SEA Road Map Development and TA to ESP3

SEA Road Map Development and Technical Assistance to Environmental Support Programme, phase 3 - Indonesia

Description:

Background: Indonesia and Denmark are cooperating through an Environmental Support Programme, with the current third programme phase (ESP3) running from 2013 to 2017. Under Component 1 of ESP3, support is offered to improve the quality of Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEA) application at local governments in Indonesia. In close collaboration with Ministry of Home Affairs Directorate General of Regional Development (MOHA Bangda) and Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MOEF) Directorate General of Forest Planology and Environmental Governance, ESP3 is rolling out country wide support to quality SEA development and implementation at local level, specifically targeting regional development plan (RPJMD) and regional spatial plan (RTRWP/K). This support will contribute to generating "model SEAs" and building capacity to develop quality SEAs. Recommendations of these SEA are integrated into their related plans, thereby increasing environmental considerations in Indonesia's local level planning.

Following the merger of the Ministry of Environment with the Ministry of Forestry into the new Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), SEA is increasingly being recognized and given priority as an environmental safeguard and also as an important tool in the planning tool box.

As a result of newly-passed laws and regulations (that emphasize the requirement of SEA for plans, program and policies), and increasing awareness on SEA at national and local development activities, demands for SEA as an environmental safeguard tool at the planning stage is becoming critical. A set of government regulations on SEA and related issues have been developed and is awaiting the President’s approval. Once approved, these SEA regulations will apply for all sectors and guidelines will have to be prepared for national and local governments and possibly for the different sectors as well.

This has increased KLHK's role as promoter and counselor for the SEA development process to be more critical and eventually requires KLHK to prepare more strategic plans and approaches in ensuring effective, quality and sustainable SEA implementation.

This consultancy is aimed at supporting KLHK in developing a SEA Roadmap for the Directorate of Environmental Impact Prevention on Policies and Sectors in KLHK. The roadmap will also include a mid term SEA strategic plan for KLHK where the envisaged ESP3 SEA support is clearly delineated and embedded until December 2017. The consultant is also expected to provide technical assistance to ESP3 staff to align ongoing KLHK and ESP3 SEA activities with the SEA Roadmap.

Objective: The objective of the consultancy is provide technical assistance to the implementation of ESP3 Component 1, Outcomes 2 and 5 on support to SEA by developing a SEA roadmap for technical assistance to KLHK during the period October 2016 to January 2017 and a five-year SEA strategic plan for KLHK with the ESP3 support embedded.

The assignment will include conducting strategic meetings with KLHK key staff on SEA, liaising with related sectoral ministries and development partners, reviewing selected SEA reports in Indonesia, and assisting ESP3 in preparing SEA-related activities in supporting KLHK's strategic mandates on SEA.

Scope: The consultancy will require approximately 180 man-days over the period of 5 months. The team should consist of a combination of international and Indonesian experts.

Maximum budget: Maximum budget is 850,000 DKK.

Timing: The work shall be carried out from early September 2016 to end of January 2017


Deadline for applications: 17 July 2016, 16:00, Danish time

Support to the Integration of Renewable Energy - Indonesia

Support to the Integration of Renewable Energy

Description:

Indonesia currently has 6% renewable energy in the primary energy mix, but has policy target to increase this to 23% by year 2025. Additionally, Indonesia is striving to increase electrification, since currently only 84% of the population has access to electricity.

Since 2013, the Danish Embassy has through the Environmensal Support Programme (ESP3) supported the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR), Directorate General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation. Further, a Memorandum of Understanding between MEMR and the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate was signed in October 2015. The purpose of the MOU is to strengthen the Indonesian and Danish energy sector cooperation. Also, further strenghten the government to government cooperation via a new Strategic Sector Cooperation, SSC. The SSC has three main work streams: energy modelling, integration of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The SSC is a three year programme from 2016-2018 which involves a component on integration of renewable energy where Denmark is contributing with technical assistance, policy assistance and practical experiences. The support given to renewable energy integration particularly focus on strengthening the integration of wind power into the power system in Indonesia.

The first commercial wind farm projects are currently being developed in Indonesia. The projects are in the range of 20-70 MW and expected to be online within 1½-2 years. The development of the first wind projects in Indonesia is however a challeging process for the governmental institutions in Indonesia. In this regards, MEMR has to ensure that they establish policies and regulatory measures that will help accelerate wind power in Indonesia. Likewise, the state-owned electricity company, PLN, which operates the electricity network, evaluates and approves which incoming wind projects can be accepted for grid connection while still maintaining a secure and balanced electricity system.

