The DANIDA Environmental Support Programme Phase 3 (ESP3) supports Directorate General of New Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (DG NREEC), Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) on energy conservation study.

It is entitled Support to Monitoring and Estimation of Energy Conservation Policies Impact, which has appointed Indonesian Institute for Energy Economics (IIEE) as the consultant for this assignment. The purpose of this study is to monitor as well as estimate the energy conservation policies impact in an attempt to achieve target of National Energy Policy in terms of 17% reduction of national energy consumption by 2025.

The modeling study is concentrated on several sectors, such as household, building, industry, and transportation. The view of relevant stakeholders in each sector is necessary to obtain in Focus Group Discussion (FGD) in order to know the impact of energy conservation policies. The study focuses on the application of green building standard in building sector as well as Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) implementation for industrial equipments (boiler, chiller, and electric motor) towards reduction of energy consumption.

Thus, a FGD entitled “Energy Utilization Planning in Building and Industrial Sectors towards Monitoring and Estimation of Energy Policies Impact” was held in Bogor on 28 February 2017. It was funded by ESP3 and conducted in two sessions, morning for building and afternoon for industrial sector. FGD for building sector was attended by 21 participants consists of Directorate of Energy Conservation, governmental institutions (Ministry of Public Works and Housing, Ministry of Home Affairs, Center Statistics Agency), private companies (PT Energy Management Indonesia) and associations (Green Building Council Indonesia/GBCI, Building Engineers Associaton/BEA Indonesia). Meanwhile, FGD for industrial sector was attended by 15 participants in industrial sector that consist of Directorate of Energy Conservation, governmental institutions (Center for Data and Information on Energy and Mineral Resources, Ministry of Industry), private companies (PT Pupuk Kujang Cikampek, PT Semen Indonesia, PT Petrokimia Gresik, PT Krakatau Steel, PT Energy Management Indonesia), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), associations (Asosiasi Praktisi Pendingin dan Tata Udara Indonesia/APITU, Asosiasi Pulp dan Kertas Indonesia/APKI), and think tank institution (Pusat Kebijakan Keenergian ITB).

During the discussion, the consultant presented the draft of modelling results for both sectors, which was moderated by Mrs. Andriah Feby Misna from Directorate of Energy Conservation. Overall, the discussion ran smoothly and interactively, with participants had given their constructive insights on overcoming unavailability of data and modeling structure.
