The transformation of energy from fossil fuel to renewable energy is becoming increasingly important for Indonesia to meet its energy needs and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore, Indonesia has ratified its commitment to maintain global temperatures below 1.5 °C, which is in line with the Paris Agreement, through Law No. 6 of 2016. By continuously updating technical regulations in light of this rule of law, stated by the Enhanced NDC target, Indonesia commits itself to reducing GHG emissions with an unconditional scenario of 31.8% and with conditional scenario of 43.2% (international assistance) by 2030 against baseline emission projection. For the energy sector, it means a reduction in GHG emissions of 357 million tons of CO2e in 2030 or 446 million tons of CO2e with international assistance. In achieving this target, the energy transition is becoming an important program. In addition, several global crises that occurred throughout 2022 show how vulnerable fossil energy sources are to world geopolitical conditions. This crisis can be a momentum for Indonesia to accelerate its energy transition.
At the G20 Summit in November 2022, Indonesia received an energy transition investment commitment of USD 20 billion through the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) scheme, supported by International Partnership Group (IPG) and Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ). This project goal mainly will focus on accelerating the early retirement of coal-fired power plants (PLTU) and speeding up renewable energy development in Indonesia with a sense of framework in justice and ambitious decarbonization commitments, as well as strong and established economic development. After a year this pledge was floated, the Indonesian JETP Secretariat launched the Comprehensive Investment and Policy Plan (CIPP) for this project. The JETP CIPP covered recommendations that support Indonesia ambitious just energy transition pathway focusing on 1) energy transition pathway for Indonesia’s power sector; 2) policy enablers and recommendations to support power sector decarbonization; 3) financial needs, requirements, and modalities for identified projects; and 4) synthesizing a Just Transition framework to guide the implementation of the project.
It is important to note that in transforming the energy system to net zero in line with the Paris Agreement, decisive policy direction and scaling up the solutions would have to happen within this decade. According to IESR study, renewable energy would have to reach 140 GW by the end of the decade, mainly by deploying solar with more than 100 GW installed capacity. The main reason is that renewables are already competitive compared to subsidized fossil fuels. Moreover, the cost of deploying renewables would continue to decline, therefore integrating renewables is cost-effective to mitigate GHG emissions in the energy sector. However, the energy policy direction is not reflecting the same trend. Even more, the updated RPP KEN lowers the renewable energy mix while accelerating other fossil fuel-related alternatives such as CCS, or other new energy such as nuclear. he Government of Indonesia since 2021 is currently processing the draft of New and Renewable Energy law, which in addition to the renewable energy, there is also a focus on new energy,which cover new emerging technologies such as Carbon Capture Storage and Utilization Storage (CCS/CCUS), Coal gasification, and Nuclear Energy. Nuclear energy specifically has been quoted to receive
There are numerous surveys conducted on the acceptability of emerging technology such as nuclear. According to BATAN, the acceptability has risen to the 77% level, suggesting that 3 out of 4 people accept nuclear technology to be built in Indonesia. However, there is no clarity on how the methodology (target audience, questionnaire, demographic), limiting the potential for referencing and validating the results. Another paper shows that the public understanding of nuclear is low, however, acceptance is high. All in all, as a strategic subject in upcoming policies, it is essential to have transparency of methodology and data/results, therefore providing a good base for policy-making for this new emerging technology.