The novelty of wind power integration in both MEMR and PLN has raised concerns over how to handle the development of wind power in Indonesia and how to ensure a smooth integration of wind power into the transmission/distribution network.

Denmark had 42% of the electricity demand covered by wind power in 2015 and despite a very high wind power penetration, Denmark has managed and secured a very high level of security of supply. Danish experiences and lessons learned with integrating wind power and other renewable energy sources into the power system can be shared and transferred to Indonesian stakeholders and counterparts.

The DEA's experience with policies and regulations for implementing renewable energy will be useful to support MEMR with tools to accelerate renewable energy, notably wind power in Indonesia.

Denmark has extended knowledge and experiences with using a combination of different tools, including interconnectors, flexibility measures, operational planning tools and electricity market mechanisms, to succesfully integrate fluctating renewable energy sources into the electricity grid. The cooperation with Indonesia on renewable energy integration will therefore further assist PLN with technical knowledge to address PLN's challenges and tasks with granting grid connection to wind power plants and operating the electricity grid with fluctuating renewable energy sources simultaneously.

Main tasks:
The consultant will assist DEA on writing a report on "Wind Power Integration Into The Power System". The report will include the following topics, where the contribution from the consultancy to the report will mainly be on topic D, E, F and G:

A. Historical development of wind power in Denmark

B. Power generation from wind turbines

C. Policy and regulatory measures for integrating wind power in Denmark

D. Operation and balancing the power system with wind power production in Denmark

E. Power system flexibility for integration of wind power in Denmark

F. Grid connection to wind power plants

G. Integration of photovoltaics

The consultant will also participate in work sessions in Indonesia on integrating fluctating renewable energy into the power system. The work sessions will be based on topics in the report "Wind Power Integration Into The Power System".

Finally, the consultant will partly participate in a study tour for the Indonesian counterpart(s) to Denmark where the consultant shall organise a 1 day workshop on Danish experiences with operating the electricity grid and integrating renewable energy into the power system including a site visit to a grid operation control room.

The consultancy services will require that the consultant can deliver and contribute to the chapters of the report on "Wind Power Integration Into The Power System" by June-August 2016 and provide comments to the overall report in late August 2016. Likewise, it is required that the consultant can participate in work sessions on wind power integration in Jakarta in September 2016 and host a 1-day workshop as part of a study tour to Denmark in November 2016.
Maximum budget: DKK 500,000

Deadline for applications: 30 June 2016, at 16:00, Danish time

The standard application form should be used. Applications not using the standard form may be rejected. Applications received after the deadline shall be rejected.

Technical Assistance for Local Governments in Temanggung, Magelang, and Sukoharjo Regencies on Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of Local Spatial Plans (RTRWK), Central Java Province - Indonesia

Description

Background:
Indonesia and Denmark are cooperating through an Environmental Support Programme, with the current third phase (ESP3) running from 2013 to 2017. ESP3 is coordinated under the Ministry of National Development Planning (Bappenas), with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MOEF) and Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR), as primary implementing partners. Under Component 1 of ESP3, support is offered to improve the quality of Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEA) among local governments in Indonesia.
The general approach of SEA support under ESP3 can be summarised as follows:
1) Support is provided to increase capacity in SEA management and promotion in relevant ministries.
2) Direct support to a number of SEAs of various types of policies, programmes and plans (PPP). The goal is to produce a number of model SEAs that can be distributed to other PPP owners for inspiration and as a learning tool. This opportunity will focus on support to three regencies in Central Java province (Temanggung, Magelang, and Sukoharjo) for SEAs of regional spatial plans (RTRWK).
3) Enrich/revise ministerial guidelines currently in use and elaborate a new set of national guidelines at a later stage.

Local governments are responsible for developing SEAs and they appoint an SEA taskforce made of government staff from related offices and/or local experts to carry out the work. ESP3 is seeking consultants to assist the SEA taskforce/local experts to provide technical assistance on specific tasks in the SEA process, to deliver high-quality reports with tangible impact on the resulting RTRWK. The consultant must liaise and work intensively with the SEA taskforce/local experts to determine the support needed. Detailed tasks will therefore be agreed between the consultant and the recipient. The assignment is expected to include support to the scoping process and development of ToRs for full SEA processes for three selected cities/regencies, to provide support to specific technical aspects of the impact and mitigation analyses for three selected cities/regencies, and assessment of the draft SEA report (QA/QC).

