Indonesia eyes higher power consumption rate

It aims to boost the electricity per capita consumption rate to 1,200 kWh in 2019.

The Indonesian Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry plans to boost the domestic electricity per capita consumption rate to 1,200 kWh in 2019, from 1,050 kWh at the end of the first half of 2018, through the increased use of environmentally friendlier electric vehicles and stoves. A new regulation concerning electric cars is expected to be issued shortly. The development of electric stoves is meant to reduce the volume of Indonesia’s liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) imports and mainstream affordable and sustainable power supply sources.

The Indonesian government is also calling for investors and industry players to develop "more affordable" renewable energy sources, as part of its target to reach 23% of renewable energy in the country’s energy mix by 2025.
