be achieved through three areas of intervention, clustered in three outputs:

  • Output 1 aims to improve the regulatory framework for promoting decentralized RE by means of adapted or new regulations.
  • Output 2 pursues the goal of introducing decentralized RE technologies in PLN-internal planning processes as alternatives to conventional power generation technologies.
  • Output 3 aims to promote the expansion of RE by introducing the previously unused concept of load shifting, especially in small island grids, through private sector participation

REEP2 is implemented jointly with the political partner, the Directorate General for New and Renewable Energies and Energy Conservation (Direktorat Jenderal Energi Baru Terbarukan dan Konservasi Energi, DJ EBTKE) under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral, KESDM). It further works closely with KESDM’s Directorate General for Electricity (Direktorat Jenderal Ketenagalistrikan, DJ Gatrik) as well as the state-owned utility PLN, in particular on Output 2. Within Output 3, the project will work with the private sector to develop and apply innovative RE technology and business models.

REEP2 will be implemented by GIZ with a team consisting of several Output advisors, a Project Lead, and the Senior Liaison Officer of the Energy Programme. REEP2 will be embedded in the larger GIZ Energy Programme, and work in synergy with other existing energy projects, in particular the “Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy for Southeast Asia Programme” (CASE) and the project “Strategic Exploration of Economic Mitigation Potentials through Renewables” (ExploRE).
