East Java province, the second largest province in Indonesia depends mainly on fossil fuels as the main source of energy like other regions within Indonesia. With the increase in demand every year and becoming a net importer of oil and gas after discontinuing from the member-ship of “Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in 2008”, the high sub-sidies by the government on energy produced from fossil fuels for satisfying the local consumer has become a burden on it within the country (Renewable Energy Assessment, May 2010, p. 2).With the government target to diversify energy with “5% bio fuel and 5% on geo-thermal and other renewable by 2025” (Haeni et.al., 2008, p.28) in the total energy mix, it is known that East Java seems to be one of the major contributor in this regard. The research question primarily focus on the aspect of which are the main areas of applica-tion where renewable energy can play a role and under what conditions the application of renewable energy projects can become feasible. It concentrates mainly on the result after doing a comparative analysis of the impact of the installed renewable energy systems in the selected three different regions of East Java, which simplifies and gives a broader general picture of the role of renewable energy for rural village development in this entire province. The result shows that biogas, solar and micro-hydro are the main potentials for application in rural areas in the field of cooking and electricity. The renewable projects can be implemented and executed effectively in the rural province only if all the stake holders are mutually co-coordinating and taking into account the proper analysis of the social, technical and financial factor in the regions. The independent approach of the stake holders is not a suitable pathway for any rural development in the region to meet their demands in appropriate and efficient manner. This report also provides information on the available potential and installed capacities of renewable energy in the province.
