Lowongan Magang di Energising Development (Endev)

Internship2014The Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. ENDEV Indonesia is opening an Internship Program
ENDEV Indonesia aims to sustainably provide electricity to 112.000 people, 200 institutions, and 340 productive use applications through the use of renewable energy technologies. While current technology focus is on micro-hydro power (MHP), the project is also considering other technologies such as solar mini-grids (PVVP – photovoltaic village power) and biomass. Experience has shown that sustainability has been an issue while implementing MHP for rural development. There have been many cases where installed MHPs failed within a few months or years, far shorter of its actual life expectancy. Challenges regarding MHP sustainability vary, from managerial to technical issues and occur during both the development and operational process. Monitoring and evaluation are critical to ensure performance of the schemes while achieving the project goals, anticipate upcoming problems that might arise and promote improvements through lessons learned. Project performance relates directly to goals achieved, as well as quality which underpins sustainability of the MHP schemes.
Ensuring sustainability is performed by a cyclical process that includes regular monitoring, periodic evaluation, and adjustments on the implementation process as required. It requires actions both in technical and social aspects. Preventive approach is conducted by ensuring quality of the installed RE system. Meanwhile strengthening social aspects is conducted by building participation and stronger bonds within the benefited community. Extensive operations and administration training is also conducted on village-level upon the completion of the MHP or PVVP installation. Besides that, our approach to ensure sustainability is to increase productivity of the community. Until now, we have been working on implementation of appliances that can be used as tools to generate income in the community together with local NGOs.
Students with strong analytical thinking are welcomed to be part of our team for an internship period. You will work together with us to empower communities to assess the quality of the renewable energy technology installed, operate and maintain renewable energy installations (specifically MHPs and PVs), develop sustainability monitoring approaches through means of communication and technology and contributing towards enhancing and streamlining project coordination and out-reach.
