Why

Indonesia aims to achieve universal electricity access by 2019. However, the electrification project is still mainly driven by coal power plan, despite the country’s abundant renewable energy sources, such as geothermal, solar, ocean, and hydropower. If the government continues using coal power plant, Indonesia may not be able to attain the target of 23 percent of renewable energy in 2025 mandated by the National Energy Policy. Furthermore, the use of coal can also compromise Indonesia’s efforts to reduce Indonesia’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 29 per cent by 2030, especially since energy sector is one of the significant emissions contributor and the government aims to reduce emissions from the energy sector by 11 percent by 2030.
