Abstract:The industrial sector is a crucial sector to Indonesia's economic growth. At the same time, the sector has always been one of the highest energy consumers in Indonesia, making energy efficiency in industry important. This study aims to investigate the possibility of using actor-based analysis to improve energy efficiency measures in Indonesia’s energy-intensive industries by using the fertilizer industry as a case study. A stakeholder analysis was conducted to identify relevant actors, and an adaptation to the AOC (actors, objectives, context) framework is used to analyze the qualitative data obtained through document analysis and semi-structured interviews. The results show that energy efficiency in the Indonesian fertilizer industry is incorporated as a part of energy management and Green Industry Certification conducted by Indonesia’s Ministry of Industry. The results also reveal actors who are involved in the energy efficiency of the fertilizer industry in Indonesia, their objectives in formulating and/or implementing energy efficiency measures or policies, and the contexts in which actors see their objectives. These results lead to three improvement suggestions for industry and policymakers. I believe that the adapted AOC framework can be applied to other industrial sectors in Indonesia as they fall under a similar legal framework and have similar actors involved. This research contributes to the advancement of the literature in the use of the AOC framework for industrial energy efficiency by demonstrating how the AOC framework, with the addition of cognition and motivation aspects, is utilized. Yet, further research on actors and energy efficiency in Indonesia is still necessary to get a more comprehensive picture of how actors influence energy efficiency measures in the Indonesian industry.
