WRI Indonesia is looking for Consultant as Green Bond Advisor

Program Overview

Utilities, Cities, Corporations and Industries around the world have issued billions in green bonds to fund renewables development. Green banks in North America, Asia and Europe are backing investments in distributed resources and energy efficiency. Together, they can attract hundreds of billions in institutional and financial market money to fund investments in large-scale renewables and public sector investments in local distributed generation. They can also work together to support utility transitions away from high-cost legacy generation to lower-cost "green" generation.

Indonesia, with its ambitious strategy to transition to 23% renewable energy in the energy mix by 2025 require massive capital by its utility, cities and companies. In addition, progressive municipal/city leaders and corporate RE targets have also looked into the opportunity to tap into green bond pool of fund. Unfortunately, thus far, only one state owned enterprise in Indonesia managed to raise and tapped almost 3 Trillion IDR of green bond internationally.

The Green Bond Advisor will focus on guiding analysts and senior analysts on a wide range of activities, including research, analysis, and writing in developing green bond framework/strategy for the main stakeholders.

The Green Bond advisor will also advise on the stakeholder engagement and management; supporting strategy development; and planning and facilitation of workshops and events.
