About the conference


Collaboration in Action for Inclusive Energy Roadmap

The Indonesian government plays a significant role in the global economy and energy sector. This is reflected in Indonesia’s consecutive leadership in two international forums, namely the G20 in 2022 and ASEAN in 2023. The G20 Presidency in the energy sector resulted in the Bali Compact, a document containing principles for implementing and accelerating Net Zero Emissions (NZE). The Bali Compact has become a consensus among G20 member countries and can serve as a reference for non-G20 countries worldwide. In 2023, Indonesia also assumes the Chairmanship of ASEAN Energy Cooperation, with the theme of Sustainable Energy Security through Interconnectivity. This theme emerged as Indonesia’s response to making Indonesia and ASEAN the Epicenter of Growth and addressing ASEAN’s challenges in meeting energy adequacy and resilience in the ASEAN region.

On the road to the 41st ASEAN Minister on Energy Meeting (AMEM), The Energy Cooperation Coordinator under ASEAN 2023 Chairmanship Secretariat, in collaboration with Purnomo Yusgiantoro Center (PYC), Centre For Policy Development (CPD) Australia, Climateworks Centre, International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), Indonesia Research Institute for Decarbonisation (IRID), and the Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR) are organizing an Indonesian ASEAN Chairmanship 2023 side event, the PYC International Energy Conference 2023 on “Collaboration in Action for Inclusive Energy Roadmap”.

To provide a platform for academicians, researchers, experts and practitioners, government members and private sectors to share and network their experiences in the energy transition.

For this 4th conference, the theme will be “Collaboration in Action for Inclusive Energy Roadmap”. This theme was chosen considering the importance of accelerating the energy transition that includes not only the supply side but also the demand side. The way Indonesia approaches the energy transition tends to focus more on the supply side to meet the growing energy demand. With such an approach, more power plants will be built and more energy sources will be imported to meet the current and future energy demands. On the demand side, the transportation and industry sectors, as the two biggest energy consumption sectors in Indonesia, have been consuming massive amounts of fossil fuels. Energy transition in those two end-use energy sectors has different challenges and complexity than energy transition in the power sector. At the end of the conference, PYC will produce a policy brief that could be seen as an important reference to create an inclusive energy transition roadmap. The roadmap is also expected to be an indispensable signal to the ASEAN region that Indonesia is capable of being a pioneer in formulating inclusive energy policies, which is not considered by the stakeholders.
