The Department of Energy and Climate Change of the United Kingdom (DECC) – the British Embassy in Jakarta in cooperation with the Agency for Research and Development of Energy and Mineral Resources (ARDEMR) in Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) -, develop Indonesia 2050 Calculator. The 2050 Calculator is an interactive user-friendly tool that allows non-experts to develop their own combination of levels of change in different technologies and sectors of the economy to explore different energy and emissions scenarios by 2050.

In order to help managing this project, ARDEMR had appointed Indonesian Institute for Energy Economic (IIEE) as an external managing office. Indonesian Institute for Energy Economics in collaboration with core team of Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) develop Indonesian 2050 Pathway Calculator (I2050PC). The project was funded by Foreign Commonwealth Office, United Kingdom (FCO-UK). A number of stakeholder consultations with government ministries/agencies, private sectors, universities, associations, civil society were performed to obtain information, inputs, comments and suggestions. IIEE also facilitated focus group discussion for multi-stakeholder in order to bring together their own interest in a problem situation and engaged them in the process of dialogue that can improve the I2050 PC modeling.Calculator

The 2050 Calculator was firstly developed by Department of Energy and Climate Change, UK. 2050 Calculator is open source energy and emissions calculator model which allows the user to explore all high-level energy and emission pathway options the country faces. In the process of developing I2050PC, the following steps shall be required: model structure developments, one pager development, excel spread sheet development, and web tool integration. Web tool is a website that allows users to interactively develop their own combination of levels of change in different technologies and sectors of the economy to explore different energy and emissions scenarios by 2050.

Indonesia 2050 Pathway Calculator as a public communication tool that can help the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in developing a sustainable energy policy and measurable to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The calculator covers the most important economic sectors (energy, mining, transport, industry, buildings, agriculture, waste and forestry) and will include four trajectories for each of the options. Ranging from little or no effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or save energy (level 1) to extremely ambitious changes that push towards the physical or technical limits of what can be achieved (level 4).
