MORRE is a Locally Appropriate Mitigation Action (LAMA) intended to integrate land based and energy sectors to produce wood base bio-energy for rural electrification

Activities: (2016 - 2021)
The LAMA will increase revegetation of cleared mining concession land and rehabilitation of degraded land surrounding those mining areas by establishing short rotation coppice energy crop plantations. Woody biomass from the energy crops will be used as biofuel for generating power to electrify rural households through gasification technologies.

The LAMA is conducted through 3 implementation pahses:

  • Innovation Phase: develop a small, innovative pilot activity on a 700-1000 ha site with the potential for upscaling, test technologies at both upstream and downstream production lines, while identifying policy, government support and capacity building needs for upscaling
  • Transformation Phase: develop supporting policies and improving stakeholders’ capacity to create enabling conditions for upscaling the pilot activity to LAMAs, facilitate the development of four bankable scaled-up pilot activities on 2,800-4,000 ha of revegetated degraded land
  • Maturity Phase: full application of innovative solutions will be rolled out to maximise GHG reduction leverage

The LAMA will focus on 5 components:

  • Regulatory and policy framework
  • Awareness raising, campaign and promotion to get full support from the stakeholders
  • Technical support provision
  • Strengthening local community capacity
  • Developing MRV and evaluation systems

LAMA-MORRE covers capacity development for upstream producers and business entities, such as community groups in managing energy crop plantations, and downstream power producers, while simultaneously creating enabling conditions through supporting policies and government support.

With the supporting policy framework at the national level partly facilitated by LAMA-MORRE, the concept has the potential for replication in other regions of the country. The early stages of replication are expected to take place during project implementation, particularly in other open-pit coal mining regions in South Kalimantan and South Sumatra.
