High Number of Firewood Users, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and World Bank Partner to Develop Clean Cookstove Program

2015-02-10 14:39:01

The number of biomass users in Indonesia is still high, based on a national socioeconomic survey from 2010 conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS), approximately 24.5 million or 40 percent of Indonesian households still use biomass fuel (wood fuel). These are generally households in rural and low-income areas. This fuel situation serves as the background for collaboration between the Ministry of Energy and the World Bank in the Indonesia Clean Stove Initiative program.
The Indonesia Clean Stove Initiative (CSI) is a collaborative effort between the Directorate General of New Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia, and the World Bank. It aims to scale up access to clean and efficient cooking in Indonesia, with focus on the 40% population who still rely on traditional biomass for cooking.
The program consists of four phases and is currently in the second stage of implementing a pilot program. This pilot program is being implemented in the Yogyakarta and Central Java region, with the following objectives: to pilot the Results Based Financing (RBF) approach and to generate lessons learned for the future national scale-up tha aims to achieve universal access to clean cooking in Indonesia.
First, cookstove manufacturers from Indonesia and other countries submit cookstoves to be included in the program, then the cookstoves that have been submitted by a third party are tested in the stove testing center at Yayasan Dian Desa. Based on test results, there are now five cookstoves that have been tested and are ready for marketing. These cookstoves will be marketed in the pilot program by the Market Aggregator. The market aggregators have been selected by the initiative to market the clean cookstoves that pass the pilot programís testing stage.

Since results-based financing incentives are based directly on verifiable results, the disbursement process will depend on the results which must be verified by an independent third party verification team. Results under the results-based financing Incentives are defined as qualified clean cookstoves sold and used by the buyers. Therefore, market aggregators who participate in the pilot program will receive financial Incentives only after the verification team confirms that qualified clean cookstove have been sold to and used by the households. To ensure that every qualified clean cookstoves sold can be tracked, market aggregators are required to keep records of all stoves sold under the pilot program and submit these records to BRI, the designated RBF incentives program administrator. The records will contain sufficient information for the independent verification team to track qualified clean stove buyers and to verify that clean stove was bought as the first stage of verification and used by end-users as the second stage of verification. The amount of incentives to be provided for each qualified stove will vary depending on stove ratings. This program is expected to create supply chain solution that will achieve the Program objectives in relation to the production, distribution and sale of Clean Cookstoves in Indonesia.
