The government of Indonesia continues to build power plants in a bid to provide adequate electricity to consumers while avoiding the use of conventional or fossil-based resources that are depleting. Thus, the government is making efforts to use new and renewable forms of energy to generate electricity since their use will help the country achieve its greenhouse gas emission reduction and energy mix targets. To this end, the Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry has called on partner companies to develop new and renewable energy-based power plants. Minister of the Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry, Ignasius Jonan views that 53 Independent Power Producers (IPPs) have agreed to develop new and renewable energy-based power plants. His Ministry has planned to develop 64 new and renewable energy-based power plants, with a total capacity of 400 megawatts (MW). (Ant)
