About Indonesia Demand-Driven Green Innovation

The Demand-Driven Green Innovation Subprogram supports pro-poor clean energy innovation by facilitating the generation and market deployment of new business models, products and services.

Its objective is to help the private sector identify and exploit opportunities for clean energy innovation. The Subprogram is executed by a core team of local and international private sector and non-profit implementing partners.

Approach to Demand-Driven Green Innovation

The focus of the Subprogram is to serve the clean energy needs of poor communities in Indonesia.

This is achieved by identifying needs, generating promising concepts, and designing new products and services in partnership with market partners.  The Subprogram is organized as a tournament whereby market ideas compete for successive rounds of deeper and broader support. Ideas that do not receive sufficient market buy-in, are progressively screened out of the Program. This ensures that minimal time and resources is spent on working on prototypes that will never be commercialized.

The program has six Stages, and begins by identifying a target community to work with. This is followed by identifying critical clean energy needs that are prospective market opportunities. Needs are identified through a crowdsourcing “call for challenges” campaign, through field research and through stakeholder workshops. Promising initial concepts are then systematically developed through iterative rounds of design, prototyping and testing before they culminate into market-ready offerings.  Once the product/service is market-ready it must be implemented, a process that involves manufacturing, distribution chains, infrastructure creation.  When the product/service is available commercially on the market it is considered commercialised.

The Subprogram’s approach to clean energy innovation involves the development of product and service solutions using human-centred design methods.  In addition to relying on in-house teams, the program engages the community for which it is designing in the process of creation.  As the solution progresses the program also involve local market partners in the refinement of the design – relying on them for the full implementation of a commercialised product/service.

 

The subprogram has six Stages:

Locating

The subprogram begins by locating and selecting a target community to work with, based on an extensive list of criteria.

Exploration

Locating is followed by exploring critical clean energy needs that are prospective market opportunities.

Co-creation

Needs are identified through a crowdsourcing “call for challenges” campaign, through field research and through stakeholder workshops. The list of submitted challenges will be narrowed down through a process that encourages co-creation with the target community.

Partnership

Market Partners will be identified, screened and selected to ensure the required high standards of expertise and quality are met.

Iteration and Testing

Promising initial concepts are then systematically developed through iterative rounds of design, prototyping and testing before they culminate into market-ready offerings.

Delivery

Once the product/service is market-ready it will be validated and developed, a process that involves manufacturing, distribution chains, infrastructure creation. When the product/service is available to be delivered and presented on the market it is considered commercialised.

The Subprogram’s approach to clean energy innovation involves the development of product and service solutions using human-centred design methods.  In addition to relying on in-house teams, the program engages the community for which it is designing in the process of creation.  As the solution progresses the program also involve local market partners in the refinement of the design – relying on them for the full implementation of a commercialised product/service.
