Project Overview and Role:

MENTARI (Menuju Transisi Energi Rendah Karbon) is a four-year programme that formally started on 6 January 2020. The programme aims to deliver inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction in Indonesia, by supporting the uptake of low carbon energy. Led by the British Embassy Jakarta, MENTARI is implemented by PT Palladium International Indonesia in consortium with Castlerock Consulting and Hivos. The programme has a specific focus on developing the low carbon energy sector to best support the disadvantaged communities, and specifically those in eastern Indonesia. By working closely with the Government of Indonesia and other stakeholders to improve the enabling environment and drive investment, MENTARI will demonstrate the possibilities of low carbon energy for Indonesia's economic development, job creation and social inclusion, while helping to mitigate climate and environmental impacts.

Through the Demonstration Projects strand, the program will deliver one small-scale low carbon energy pilot in eastern Indonesia and showcase a replicable low carbon energy business model that is economically feasible and can generate inclusive economic growth benefits. In the first two years of the programme, MENTARI will implement these demonstration projects in selected villages in eastern Indonesia. 

The first demonstration project will be located in Sumba and will use off-grid technology. The technical delivery will be complemented by the delivery of training on Operations & Maintenance (O&M), Productive Uses of Power (PuE), and G&I to the local community, BUMDes, and O&M providers to foster local ownership, improve local capacity to manage and maximise the lifetime of the low carbon energy facility, and showcase a feasible business case. 

In the early stages of project implementation, the Demonstration Project team has completed a series of activities, including developing a business case, collecting baseline data for the needs of a feasibility study and developing an intervention plan, interviews and group discussions with key figures at the community level, and have a consultation with the government at the sub-district level, and district level. 

By looking at the number and variety of data and information that has been obtained, a way of managing and presenting data is needed that can make it easier for stakeholders to understand the information and findings. One of the solutions is to visualise the data in an Interactive Webtools and GIS Maps Database on a website that can be accessed easily by anyone. The information in this map is expected to continue to be used and developed in accordance with the stages of the program implementation. In short, the objectives of this tool are: 

  1. To present the information in visual and interactive ways for key users.  
  2. Interactive mapping involves using maps that allow zooming in and out, panning around, identifying specific features, querying underlying data such as by topic or a specific indicator (e.g., households connected to the mini-grid, socioeconomic status, status of payment, and productive activities undertaken)
  3. To generate reports and other means of using or visualising select information in the map.

MENTARI has setup a programme website (web microsite) which will serve as the platform to integrate this Interactive
Webtools and GIS Maps Database. Furthermore, the programme website will be regularly maintained and updated with
contents provided by the MENTARI Communications and/or Collaboration & Networking (C&N) team.
