Indonesia is seeking to revitalize some of its carbon-based power plants such as coal-fired, gas-fired and diesel-fired power plants with cheaper and reliable new sources of power. This has been iterated by the government by setting an ambitious target to shift the country’s electricity production towards more renewable sources. The General Planning for National Energy (RUEN) and General Planning for National Electricity (RKUN) stipulates that Indonesia must reach 23 percent primary energy mix from renewable energy sources by 2025. With less than five years to fulfill the target, shifting towards renewable energy requires more than just national and domestic efforts.
At the same time, China is facing global pressure to commit to carbon neutrality. Chinese President Xi Jinping has made a statement in 2019 that the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) that China’s multibillion-dollar global infrastructure development projects, must be green and sustainable while vowing to make China carbon neutral by 2060. As one of world’s leaders in technology and finance, the country has advanced its technologies in renewable energy sectors. Chinese renewable energy companies are now renowned for their technology, such as in solar, hydro, and wind powers. In line with the government’s agenda, these companies have also expanded and invested abroad.
What China has in terms of renewable energy technology and more advanced financing capability, aligns with the urgency to improve the implementation of renewable energy sources in Indonesia. The situation offers Indonesia a promising opportunity to realize its renewable energy target and potentials. Simultaneously, Indonesia presents a lucrative market with growing population and needs for electricity from renewable energy sources.
In light of this circumstance, CSIS Indonesia and Tenggara Strategics have teamed up with the Embassy of Indonesia (KBRI) in Beijing, the Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board and the Directorate General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, to help Indonesian renewable energy players and stakeholders to realize some of the potential collaborations with Chinese counterparts through RE Invest Indonesia.
Chinese RE Invest Indonesia is a platform that aims to facilitate dialogues between Indonesian stakeholders and players, and private enterprises from China. It is our goal to improve bilateral relations between Indonesia and China in renewable energy and mobilize real investments into the sector. In China RE Invest Indonesia, two sessions on solar energy and wind energy sectors, of which China is renowned as, will be convened.
