Energy Demand Modeling Training for Indonesia’s Energy Conservation Policy Makers

Energy Demand Modeling Training for Indonesia’s Energy Conservation Policy Makers
17 – 18 April 2017

RIO 2512
Monitoring and estimating the impact of energy conservation policies would not be effectively done without capacity building of the relevant stakeholders in this area. Therefore, Environmental Support Program Phase 3 (ESP3) organises a training for 20 selected Directorate General of New Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (EBTKE) policy makers. The theme of the training was "Plan for energy utilization in the industrial, transportation, household, and commercial building towards support to monitoring and estimation of energy conservation policies impact".

RIO 2823Prior to the training, a model of energy demand as part of “Support to Monitoring and Estimation of Energy Conservation Policies Impact” has been finalised with several improvements in accordance to suggestions of a series of FGD. The purpose of the training is not only to familiarise EBTKE with LEAP software, but also to introduce and modify the model in order to easily adapt for constant changing of energy demand in Indonesia. An introduction to system dynamic is also held with purpose to identify multi-sectoral framework of thinking to policy makers.

On Day 1, the event was opened by Mr. Mustofa Said from EBTKE and proceed to the presentation from the consultant explaining the background of project, method, and introduced LEAP energy modeling. Then, the consultant elaborated more on how the data of energy demand was collected and managed. After that, the training was continued by presentations of introducing to policy makers the energy demand in household and industrial sectors. For the rest of the session, trainers gave a hands-on learning experiences on how to operate LEAP and answering all the questions with interactive and friendly environment.

On Day 2, the event continued to hands-on learning on building and transportation sectors. Adding to the modeling, Mr. Erick Hutrindo from EBTKE gave a lecture on introduction to system dynamic, a framework of thinking for policy makers to consider other related factors in energy modeling and how to put it in overall policy design. On the event, all participants could ask and discuss every question in an interactive way. Overall, the learning experience was helpful for policy makers to understand and address the complexity of energy demand in Indonesia.
