Description


Overcoming barriers to solar and wind energy adoption in Indonesia: Learnings from India

Paul Buke (Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University)

Abstract: Solar and wind electricity generation technologies have become cost competitive, and account for a growing share of global investment in new electricity generation capacity. However, uptake in Indonesia remains slow. India has had much more recent success. This seminar will review key obstacles to uptake of solar and wind in Indonesia, and draw learnings from India’s success in procuring and developing low-price renewables projects using large-scale competitive reverse auctions and government-facilitated solar parks. The seminar will also review other reform options for Indonesia, including regulatory reforms, reductions in electricity subsidies, the introduction of a renewable portfolio obligation (RPO) scheme, and the establishment of an Indonesian Clean Energy Agency. If it is able to establish suitable regulatory and investment environments, Indonesia has the opportunity to vastly transform its electricity system over coming years.
