The BIRU Program is a multi-stakeholder program initiated by HIVOS in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) and then implemented by Rumah Energi. The BIRU program aims to provide access to renewable energy in the form of biogas to the people of Indonesia.
The BIRU program that has been running since 2009 has reached 13 provinces in Indonesia, namely Lampung, Banten, West Java, DKI Jakarta, Central Java, D.I. Yogyakarta, East Java, Bali, Central Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi, South Sulawesi, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara. Initially the BIRU Program was managed in collaboration with Hivos and Rumah Energi, but since 2012 the management of this program was left entirely to Rumah Energi.
