Indonesia RE + Solar

Does anyone have first hand experience (or live within) in Indonesia regarding solar systems, biomass, biogas, RMH, green building structures (besides the Green School)?

I am on a project with a tight schedule to develop a community using 100% locally generated, renewable energy

Local skills and materials are what I would like to use, especially for maintaining the systems once they're finished. 

I need to get some advice on these to avoid a long school of 'hard knocks'.  Any comments are REALLY appreciated.

thanks

100% locally generated is a pretty narrow requirement. Can they make glazing for solar gain?

That's my field - 100% RE, 100% off-grid -  i'm transitioning from single residential to community microgrids.  Challenging to say the least!

Glazing and solar collectors is not the problem here in indonesia.  It's heavily subsidized electric and LNG.  So i am looking for practical things that people have already done here... to avoid re-inventing the wheel.

there's huge RE benefits here... equator solar angles, plenty of water (also a big downside), and lotsa biomass/biogas potential.