Objective:
The objectives of the consultancy are:
To assist the RTRWK taskforce/local consultants in developing SEAs of high quality that can serve as models for other PPP owners when elaborating SEA RTRWK. Special emphasis should be on providing technical assistance to the RTRWK taskforce, and local SEA experts hired by the PPP owners to establish the process and prepare the report, focusing on the important strategic issues; being concise, evidence-based, tangible, and based on good data and impact analyses. It should also ensure and provide documentary evidence that results are used actively in the planning process.

Output:
Output 1: High quality SEA reports of RTRWK in the three regencies.
Output 2: A report documenting the support process, lessons-learned, and integration of SEA results into the final PPP document.

Scope:
The assignment will require a maximum of 4.4 man-months spread over 6 months. The team shall consist of a team leader with international experience in SEA, a national SEA expert with a background of the Indonesian spatial planning system, and a spatial planning/GIS expert. The working language will be English but the consultant should be able to provide Indonesian language skills within the team.

Timing:
The work is expected to be carried out between 11 July and 31 December 2016.

Modelling Expert to Support the Indonesian Energy Modelling System - Jakarta

Description:

Indonesia currently has 6% renewable energy in the primary energy mix, but has a policy target to increase this to 23% by year 2025. Additionally, Indonesia is striding to increase electrification, since currently only 84% of the population have access to electricity.

Since 2013, the Danish Embassy has through the Environmental Support Programme 3 (ESP3) supported the Directorate General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) in i.a. promoting the use of renewable energy. Further, a Memorandum of Understanding between Indonesia and Denmark was signed in October 2015 with the purpose of strengthening the Indonesian and Danish energy sector cooperation - not least through a new Strategic Sector Cooperation, SSC. The SSC has three main work streams energy modelling, integration of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The SSC is a three year programme from 2016-2018, which involves a component on energy modelling and energy planning where Denmark is contributing with technical assistance, policy assistance and practical experiences. On the energy modelling this include support to strengthen the energy planning methodologies, methods, models and approach to data.

The National Energy Council (NEC) is tasked with the preparation of an Annual Energy Outlook, which shall provide direction for government and stakeholders in the Indonesian Energy System. The NEC already has both models and modelling capability and uses the LEAP model – a well-established planning tool, which can provide a comprehensive overarching view of the current and future energy system, and which can support scenario analyses hereof. In a future with increasing penetration of variable renewables, issues regarding power system balancing and renewable power integration must be considered as a part of the energy planning. This is a blind spot for many models such as LEAP. The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) through the SSC will assist NEC in establishing a modelling capacity and support such analyses with increasing renewable penetration. This calls for the introduction of fine grained models of the power system.
The DEA's experience with focus on energy data and with a combined use of planning tools will be useful for charting the course of Indonesia's energy system transformation.
One of the proposed improvements to the energy modelling in Indonesia will be the introduction of Balmorel. Balmorel is a power sector model with a flexibility that allows it to be used both for long-term optimal capacity expansion modelling, as well as short-term detailed hourly unit commitment and economic dispatch. It can and has been used in both regulated and restructured liberalized power markets. A core strength is a solid representation of all key technologies in the power system, including generation, consumption, storage, transmission and the challenges and opportunities of introducing fluctuating renewables has frequently been addressed by the model.

Denmark has extended knowledge about the combined use of planning tools and the asssessment of energy data. The assessment will therefore further assist the Indonesian modelling team in an evaluation of the current modelling system and assist also Indonesia's energy data office review the current energy data used in the models.

Main task:
The consultant will assist DEA during a 5 day inception workshop on modelling as well as take active part in the formulation and implementation of the needed work and processes for implementing new modelling tools in Indonesia and strengthen the current energy modelling system. This involves the design of more detailed power systems modelling, consolidating energy data as well as the introduction of a light version of Balmorel. The output will be
A strengthened Indonesian Energy outlook and
A draft scenario analysis for the Indonesian renewable energy system up to 2050.
The consultancy services will require that the consultant is participating in the planning and execution of the modelling workshop in Jakarta from the 24-31 May and that the consultant furthermore will be present in Jakarta on a regularly basis from the 1 August 2016 to the 31 of December 2016.
Maximum budget: DKK 1,000,000
