Research Centers

Tropical Renewable Energy Center

Tropical Renewable Energy Center FT UI

Tropical Renewable Energy Center (TREC) was established in the Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia in 2015. TREC carried out the most advanced studies on topics about renewable energy applications in tropical regions and provided high-quality research products by collaborating with scientists all over the world. TREC focused on research projects on the environment and energy issues, which are crucial for human beings in the 21st century.

Sustainable Energy Systems and Policy

Online Courses

Sustainable Energy Systems and Policy Universitas Indonesia (SESP UI) was established in 2015. It is an integrated research cluster on complex energy systems and policy analysis, trying to understand the relationship between environment, economic and social and their impact on energy systems.


Master of Energy Systems Engineering

The Master’s Program in Energy Systems Engineering aims to produce graduates capable of designing, analyzing, and applying energy systems to solve problems in the energy sector by utilizing a or interdisciplinary approach. The graduates of the program are expected to have proficiency in designing energy technology and system especially renewable and carbon-neutral energy, analyze energy economics, formulate energy policy, and understand professional ethics.


Advanced Lab

Energy Transition Lab

The Energy Transition Lab (ETL) is an advanced experimental lab to perform innovative and interdisciplinary research on the development of renewable and low-carbon technologies, electrochemical for solar PV, smart grid, energy storage and electrolyser, sustainable fuel, and carbon capture and utilization as key drivers in the energy transition.

Advanced Lab

Sustainable Energy System Lab​

Sustainable Energy Systems Lab (SESL) is an interdisciplinary approach in developing energy system model by combining engineering, economics, environment, social and policy aspects to support the transition away from fossil-based system and trying to understand it’s implication for society and especially on energy market designs on the behaviour of energy sector actors.
