More than 25 projects have been realized from 2013 - 2017 under the last phase of the ESP (ESP3). The projects include capacity development and study tours, policy and feasibility studies and technical assistance, which aimed not only to strengthen the government but also to raise awareness of clean energy development within the society.
As the activities have produced numerous outputs and results and have generated many experiences, a further dissemination on lessons learned from these past activities is beneficial to facilitate and strengthen clean energy efforts in its broadest sense. The events gathered more than 100 key stakeholders from the national and provincial government of Indonesia, private sectors, civil societies, private sectors and industry associations, academia, energy donors and media journalists.
