The RENEW-SEA Project, funded by the Tara Foundation, envisions that subnational governments across Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand) are empowered and actively driving the sustainable energy transition at the subnational level, ideally with robust plans in place to scale up renewable energy and improve energy efficiency, thereby supporting national progress toward net-zero.

ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability will work toward this through an initial 12-month project to mobilize and empower subnational governments through technical, capacity, and policy support aimed at accelerating the uptake of renewable energy at the subnational level, providing them with the knowledge, tools, and network needed for successful renewable energy deployment. This goal is pursued to not only address climate change but also to spur sustainable economic development and create a more responsive and informed civic ecosystem, while continuing to develop the competencies of subnational governments, and also exploring relevant enabling measures at the national level. Through strategic partnerships and targeted interventions in the project’s context, we envision a future where local governments actively contribute to the global transition to net-zero emissions.
