With the Government of Indonesia (GoI) setting 23% target for new and renewable energy (RE) portion in the energy mix by 2025, Indonesia is planning to significantly increase RE investments to US$38 billion. For that reason, Indonesia has been actively making efforts to facilitate RE investments from the private sector. With that backdrop, the Renewable Energy for Indonesia 2015 (RE4I) is set to provide a platform for potential investors to understand the key development issues of investing in Indonesia’s RE sector. Supported by the Indonesian Renewable Energy Society (Masyarakat Energy Terbarukan Indonesia/METI), RE4I is organized on November 24 – 25, 2015 in Kemayoran, Jakarta.
In this opportunity, ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE)’s Executive Director, Dr. Sanjayan Velautham, was requested to deliver special remarks for the opening ceremony. Dr. Velautham’s remarks emphasized on RE situation and targets in each ASEAN Member States (AMS), as well as challenges and opportunities. For the participants—who mostly came from the private sector—Dr. Velautham’s presentation provided background information of the RE investment direction in AMS, including Indonesia. It was also mentioned that ACE is supporting all those targets with synchronized data and planning, summarized in the recently launched ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC) 2016 – 2025 and the 4th ASEAN Energy Outlook (AEO4), respectively.
