The general idea of the LCORE-INDO approach is to bring policy advisory and project implementation together in order to provide for a broad and sustainable development of the Indonesian RE sector.

This approach is carried out in the three main application areas and comprises a comprehensive stakeholder involvement such as governmental institutions and the private sector. Based upon cost benefit assessments and the consideration of greenhouse gas abatement costs, the most favorable RE solutions are identified and implemented while strengthening the capacity of relevant RE stakeholders in Indonesia. The implementation strategy aims to enable the stakeholders to formulate implementation oriented policies, guidelines and to develop support programs to promote the use of renewable energy efficiently.

In each application area, activities will be structured according to the following steps:

Studies provide a realistic assessment of the technical and economic potential of RE and the associated CO2 reduction potential and demonstrate approaches on how it can be expanded further.
Pilot projects demonstrate the feasibility of the applied technologies and business models.
Through seminars and training measures relevant stakeholders are informed about the results of studies and pilot projects, become familiar with RE technologies and business models and thereby can identify their potential and built their capacity.
Action plans and best practice guidelines for the dissemination of demonstrated technologies and business models are developed in collaboration with public and private actors, in order to bring all relevant stakeholders together.
A monitoring and evaluation system is established, which contributes to continuous improvement of policies, guidelines and support programs, and incorporates the results into the development of a Monitoring Reporting Verification (MRV) system for the energy sector in Indonesia.
