The Indonesia Domestic Biogas Program (IDBP), or the BIRU (Domestic Biogas) program, is a development program implemented by Yayasan Rumah Energi (YRE) with national support from the Directorate General of New Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation. The objective of the IDBP is to deploy domestic biodigesters as a local, sustainable energy source through the development of a commercial, market oriented sector in Indonesia.
By 1 Oktober 2021, a total of 26.082 units bio-digester have been built in twelve provinces (Lampung, Banten, West Java, Central Java, DI. Yogyakarta, East Java, Bali, West Nusa Tenggara, East Nusa Tenggara, South Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi and Gorontalo). Plant construction and maintenance are the responsibility of Construction Partner Organizations (CPO) which are new or existing local organizations/SMEs. Currently around 40 CPOs are working under a partnership agreement with IDBP.
The Biogas User Survey (BUS) is an important instrument to measure the satisfaction rates of users towards biogas, to check the technical performance of the digesters and to use the result as the source of carbon monitoring of IDBP annually. The BUS also gives the programme management and stakeholders, including the users, good insights in the reliability and success of the biogas sector development approach as it is aimed on sustainable use of the biogas technology as introduced by the programme. The scope of BUS also encompasses user’s profile, economic impacts from using biogas and its derivative, social and environmental impact. The data acquired during the survey will be used by YRE to be able to improve its approaches and amplifying impacts.
The functionality of the installed plants is an important aspect of the Programme, apart from the quantitative construction figures. In addition, various direct and indirect but important benefits enjoyed by the users of biogas technology may be taken into consideration. It is imperative to know in what degree the users of biogas, who are the ultimate beneficiary of the programme, have derived benefits from their plants and the program as a whole and to what extent they are satisfied with the technology. It is equally important to assess the socio-economic impact brought about by this technology. Thus, in order to obtain necessary feedbacks about the technology, it is essential to monitor both the technology and its impact on user satisfaction by conducting appropriate and detailed surveys at regular intervals.
IDBP has been registered as a Voluntary Gold Standard Program of Activities in 2013. Biogas User Survey
2021 must be done where all parameters that refer to indicators which are related to the SDG Impact monitoring under the Gold Standard for the Global Goals (GS4GG). The User Survey will therefore also be used a Carbon Monitoring Survey in line with the monitoring requirements set forth under the Gold Standard.
For this purpose, IDBP will engage an experienced and credible consultant to conduct the Users Survey for the current year 2021/22. For that reason the company will be engaged to undertake this 10th user survey after provided agreement is reached on price and contract conditions.
