Energy sustainability has long been one of the US-Indonesia shared interest as part of global efforts in combating climate change. In August 2015, President Obama announced the Clear Power Plan initiative, the first-ever carbon pollution standards for existing power plants, sets a goal of 32% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 relative to 2005 levels. In expanding this clean energy economy, President Obama has also initiated an easier access to solar energy for low and moderate-income households.

A similar vision was also proclaimed by Indonesia’s government which is to push forward the share of renewable energy sources in the total energy mix to 23% by 2025, up from its 5% current share. Furthermore, incentives, such as import-tax reduction, are being provided to lure investors to unleash country’s renewable energy potentials. The directorate of Energy Conservation of the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources is also putting solar power systems development as priority.

Early this September, U.S. and Indonesia have taken significant measures in exercising sustainable energy by signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on 35,000 MW power plant project. This energy cooperation comprised of several US companies, PLN, and the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources will be based on clean energy and renewable energy sources. This joint effort is only one of many collaborations between government, industry and civil society, to further the sustainable energy in both countries.

What is the latest renewable energy trends in the U.S. and Indonesia? What are recent regulations made by the US and Indonesia goverments and how these would impact both countries? What are the roles of other actors, such as industry and civil society, to further U.S. and Indonesia sustainability energy collaboration?

  • Ms. Angelina Galiteva, Founder of Renewables 100 Policies Institute and also serves as the Chairperson for the World Council for Renewable Energy
  • Ms. Maritje Hutapea, Director of New and Renewable Energy, Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM)
