Indonesia, despite possessing massive solar energy potential, has seen only a minimal integration of PV into its electricity grids, accounting for less than 0.1 percent of total installed capacity in 2021. This low utilization can be attributed to Indonesia’s historical reliance on coal due to its abundance and affordability, with two-thirds of electricity generation powered by coal. However, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon as solar PV costs continue to decline, coupled with policy reforms that are reshaping the energy landscape.
In recent years, Indonesia has witnessed the emergence of new solar facilities and a commitment to renewable energy in its 10-year business plan, where renewables constitute over half of the planned new capacity.
Notably, Indonesia’s state utility, Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), announced plans in September to add an impressive 32 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity and enhance its grids to connect to more renewable sources, marking a substantial step towards reducing coal dependence and accelerating the adoption of renewables.
The recent changes in local content rules for solar panels and the investment focus further underline Indonesia’s commitment to embracing a greener, more sustainable energy future.
Join our webinar to explore the remarkable journey of Indonesia’s solar energy transformation and its pivotal role in the global shift towards renewable power.
