Indonesia's Energy Support Measures: Shifting support from fossil fuels to clean energy

June 22, 2022 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm WIB

via Zoom

(Open to public)

Energy sector support measures are one of the key economic policy levers that the Government of Indonesia can use to influence energy production and consumption. These measures, however, often come at a high cost to the public budget. Therefore, it is important for Indonesia to ensure that current fiscal policies are properly aligned with energy and climate objectives, such as 23% renewable energy by 2025 and net-zero emissions by 2060.

This webinar serves as a starting point for stakeholders and the public to discuss the flow of public funding in Indonesia’s energy sector as experts shed light on the current status of support measures for fossil fuels, renewable energy, and clean technology.

In addition to highlighting the incentives and support measures available for the energy sector in Indonesia, this webinar also discusses relevant questions, such as:

  • Are these incentives helping or hindering Indonesia’s effort to improve access to clean and affordable energy?
  • Are incentives in line with energy transition policy objectives?
  • Are measures appropriately designed to provide social protections and reach those who need them most?

The webinar also launched a first-of-its-kind report that provides an account of all the support measures available for various energy types in Indonesia, including coal, oil and gas, electricity, renewable energy, biofuels, and electric vehicles.
