Energy programme review in Indonesia
The Finnish Foreign Ministry announces a tender for the mid-term review of the Energy and Environment Partnership (EEP) Programme in Indonesia. The main purpose of the review is to provide input for the rest of the period (2011-2014), and a possible continuation of the programme.
The EEP concept was initiated by Finland in Central America in 2002, and is now being implemented in four other geographic regions: Southern and Eastern Africa, the Mekong region, Indonesia and the Andean region.
Indoensia has just 55 per cent electrification rates in rural areas and high dependence on fossil fuels. Yet it is a country with high solar and geothermal potential.
The programme aims to support technological innovation and pilot projects in the field of renewable energy as a way of increasing access to energy, mitigating climate change and protecting the environment.
