Over 63% of Indonesia’s energy is generated by coal. And this number has only been growing since 2016. The country wants to move away from coal and towards renewable energy. Fast.
- By 2025, it wants renewables to make 23% of its energy mix—as proposed by the 2017 National Energy General Plan (RUEN 2017). The RUEN is the government’s long-term energy roadmap.
- Even more strikingly, Indonesia’s now aiming for a 48% renewables share by 2030. This, as per the 2021-2030 Electricity Power Supply Business Plan (RUPTL)—still in draft stage draft stage The details of this RUPTL—nicknamed the “green RUPTL”— haven’t been made available to the public.
