COUNTRY PAGE - INDONESIA

Indonesia is the largest country in Southeast Asia and the fourth most populous country in the world. It is governed through a unitary presidential constitutional republic. It is the largest archipelagic country in the world, with over 17,000 islands. Indonesia is the fourth largest coal producer in the world and is a former major oil exporter. It was the only Southeast Asian country to have been part of OPEC. Around 87% of its energy comes from fossil fuels, the largest source coming from coal. Its high dependency on coal has made it difficult to shift to renewables, but the need has been acknowledged in recent years.

During the G20 Summit held in November 2022, Indonesia and the International Partners Group (IPG) - led by the United States and Japan and including Canada, Denmark, the European Union, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, and the United Kingdom announced the second ever Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP). The Joint Statement is a commitment from the IPG to mobilise an initial USD 20 bn from public and private finance over the next three to five years, to keep Indonesia's commitments to the Paris Agreement and the global warming limit of 1.5°C above pre- industrial levels within reach. The available finance will consist of a mix of grants, concessional loans, market-rate loans, guarantees, and private investments. Of the total investment, public sector pledges account for USD 10 bn, with the private sector aiming to mobilise the remaining USD 10 bn via the support of financial institutions coordinated by the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ).

Indonesia’s power sector is dominated by coal, which was responsible for over 60% of power generation in 2021. Together with its second-largest power source — natural gas (18%) — and oil (2%), fossil fuels account for 82% of Indonesia’s electricity supply. Established renewable energy sources such as geothermal (8%), hydro (5%) and biofuels and waste (5%) also provide a relevant share of the country’s power, whereas wind and solar still hold negligible shares accounting for a combined 0.2% of power generated in 2021.

The largest share of electricity is used in households (45%), followed by industry (31%) and services (16%).

Solar ice machines for fresh fish

The solar ice machine utilises a photovoltaic system integrated with a conventional icemaker. With optimal solar insolation, the machine produces a tonne of ice blocks every day. The solar ice machine operates independently of external electrical or diesel power, even in the most remote regions of the archipelago. It also does not need large battery storage, which makes it more flexible and ensures the catch can be cooled as soon as it has been brought ashore. Compared with a diesel-powered icemaker, the solar ice machine saves 40 tonnes of CO2 and 14,000 litres of diesel per year, while also cutting operating costs by around 30 percent.

1,000 Islands: rural electrification through renewable energy

Outside the islands of Java and Bali, and particularly in the less developed eastern regions of Indonesia, many people still have no access to electricity. The “1000 Islands” programme utilises small hydropower plants and solar mini-grids to contribute to environmentally sound and climate-friendly energy supply and thus to social and economic development in remote regions of Indonesia.
