WRI Indonesia’s e-mobility portfolio focus on reducing cities’ GHG emission through sustainable transportation, vehicle electrification and, in-paralel with the energy and climate programs, greening the electricity grid to reach optimum emission reduction. Our mission is to help cities and provinces to implement low carbon development, particularly in transportation and energy sectors, to achieve economic, social, and environmental goals.
Bali Climate and Green Development Initiative
The Bali Climate and Green Development initiative believes that fostering the agency and leadership of local government and broader segments of the society is key to ensure that the climate neutrality agenda remains strong and becomes a way of life and pathway for development, regardless of national and local political transitions. It will require concerted efforts amongst various actors to create breakthroughs with long-lasting climate, social, and economic impacts. Our main targets in this project consist of local government, especially in the field of energy and transportation, electric vehicle (EV) and clean energy business owners, coastal communities, and sustainable tourism communities. While most of them have already had a common understanding towards the urgency of climate transition, they need to be equipped with more information, knowledge, and thought-leadership avenues to build ideas and make actions.
Transformative Urban mobility Initiative (TUMI)
The TUMI E-Bus Mission will build off WRI’s previous e-bus research and technical assistance activities. The project incorporates both deep transition support in a selected group of cities and peer-to-peer mentorship between cities. Through both the deep transition assistance and the mentorship program, the TUMI E-Bus Mission will systematically dismantle barriers to mass e-bus adoption, while mobilizing government and industry action. As part of TUMI’s coalition, WRI Indonesia plays key role in national and city stakeholder management, execution of the e-bus workplan, and mentee program support. In this phase 2 TUMI E-Bus Mission, WRI Indonesia will work with Transjakarta on e-bus impact monitoring by providing an end-to-end emissions monitoring system tools and work with Jakarta’s e-bus stakeholders on sub-coalition establishment.
The Electric Mobility Transport Analyst will be based in Bali and work closely with the Bali Climate & Green Development Initiative team to build a sustainable transport ecosystem with key stakeholders in the transition towards Bali Net Zero Emission 2045 through transport decarbonization. Besides Bali program, the analyst will also work in helping sub-national governments in achieving low carbon transportation towards e-bus deployment with a frequent travel across cities in Indonesia and teleworking from Bali.
