The Government of Indonesia has announced plans to boost its solar power generating capacity by an additional 4.7 GW by 2030 as part of its efforts in achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2060.

In line with this, the government has also approved Perusahaan Listrik Negara’s (PLN) Power Procurement Plan/ Rencana Usaha Penyediaan Tenaga Listrik (RUPTL) for 2021–30. The plan is estimated to add 51.6 per cent more renewable generating capacity to the grid. The RUPTL proposes the installation of 40.6 GW of new capacity over the next ten years, with 21 GW of renewable energy and 19.6 GW of fossil-fuel based generation. More private power companies or independent power producers will be allowed to participate in the building of new facilities.
