Renewable Energy

Rumah Energi has provided access to renewable energy and food security for the people of Indonesia since 2012 by becoming a non-profit civil society organization that focuses on developing and disseminating the use of Renewable Energy (EBT) and processing organic waste into renewable energy sources.

After centuries of using fossil fuels for energy procurement, a global perspective is beginning to change to renewable energy sources which are considered as one of the key factors of future community development strategies. Rumah Energi has had experience in providing access to renewable energy to the people of Indonesia.

Rumah Energi implements programs related to renewable energy as electricity and gas by utilizing organic waste and renewable natural resources. A series of programs that have been carried out by Rumah Energi is providing electricity access to the East Nusa Tenggara community using solar photovoltaic (Solar PV) and access to gas through home biogas (BIRU) for cooking. It supports Rumah Energi endeavours to provide access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all (SDGs 7).

One of the leading programs of the Rumah Energi for renewable energy is the Indonesia Domestic Biogas (BIRU) program in processing organic waste for the procurement of clean energy in the form of gas.

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.
