Indonesia's Central Java targets 21% renewable demand by 2025

Four renewable energy projects are expected to be finished by end-2018.

The Central Java province of Indonesia has set a 21% target for renewables in total energy demand, 2% lower than the national target of 23%. The regional administration plans to issue a bylaw to adjust the gap between the targets.

Currently, the renewable share in Central Java's energy supply is 10%. There are four renewable energy projects funded by the Danish government (US$12.4m) that are expected to be fully operational by the end of 2018: in Semarang (landfill gas), in Karimun Jawa Island (PV), Cilacap (refuse-derived fuel from cement), and in Klaten (waste-water treatment). Another 75 MW geothermal project is under construction in Purwokerto.

According to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, renewable in Indonesia accounted for 12.6% of the energy mix in 2017, which exceeded expectations by 0.7%. Hydropower (7.3%) and geothermal (5%) were the most significant contributors to renewable power output.
