The task force’s policy lead, Oki Muraza, presented several proposals for key performance indicators in the policy recommendations, which should serve as indicators while monitoring the progress of the policy recommendations, including the increase in the percentage of renewable energy in relation to total global energy supply and job creation. related to clean energy and low-emission technologies.

“We have compiled this KPI taking into account the policies that have been developed under Italy’s B20 presidency by adding several aspects that are in line with the policy recommendations of the B20 this year,” Muraza said.

In addition, policy recommendations made should be consistent with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), such as those related to clean and affordable energy (SDG #7 Clean and Affordable Energy) and climate action (SDG #13 climate action). .

On the same occasion, the Task Force Vice-Chair, Agung Wicaksono, informed that the Task Force still has a call to the Task Force in June 2022 to submit the final policy recommendations.

In addition, he also listed several other important activities that will be organized by the working group after the last call of the working group, including the B20/G20 Ministerial Dialogue in July 2022; an investment forum entitled “2nd Partners in Energy Transition”, which will be organized in collaboration with the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs; the “SOE Trade & Investment Forum”, which will be held in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Enterprises in September; and the B20 summit in November.
