Traineeship on RE & EE upscale activities (Project: CASE)

Project Overview

GIZ is currently implementing a program, funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), called “Clean, Affordable, and Secure Energy for Southeast Asia“ (CASE). CASE 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 Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam and includes both national and regional activities. It is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).

Anchored in Indonesia with the political partner “Ministry of National Development Planning” (Bappenas), and implemented by GIZ Indonesia and Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR) with further support of international partners Agora Energiewende and New Climate Institute, CASE will propose evidence-based solutions to the challenges met by decision-makers in the design and implementation of the energy system of the future and build societal support around those solutions. A joint fact-finding approach will be applied, involving expert analysis and dialogue to work towards consensus by narrowing areas of disagreement. The project is being implemented between March 2020 and February 2027.

The project objective is to be achieved through three areas of intervention, clustered in three outputs:

  • Output I: Research and Evidence: The evidence base for an energy transition in SEA is improved.
  • Output II: Transparency and Mapping: Transparency and coordination of activities related to energy transition is strengthened to maximize synergies.
  • Output III: Dialogue (non-energy sector): The dialogue on energy transition within government (and public) bodies is improved.
  • Output IV: Technical Assistance (energy sector): Capacities of key energy sector stakeholders on energy transition are strengthened.
  • Output V: Promoting public discourse: A public discourse on energy transition is established.

To support implementation of the programme in Indonesia, we seek one (1) motivated and qualified Indonesian candidate for this position.
