GIZ Indonesia for the Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy for South East Asia (CASE) Project: Advisor on Energy Transition

 The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis. GIZ has been working in Indonesia since 1975 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).


The regional programme ‘"Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy for South East Asia" (CASE) has been commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) in April 2020, with an implementation period until February 2024.


The programme aims to drive change in the power sector in South East Asia (SEA) towards increased ambitions with regards to climate change. It focuses on the four main SEA countries (Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam) in terms of energy demand and also foresees regional interventions. Composed of a wide range of organizations and driven by strong regional cohesion and network, CASE will propose evidence-based solutions to the challenges met by decision makers and build societal support around those solutions. CASE will directly contribute to the transition of the power sector towards an innovative, economically successful and environmentally friendly model for SEA. Overall, the CASE programme consists of five components:


As a regional programme, CASE is implemented through a consortium. In Indonesia, it is implemented through GIZ Indonesia, together with the Institute of Essential Service Reform (IESR) and supported by the international consortium partners. The political partner for Indonesia is the National Planning Ministry (Bappenas).
