    This report presents the findings of a Landscape Lifescape Analysis in the three areas of the MCA-I funded, Hivos-consortium program “Investing in Renewable Energy for Rural, Remote Communities”. The program has four primary components, implemented in three regions of Indonesia. Animal dung domestic biogas digesters will be constructed in three districts of Lombok, a follow-on from previous programs in which more than 15,000 biogas units have been installed by Hivos and its partners. Biogas digesters will also be constructed in the two selected districts of South Sulawesi (for simplicity referred to as Luwu), an area new to Hivos and its partners. All four components will be implemented across the four districts of Sumba (referred to herein as Sumba) as part of the wider “Sumba Iconic Island” program, including biogas digesters, solar photovoltaic electrification of schools including the dissemination of solar charged lanterns for school students and their families, solar powered maize and rice mills, and remote area solar charging kiosks. Two commercially-oriented service centres will also be established in Sumba to support promotion, servicing and management of retributions. All projects are market based to a greater or lesser degree, with some degree of consumer subsidies for the biogas component in particular.
