Coal’s share in Indonesia’s energy mix reaches 64% in 2022

The share of renewables is at 20%.

The share of coal in Indonesia’s energy mix increased to 64% from 61% in 2022, meeting the electricity needed, following a 6.6% year-on-year rise in electricity demand.

In a report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said a total of 13GW of coal-fired plant projects are in the pipeline from 2021 to 2023. However, the Just Energy Transition Partnership is expected to speed up the phase-out of coal-fired output in the mid to long term.

“Indeed, one of the measures of this partnership, launched in November 2022, is the freeze of the current planned pipeline of coal-fired plants,” the report read.

“Other targets in this framework to accelerate the decarbonisation of the power sector include achieving peak power sector emissions by 2030 of no more than 290 (metric tonnes of carbon dioxide), and reaching a share of 34% of renewables in the generation mix by 2030,” it added. 

Around 20% of the country’s energy mix is composed of renewables led by hydropower, geothermal and biofuels, whilst gas-fired output made up 15%.
