The first meeting of the Australia-Indonesia Energy Transition Policy Dialogue was held in Canberra, Jakarta and online on 6 December 2022.
The Dialogue continues the focus on cooperation between Australia and Indonesia on the practical, policy and financial aspects of energy transition that emerged from the successful G20 Seminar Series CPD co-convened in Jakarta in July 2022 with the G20 Energy Transition Working Group, Climateworks Centre, the Institute of Essential Services Reform (IESR), Indonesia Research Institute for Decarbonization (IRID) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD).
Dialogue participants reflected on the progress and momentum obtained at G20, and its implications for a swift, orderly and just energy transition across the countries and in the region.
They discussed the role of energy infrastructure in a just transition, identifying areas of common interest and shared challenges.
The meeting also discussed governance and finance aspects of energy transition, including the role of public finance support mechanisms to catalyse investment.
This dialogue was the first in a multi-year collaboration between CPD and Climateworks and will continue to convene dialogues and conduct analysis over coming months.
We are grateful to the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra and the Purnomo Yusgiantoro Center in Jakarta for hosting participants in-person for this event.
